Before Joe Walsh joined up with the superstar rock group, The Eagles, he was part of two other successful rock groups, the James Gang and Barnstorm. Walsh has a defined rock guitar sound, derived by his custom guitars and signature guitar riffs, that has had a huge influence on all the successful groups he has been a part of. And I shouldn’t exclude his naturally high singing voice that compliments his rock songs so well. I want to share a couple songs that he wrote and performed before he joined the Eagles, “Walk Away” with the James Gang and “Rocky Mountain Way” with Barnstorm. I hope you enjoy the videos as much as I did!
Joe Walsh and the James Gang saw a lot of success with the song, “Walk Away.” Check out a vintage performance with the rock trio at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9KK9cVZvg0M&feature=related.
The classic rock song, “Rocky Mountain Way,” has been one of my favorite songs from Joe Walsh for some time. Check out a great video performance of the song with Joe Walsh and Barnstorm at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qF2OP_gFsz4&feature=related.
