Joe is live on I Heart Radio right now answering questions. Some Fastlane visitors had the opportunity to talk with Joe. Here's what Monstertone found out about Joe's new album:
I just spoke with Joe Walsh! I asked him about his new solo album
coming up, and the specifically about the arrangements...I wanted to
hear some songs centered around the acoustic guitar...like Indian
Summer, Collage, etc.
He said the album is done and in the
can...and the overall process is 4/5ths done. He isn't sure when it
will be out 'cause he's an eagle right now. But my impression is that
He said working with Jeff Lynne was a total challenge
(in a good way). It really forced him to challenge himself....he
really likes the results! Said they were two old timers set in their
ways, and it took a while to figure out how to work together.
mentioned that my daughter was mad 'cause I made her go to school today
and miss hearing his call. He told her thanks for being a fan and to
"grow up good."
Joe was very down to earth, and the whole thing
was pretty quick. It was, afterall, a business call recorded for the
Eagles radio show. Still, it was pretty cool.
Rolling Stone magazine asked Don for comments regarding his legal victory over Chuck Devore earlier this month. As expected, Don is still pretty down on YouTube, but he certainly knows his copyright law!
If it's Monday that must mean there's another tour date........wouldn't it be great if they announced these all at once? Anyway, the band will be in State College, PA, at the Bryce Jordan Center on October 22nd. Tickets on sale August 30th.
ETA: Thanks Steve for the heads-up.....the band will be in Lubbock, TX, at the United Spirit Arena on October 5th.
