Rock Hall Curator Allegedly Tried to Sell Stolen Eagles Lyrics

A few gentlemen, which include a curator for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, have been indicted for allegedly seeking to market stolen handwritten lyrics by Eagles co-founder Don Henley valued at over $1 million.

According to courtroom paperwork, virtually 100 webpages of Henley’s notes, including lyrics to “Hotel California” and “Life in the Rapid Lane,” had been stolen in the late 1970s by an author employed to create a biography of the band.

Craig Inciardi, Glenn Horowitz and Edward Kosinski are accused of conspiring to promote Henley’s web pages by auction homes, even however they understood the merchandise were stolen.

Rolling Stone notes that it was Horowitz who acquired the Eagles files in 2005. He then allegedly recruited Inciardi and Kosinski in an energy to “sell off the paperwork to different auction residences, as properly as striving to ‘coerce’ Henley into getting back the property that rightfully belonged to him.”

Inciardi is the curator and director of acquisitions at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. He earlier labored for the auction dwelling Sotheby’s just before signing up for the Hall’s personnel.

All three males have been billed with conspiracy in the fourth degree, which carries up to a four-calendar year jail sentence. Inciardi and Kosinski were being also charged with prison possession, whilst Horowitz was billed with attempted criminal possession of stolen assets and two counts of hindering prosecution. All three guys pleaded not guilty.

“The DA’s business alleges criminality the place none exists and unfairly tarnishes the reputations of effectively-highly regarded industry experts,” the defendants’ lawyers claimed through assertion. “We will struggle these unjustified expenses vigorously. These guys are innocent.”

In the meantime, Eagles manager Irving Azoff told Rolling Stone the indictments expose “the truth about new music memorabilia revenue of remarkably individual, stolen items hidden behind a facade of legitimacy.”

“No a single has the right to sell illegally obtained assets or gain from the outright theft of irreplaceable items of musical record,” he continued. “These handwritten lyrics are an integral aspect of the legacy Don Henley has designed more than the course of his 50-additionally-year occupation.”
