Three men identified, charged in plot to sell lyrics

New York: Manhattan´s district attorney on Tuesday charged three people with

conspiring to illegally possess and sell some 100 pages of handwritten notes and lyrics for the Eagles album "Hotel California."

Glenn Horowitz, Craig Inciardi and Edward Kosinski allegedly knew the documents

collectively valued at over $1 million -- were stolen, but conspired to sell them anyway.

According to court documents, the men manufactured false provenance and lied to auction houses,

potential buyers and law enforcement about how they acquired

the notes by Don Henley, which included lyrics to the hits "Hotel California" and "Life in the Fast Lane."

A biographer for the band originally stole the manuscripts in the late 1970s, according to the legal filing,

eventually selling them to Horowitz, who in turn sold them to Inciardi and Kosinski.
