The California-based quartet, whose hits include such timeless classics as "Hotel California," "Take It Easy," "Desperado" and "Peaceful Easy Feeling," received the Silver Clef's Lifetime Achievement Award.
Other BMI honorees included Foo Fighters, who picked up the International Award.
The celebrity-packed luncheon also included a charity auction with prizes including a signed Pink Floyd Fender Stratocaster and a VIP trip to the Grammys in Los Angeles. Last year's auction raised more than £700,000 for Nordoff-Robbins.
