About Joe Walsh:
Best known for his powerful guitar licks, multi-GRAMMY award winning singer, songwriter and producer Joe Walsh has entertained the masses and captivated his peers for more than four decades with such classics as “Funk #49,” “Walk Away,” “Life’s Been Good,” “Rocky Mountain Way,” and “Ordinary Average Guy.” In 1969, Walsh found success with The James Gang, followed by a stint with Barnstorm, a trio he founded. In 1973, Walsh released his first solo album, which proved him a legitimate solo act with a limitless career on the horizon. By 1975 he joined The Eagles, bringing a harder rock sound to the group, and made indelible contributions to American pop culture with songs such as “Hotel California” and “Life in the Fast Lane.”
In 1994, after a 14-year hiatus and several solo albums, The Eagles released Hell Freezes Over, which reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts and sparked one of the most successful tours in music history. The Eagles were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, the first year they were nominated. In 2001, Walsh received an Honorary Doctorate from Kent State University and in 2012 the Berklee School of Music gave each of the Eagles Honorary Doctors of Music degrees. Walsh performed at the 2012 Grammy’s with Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen and Dave Grohl and at the 2012 MusiCares event honoring Paul McCartney. That June, Walsh released Analog Man, his first solo album in 20 years, performing solo shows around the world to support it throughout that year.
In 2013, the award winning “The History of The Eagles,” a two part authorized documentary, showcased at Sundance and aired on Showtime that February. In conjunction with the April release onto DVD, the Eagles began their extensive The History of The Eagles World Tour. On February 9, 2014 Walsh was featured in several songs on the CBS Special The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to The Beatles. In 2014, Walsh played select solo shows as well as with the Eagles on The History of The Eagles World Tour, which continued through July of 2015. In Fall 2015, Walsh launched his solo Walsh Toor 2015, and on October 4, 2015 he performed at the UNITE to Face Addiction rally in Washington DC, headlining with friends including Steven Tyler, Sheryl Crow and Jason Isbell.
2016 saw Walsh on the road, including a co-headline arena tour with Bad Company as well as solo Walsh Toor dates. In August 2016, “Citizen Soldier,” was released – a documentary about an Oklahoma National Guard deployed to Afghanistan – to which Walsh wrote original music, and marked the launch of a charity he co-founded, VETS AID.
Recently Walsh performed with Vince Gill, James Taylor, Chris Stapleton and Kacey Musgraves for All For The Hall. October saw Walsh as Grand Marshall for the NASCAR “Citizen Soldier 400” race at Dover Downs. On December 4, Walsh become a Kennedy Center Honor recipient as a member of the Eagles, which was presented by Ringo Starr. Four days later, MoPop gave Walsh “The Founders Award,” also presented by Ringo Starr and Paul Allen. The event included a tribute concert celebrating Walsh’s musical legacy by Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins, Paul Rodgers, Todd Rundgren, Robert Randolph and Kenny Wayne Shepherd. January 2017 saw Walsh back out on the road including tour dates with Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers.
