Personalities | Joe Walsh | Seventies | Rock

(Guitar, vocals, b. 1947)

An American guitar hero, Walsh was in the James Gang before making his solo bow with Barnstorm (1972). The Smoker You Drink, The Player You Get (1973) contained the voice-box classic ‘Rocky Mountain Way’. In 1976, Walsh joined The Eagles, replacing Bernie Leadon. Rekindling his own career with 1978’s But Seriously Folks, featuring the self-mocking ‘Life’s Been Good’, he has since continued to record and has participated in Eagles’ reunions.
