On this day in classic hits history (May 7, 1977) The Eagles hit No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘Hotel California’, the group’s fourth No.1! Eventually The Eagles would on to win the 1977 Grammy Award for “Record of the Year” for ‘Hotel California’ at the 20th Annual Grammy Awards. And if that wasn’t enough, the song’s guitar solo is ranked 8th on Guitar Magazine’s “Top 100 Guitar Solos” and was also voted the best solo of all time by readers of Guitarist magazine.
Here is a classic live performance by vintage Eagles, shortly before it went to No.1, on March 31, 1977 at the Capitol Centre in Lago, Maryland.
