• Biography

Joe Walsh is known as an American singer, guitarist, and songwriter. He is most famous for being in legendary bands like the Eagles.



Joseph Fidler Walsh was born on November 20, 1947 in Wichita, Kansas. During his childhood he lived in Columbus, Ohio and after that later New York City and Montclair, New Jersey. He went to school at Ohio's Kent State University, where he joined a band called the James Gang in 1968. Around then, the James Gang comprised of Walsh on guitar and vocals, Jim Fox on drums, and Tom Kriss on bass in a power trio structure.


As a solo artist, Joe Walsh released a live album collection called You Can't Argue with a Sick Mind in 1976, yet at that point he was burnt out on working alone and was searching for a band to join. He discovered it in the Eagles, who had quite recently lost their guitarist Bernie Leadon to creative contrasts. Once ready, he helped the Eagles make their most well known album collection Hotel California which was released soon thereafter. Including a more rock edge to the Eagles in the spot of Leadon's more country enhanced style, his commitments to the guitar work of the title track and the popular riffs of Life in the Fast Lane are particularly popular.

In June 2019, he released a song with pop star, Sheryl Crow.

Personal Life


One of Walsh's songs was inspired by his move to Colorado with his wife Stephanie and little kid Emma Kristen. Sadly, Emma was killed in an auto collision in 1974 while on her drive to nursery school. He had a little water fountain created in her memory in her favorite park in Boulder.

In the eighties, Walsh got married a third time and fathered a little girl, Lucy, who has entered the music business herself as a singer. After that marriage fizzled, he was involved with Stevie Nicks for a short period. Stevie wrote "Has Anyone Ever Written Anything for You" to dedicate to Walsh. Walsh married a fourth time to a woman named Denise. Even though the marriage ended, she gave him two children.

Even with the busy timetable of the Eagles, Walsh discovered time for tasks of his own. In 2006, his old band the James Gang rejoined for a short tour. Walsh also directed a short solo tour in 2007. On a personal note, he married his present spouse Marjorie Bac. She is the sister-in-law to Ringo Starr
