Eagles May Sue Rapper

The Eagles might take legal action against Frank Ocean for what group members contend is the rapper's extensive and unauthorized use of the  song Hotel California in a song titled American Wedding.  A spokesperson for Don Henley fired the first round in what could lead to a court case when he issued a statement that read, in part, "Frank Ocean did not merely 'sample' a portion of the Eagles' Hotel California; he took the whole master track, plus the song's existing melody, and replaced the lyrics with his own", but went on to add, "Don Henley has not threatened or instituted any legal action against Frank Ocean, although the Eagles are now considering whether they should."
