Eagles and Mexican hotel group agree on the name “Hotel California”
Music group The Eagles and owners of a Mexican hotel reached an agreement on Thursday and ended a lawsuit filed by the American band in May last year on alleged misuse of the name “Hotel California,” which gives the title to his most famous song.
“This matter has been settled with an agreement between the parties,” attorney Tom Jirgal, who represents the group, said in a statement published on Billboard’s website, but that it does not provide details of the agreement’s content.
The prosecution and defense jointly rejected the suit in a federal court in Los Angeles, California, while the US Patent and Trademark Office accepted the hotel’s request to abandon its registration petition.
The Eagles claimed in their complaint that the owners of Hotel California in Todos Santos, a town in Baja California (Mexico), made their guests believe that the place had some relationship with the song since 2001.
The band denied that “Hotel California” had anything to do with this establishment, demanded that its owners stop profiting by using the name of the song and demanded compensation.
On their website, the hotel speaks of “legends” that point to a connection between the place and the song of the musical group but explicitly states that their owners “have no affiliation or promote any association” with the band.
“Hotel California” was part of the 1976 eponymous album of the Eagles, the best-selling rock band led by Glenn Frey and Don Henley.
The song became the biggest hit of the Eagles and fueled all sorts of stories about the famous hotel, from the one located in Mexico and even referred to a psychiatric center in Los Angeles.
The mysterious lyrics of “Hotel California” were interpreted as a metaphor for the excesses of artists’ lives, as well as a twilight look at the American dream and some even noted that they included satanic messages.

Director Bryan Singer is accused of raping a 17-year-old boy
A few days after being fired as director of the movie “Bohemian Rhapsody,” filmmaker Bryan Singer was sued on Thursday in Washington state on charges of raping a minor in 2003, according to media reports specialized.
The victim, Cesar Sanchez-Guzman, accused Singer of raping him on a yacht when he was seventeen. According to his testimony, the director forced the young man to have oral sex on him and then penetrated him.
Later, Singer told the young man that he was a well-known Hollywood producer and that he could help him enter the industry with roles as an actor if he did not reveal what happened.

The yacht was owned by Lester Waters, a billionaire investor in the world of technology “who often organized gay homosexual parties in the Seattle area,” according to the text.
