Artist Spent Over 60 Days Making A Graphic Novel Version Of The “Hotel California” Song

According to Swarnavo Datta: “I have been a fan of the song Hotel California by Eagles since I was a kid. As an adult, I fell in love with the idea of Graphic Novels. So I decided to join them together and visually imagine the song in my own way. This was a series that I ran on my Instagram page. Hope you enjoy it.”

“Hotel California” is the title track from the Eagles’ album of the same name and was released as a single in February 1977. Writing credits for the song are shared by Don Felder (music), Don Henley, and Glenn Frey (lyrics). The Eagles’ original recording of the song features Henley singing the lead vocals and concludes with an extended section of electric guitar interplay between Felder and Joe Walsh.

There’s a rumor that’s been around for some time concerning the song. The basic premise is that the song is about a Christian church that was abandoned (or otherwise vacated) in 1969, and was taken over by an occultic group (usually Satan worshippers). For some unknown reason, it became known as the “Hotel of California”. Further rumors have it that the Eagles are Satan worshippers, and that Satan appears in the window on the “Hotel California” album jacket.
