Publisher Description

"Hoskyns brings a genuine love as well as an outsider's keen eye to the rise and fall of the California scene. . . . This is a riveting story, sensitively told."
Anthony DeCurtis, Contributing Editor, Rolling Stone
From enduring musical achievements to drug-fueled chaos and bed-hopping antics, the L.A. pop music scene in the sixties and seventies was like no other, and journalist Barney Hoskyns re-creates all the excitement and mayhem. Hotel California brings to life the genesis of Crosby, Stills, and Nash at Joni Mitchell’s house; the Eagles’ backstage fistfights after the success of "Hotel California"; the drama of David Geffen and the other money men who transformed the L.A. music scene; and more.

Good, but no functional listing or inclusion of photographs

...at least not in the iBook version. Index is included but without page numbers or hot links.

Hot Sheet Hotel + music

This book was so authentic about the Hollywood music scene in the 1960’s-..... it made me feel like I had to go to the clap clinic.
