132. Joe Walsh

Maybe the Eagle with the highest “Rock credibility”, Joe Walsh was a brilliant guitar player with an under appreciated sense of introspection with his music. As such, he was the most relatable of the Eagles and an informal poll of Eagles fans would likely result in Joe Walsh being the favorite. Already in as a member of the Eagles, it is unlikely that Walsh will go in a second time.

Joe Walsh has been scattered over so many areas that it's hard to pull together his career into a definitive picture. As noted, he's best-known for the Eagles, but he started as the driving force in James Gang (not just "Funk #49 and "Walk Away" but "Midnight Man" and "The Ashes, the Rain and I" too) before forming the underrated/o verlooked Barnstorm (not just "Rocky Mountain Way" but "Turn to Stone" and "Mother Says" too).

During and after his stint in the Eagles, he pursued a long and ultimately not illustrious solo career though he had intermittent successes that included a couple of fine songs from film soundtracks, "All Night Long" (Urban Cowboy) and especially "In the City" (The Warriors).

At least he kept both his sense of perspective and his sense of humor through it all, with the hit "Life's Been Good" and also the wry "I Can Play That Rock 'n' Roll."
