I've been listening to Joe Walsh a lot these days.
Joe Walsh, in a word, is awesome.
He just does his thing, no matter what it is. And talk about as perfect as a career as it gets. He's one of a few who really can transition from a guy in a band to a solo artist. Eric Clapton can do that - I'm talking guitar slingers/singers. I know there are a bunch of singers who went from being in a band to being a solo artist. But a double-threat (or a triple-threat in the case of Joe and sometimes Eric) transition? That's a gifted person right there.
