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!
