Editorial Reviews

Review

'Hoskyns impresses with the sheer weight of testimony he has amassed and the skill with which he has woven it into a tightly coiled and elegiac narrative.' Christopher Silvester, Sunday Times 'A terrific account of the interface between idealism and squalor, art and commerce.' Guardian 'The author skillfully teases out the complex web of relationships between the artists, managers, and record executives who made up the West Coast's self-styled bohemian elite.' Ben Thompson, Independent 'if you are looking for the ingredients traditionally required of a good rock'n'roll story, then "Hotel California" has got the lot... An ambitious and authoritative account which makes overdue sense of a spectacularly decadent period of pop history' David Sinclair, Guardian

This book is a must for anyboby who grew up loving West Coast Country Rock in the '70's. From The Byrds to The Eagles and everyone in between, the book is a joy to read with it insights into the lives and careers of the artists who created this musical genre.

Having been a teenager during the time I found the book great. When I was a teenager I listened to the music but it's so interesting to have a look at how the artists lived. Highly recommend it!
