Joe Walsh is playing the House of Blues in Las Vegas, NV in September.
The dates are Sept. 27 & 29-30
Born in 1947 in Wichita, KS, Joe Walsh grew up primarily in Montclair, NJ. Joe Walsh attended Kent State University where he played in several local bands. Walsh soon dropped out and joined a band by the name of James Gang.
In 1971, Joe Walsh left the James Gang and set out on his own. His band was named Barnstorm. Their best album was The Smoker You Drink, The Player You Get, which peaked at #6 on the US Billboard chart. However, the band broke up the following year
The Eagles came calling in 1975 where Walsh played the guitar, keyboard, and backup vocals. The first album Walsh was one was a little-known album by the name of, Hotel California. It became the band’s best-selling album with over 16 million copies sold. The album also went on to win two Grammy Awards for their singles, “Hotel California” and “New Kid in Town”.
The Eagles broke up in 1980 but reunited in 1995. Walsh experimented with a solo career during those years but did not achieve the same success as in the 70’s. After the death of Glenn Fry, The Eagles obviously have not performed so Walsh is out in support of his solo career once again.
