The Inside Story – I’ve listened to the classic Eagle’s song, “Hotel California” probably hundreds of time, if not thousands. I memorized the lyrics many years ago, and often sing along (when I’m alone!). I recently began thinking about this song, and what a great little horror story it tells. “You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave!”
I’m sure the writers wrote much of the song in metaphors, but I thought a literal interpretation of the song would make a great story that could be expanded upon, to tell all of the things that happened “between the lines” of the actual lyrics.
The result is a novelette called “The Hotel California.”
In this story, a rock star named Adam Moss gets frustrated with life while his band, “The Fast Lane” is playing a gig in Las Vegas. Adam decides to buy a sports car and drive to Los Angeles, just to get away.
He ends up tired, while on a dark desert highway in California, and decides to stop for the night. Okay, you know the rest of the lyrics, so now take a look at what lies between the lines…
