Joe Walsh

For a good ten years Joe Walsh was the epitome of the bloated, addle-brained rock star, enjoying his status as resident stateside guitar god. Coming up with James Gang in the late 1960s, Walsh's searing, sleazy guitar voice made him an instant name in big rock circles. When he left James Gang after two records, he formed Barnstorm (for all intents and purposes the Joe Walsh band) and gained a huge amount of notoriety with the trudging Stoner Rock prototype "Rocky Mountain Way," which even today is enough to take any lame-ass party to the next level of frenzied substance abuse.

It's got all the Joe Walsh trademarks: a stumbling, mid-tempo groove marked by bedrock guitar riffs, too many synthesizers and that yelping, confused delivery.

  • Love for Levon: A Benefit To Save The Barn

    Various Artists

    Year: 2012

    Runtime: 2 hr 40 min

    It only takes about 200 folks to rattle the rafters during one of the Midnight Rambles at Levon Helm's rustic studio in Woodstock, New York. But it took the 20,000-seat Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey, to hold his adoring fans for the LOVE FOR LEVON tribute concert on October 3, 2012. Helm, who died the previous April from throat cancer, organized his first Ramble back in 2004. People flocked to these intimate events Levon hosted, joined by an enviable core of Woodstock-based musicians and special guests. You couldn't beat the intimacy or the vibe. The Izod Center concert served as a fund-raiser and pledge to keep the Rambles alive. Dozens of luminaries from rock, soul, and country-artists as diverse as Roger Waters, Mavis Staples, and My Morning Jacket-gathered to pay their collective respects in an incredible final tribute to Levon Helm. This LOVE FOR LEVON extravaganza features 27 songs capped by a full group finale of The Weight, one of Levon's greatest moments on record. On this magical night, everyone felt the outpouring of love toward Levon. That evening, one at a time, or sometimes in pairs, music royalty took turns in the spotlight, performing songs associated with Levon Helm and the Band.
