Hotel California/ Shining
    #2627066 - 05/01/04 08:50 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

A subject that has been in the back of my mind for some time. I am a Stephen King fan, and enjoy the eagles to some degree. I had read a bio on Stephen once and it had references to the fact he did acid, drink, you name it. Also it said he loved "Eagles" music.

When I listen to "Hotel California" and closely to the lyrics, I wonder if this is what spawned the idea for "The Shining" maybe in a trip state.

Those familiar with the song may add comments. maybe check the dates the book was originally written and compare to the song release date.

Anyway, any feedback is good fun

The dates match up pretty good and im pretty shure King has even done shrooms before because he makes a reference to them in several of his books....I think one was a short story but it might have been LSD i am thinking about....Firestarter was about a LSD type drug that gave the persons who were administered powers to kill with their mind alone
King is by far my favorite author

You think there is a chance, since that song was hot, that it influenced him. I know I read that he had stayed at a place in colorado, or something and thats hwn he came up with it.

If you listen way close to the lyrics, man I bet it has a place.

King attended The University of Maine so i really dont know if Hotel california was an influence or not....He has made numerous references to AC/DC and BOC in a lot of his writings  :cool:

I think the same may be said for Dean Koons, he makes constant references to mushrooms and other drugs in his books.

I remember that short story. The guy is going insane because he loses his wife and job and the highway is going through his house. Probably actually one of my favorite stories. The hitchhiker girl he picks up gives him a drug in a pill. Now I'm really curious what it was.
