Don't know if it's true or not, but I read that Hotel California inspired American Horror Story: Hotel.

Actually, the Eagles WERE a soap opera......

The drugs, the competitiveness, the fights, the affairs......

Stevie Nicks and Don Henley.....she had a breakdown and aborted his baby when either he dumped her or they broke up.....

The baby was a little girl, and Stevie had named her Sarah.

That is what/who Stevie's song 'Sarah' is about.

Frey and Henley were constantly competing in their music.....there were legendary fist fights, even in the recording studio......

There is so much, much more......

Very sad news,it's been a terrible start to the year in terms of much-loved celebrities passing way.I haven't been to many concerts in my life but I've been to see the Eagles twice,such is my appreciation of their music.As well as co-writing many of their hits he had solo success as well with The Heat Is On and Part Of You Part Of Me,the theme from Thelma & Louise.

Now there seems to be a possibility that medication Frey was taking for Rheumatoid Arthritis could have caused complications leading to his death.
