Backstory of disputed 'Hotel California' lyrics pages 'just felt thin,''

24/2/2024 10:24
        When Christie's was offered the chance to sell 13 pages of draft lyrics to the Eagles’ "Hotel California" in 2015, auction house executive Tom Lecky was "super excited."
        
        But red flags started waving when seller Craig Inciardi said he had gotten them from a writer who worked with the band decades earlier on a never-published biography.
        
        "It just felt thin, to me, and it felt like there was potential risk," Lecky testified Friday at a criminal trial surrounding the handwritten pages.
        
        Yet he later acknowledged that after leaving Christie's, he inquired again about potentially arranging a deal for the pages.
        
        "I'm a salesman," Lecky explained.
        
        Lecky testified for prosecutors at the trial of Inciardi, Glenn Horowitz and Edward Kosinski, three collectibles professionals who at various points had pages from the massive classic rock hit "Hotel California" and other songs from its eponymous album.
        
        The 1976 disc is the third-biggest seller in U.S. history</a>.
