Essential Listening: Joe Walsh

Does anyone not like the guitar playing on Hotel California? I like Joe because he is fun to watch, he has a sense of humor, and he doesn’t seem to take himself too seriously. He seems like the guy next door, the goofy ordinary average guy that can play a mean guitar. I love his phrasing on the solo of Life’s Been Good To Me So Far. He’s never in a hurry. He makes a few notes say a lot. I like his older stuff too such as The Bomber and Funk 49.
