LATEST: Rock legends the EAGLES gave America's new presidential hopeful GENERAL WESLEY CLARK the seal of approval by performing at his inauguration ceremony at the weekend (15NOV03).

Details of the exclusive $2,000 (GBP1,176)-a-head political fundraiser at MORTON'S in Beverly Hills, California, have been kept under wraps but it has been confirmed the Hotel California rockers provided the entertainment.

Their longtime manager Irving Azoff was one of the organisers of the event, which drew a starry crowd including top Hollywood couples Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez and Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen.

Thrilled Clark told the revellers, "This is the kind of music I grew up loving."
