Best known for his powerful guitar licks, Joe Walsh has entertained the masses and his peers for more than three decades. Don’t miss Walsh in Silver Legacy’s Grande Exposition Hall on Friday September 28 at 8pm.
With such classics as “Funk #49,” “Walk Away,” “Life’s Been Good” and “Ordinary Average Guy,” Walsh has experienced success as a solo artist and prolific session musician. In 1969, Walsh found fame and 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 1976 he joined The Eagles, bringing a harder rock sound to the group with the acclaimed Hotel California, The Long Run and Eagles Live.
In 1994, after a fourteen year hiatus and several solo albums, The Eagles released Hell Freezes Over, which reached # 1 on the Billboard charts and sparked one of the most successful tours in music history. And in 1989, The Eagles were voted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame, the first year they were nominated. Walsh performed at the 2012 Grammy’s with Paul McCartney, Bruce Springfield and Dave Grohl and a 2012 MusiCares event honoring Paul McCartney.
This summer, Walsh will release Analog Man, his first solo album in twenty years and will tour in support of the new record throughout 2012, both in the U.S. and abroad. Join Silver Legacy in welcoming Joe Walsh to the Grande Exposition Hall on September 28 at 8pm.
