Joe Walsh: an unheralded rock legend

24 01 2012

Maybe I give the place too much credit by talking about it, but what the heck.  A guy that needs to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his work outside his most famous group, the Eagles, is Joe Walsh.  Joe Rocks.  Of course, his talent has been recognized since he was an important addition to one of the biggest selling rock bands of all time.   His solo work, or stuff with the James Gang, is, in my ever so humble opinion, vastly more interesting than the Eagles’ music.  It surely rocks harder.

Joe’s also one of the most entertaining guys in rock history.  He’s a great interview; completely hysterical.  It’s impossible not to like him after hearing him for a few minutes doing a radio interview.  Although he’s been clean and sober for years, he still sounds drunk (but makes more sense than a drinker.)

One of my favorite from Joe’s catalog
