Record from a CD: yes.

Remove an instrument: no.

You could find a MIDI file and mute the drums in that....

In the case of Hotel California you could buy the dvd audio version and use the separated outs on your sound system/ or blu ray player.

This usually only works if you're looking for the lead vocal track... and even then it depends on how they mixed it down. (example- Every Breath U Take - The Police.. the center channel is Sting and the snare drum - Ugh!) Still there are some dvd audio discs that have drums in the front l/r channels and none in the rear channels.

Good luck
