Joe Walsh – Secret Guests in Rock Songs

Richard Marx Joe WalshRichard Marx had already proven himself as a hit songwriter before the release of his 1987 debut. To give himself the best chance of solo success, Marx asked none other than Joe Walsh if he’d play slide guitar on the first single, ‘Don’t Mean Nothing.’

“…And he liked the song. It was just really that simple.” Marx explained in a video commentary. “It says a lot about Joe Walsh that he would come and play on some unknown kid’s records. It was quite an experience, I’ve got photos from that day, and memories of it burned in my mind. He was really a gentleman to me… and of course the solo he plays on it is just genius, it’s perfect.”
