So many major guitar players have stories about being gifted some rare or special guitar by Joe Walsh.

There's a tale of a particular Les Paul that Johnny Marr used live a lot that he got from Pete Townshend who got from Joe Walsh. Apparently Noel Gallagher currently owns it.

I saw Joe Walsh once by accident in a surprising situation and he totally won me over. More later.

xp I pity that Les Paul, suffering a continual ownership downgrade over the years (j/k, lol).

Joe Walsh's twitter feed is an amalgamation of "people who have figured out how to live" and "unlikeliest celebrity photos."
This is true. Thanks.

the jimmy page story vacillates between the LP he was gifted or bought . Cool either way to think of these guys hanging out in 1970 or whenever.

one month passes...

It is not the best quality video or audio, but I thought Joe Walsh's set at the US Festival 1983 was pretty good. I like the horn setup and 2 backing vocalist setup, as since Joe doesn't also add a second guitarist of a keyboard player, there is some room to use the arrangements. The proto-Miami Vice version of 'Life in the Fast Lane' is cool to hear Joe do the verses and the backing singers the chorus.
Throwing in the Dylan nugget 'Rainy Day Women #12 & 35' between 'Rocky Mountain Way' and 'Lifes Been Good' is fun.

A lot of Barnstorm is not what you think it's going to be
