Some forget that, for all of his Hall of Fame successes with the Eagles, Joe Walsh joined that band as a bonafide star. At the turn of the '70s, Walsh led the James Gang through a trio of studio recordings highlighted by the ageless 'Funk #49," then embarked on a solo career also included the 1973 Top 40 hit 'Rocky Mountain Way.' Walsh continued releasing solo projects after the Eagles' 1980 breakup. Struggles with alcohol ensued, but Walsh cleaned up in time for a long-awaited Eagles reunion in the '90s -- and then jump started his solo career again with 2012's 'Analog Man,' his first solo album in two decades.
