Three men, including a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame curator, were charged with trying to sell stolen handwritten notes and lyrics by the Eagles‘ co-founder Don Henley.
Curator Craig Inciardi, Glenn Horowitz, and Edward Kosinski have been accused of attempting to sell nearly 100 pages of Henley’s handwritten notes and lyrics from “Hotel California” and “Life in the Fast Lane.”
Henley has been trying to recover the documents for years after they were allegedly stolen in the 1970s by an unnamed biographer, who later pawned them off to Horowitz in 2005. New York officials estimate the stolen documents to be worth over $1 million.
Horowitz allegedly then collaborated with Inciardi and Kosinski, and tried to sell off the documents to various auction houses, including Sotheby’s and Christie’s. The trio also tried to “coerce” Henley into buying back the documents that rightfully belonged to him, officials said.
Each of the men have been charged with one count of conspiracy in the fourth degree, while Horowitz faces a first-degree charge for attempted criminal possession of stolen property and two counts of hindering prosecution.
