Joe Walsh will corral some of his country pals and an old rock and roll friend to help celebrate the release of his new solo album ‘Analog Man,’ appearing on a special edition of the popular CMT ‘Crossroads’ series which will premiere on Saturday, June 23.
June 5 will see the release of 'Analog Man,' Joe Walsh's first album since 1992's 'Songs for a Dying Planet.' In a new interview, Walsh said that while touring with the Eagles has taken up a lot of his time, another reason for the delay is the result of quitting drinking in 1994.
Joe Walsh has been a good friend to country music over the last five years, frequently appearing on tracks from artists like Kenny Chesney and Kix Brooks, and jamming with Brad Paisley at award ceremonies. Now Nashville is returning the favor, helping Walsh cut his first country single.
‘Analog Man,' the first solo album in 20 years from Joe Walsh, has points of nostalgia as you might expect, but there is perhaps no moment more directly wired to the past than ‘Funk 50.’ Coming in at just a shade under the two minute mark, the blitzing guitar rocker bares more than just a passing resemblance to its famous cousin, ‘Funk #49’ by the James Gang.
During a conversation with Ultimate Classic Rock, Walsh revealed that the expanded edition will have two bonus tracks, one of which is a previously unreleased jam featuring Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Little Richard paired with Walsh's old Northeast Ohio rock outfit, The James Gang.
Metal veterans Godsmack have released a brand-new version of Joe Walsh's classic anthem 'Rocky Mountain Way.' The song will be included as a bonus track on their upcoming live album, 'Live & Inspired,' which will feature in-concert versions of nine of their own tunes as well as four covers.
Bruce Springsteen's been opening up his recent shows with the bold declaration that he's "the hardest-working white man in show business," but Joe Walsh may have him beat. A string of solo tour dates throughout May and the summer are just the late
The James Gang were huge in their hometown of Cleveland, but in some circles still might be best known as being the first major band of future Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh. (Other notable James Gang members at various points included Deep Purple guitarist Tommy Bolin and Donnie Iris & The Cruisers/Wild Cherry member Mark Avsec.)
