Have you heard the new album, Analog Man? It sounds like he's finally gotten himself to a good place.

@Picker - Sounds a bit Tom-Petty-ish. Would love to see him get back to the James Gang sound.

Saw them live with ZZ Top on their first national tour at a skating rink in Bricktown NJ, waaaaay back when. I think the Youngbloods opened for James Gang, and ZZ was the headliner. In any case after the concert the cops stopped my hippy filled van and searched it. My friend Jeff put a tape in the 8 track and turned it all the way up, and in the confusion he disappeared. After a half hour (and they found nothing, because Jeff took it with him)) I started to drive home and lo and behold about a half mile down the road there was Jeff. stepping out of the woods. Pretty slick of him and I am still amazed to this day how he pulled that off.

Later on I was working as a tile setter at the Anheuser Busch plant in Jacksonville Florida and one of my co workers was the manager of that skating rink and remembered that concert.

You ARE talkin' WAY back, DBM! Saw them first at Detroit's Grande Ballroom opening for MC5, who were opening for THREE DOG NIGHT of all people. If you Wikify the James Gang, you'll discover they used to be up to five members, then four, and by the time they were slotted to open for CREAM at the Grande, their other guitarist decided not to join them, and they stayed a trio. They also had a regular turnover of members that rivals MENUDO.

When I saw them, we had NO idea of the name of that dude who was burning up the fretboard of that fine looking Les Paul Goldtop, who also put up a version of "Jeff's Boogie" that even put JEFF BECK'S effort to shame!

They were the first ( and only) band we ever saw which placed the drummer on an even line with the bass and guitarist, rather than on a riser BEHIND them.

When Walsh went solo, his association with the James Gang made him a huge seller in Detroit, And he's gained momentum ever since.

Pretty sure Funk #49 was on the soundtrack to Easy Rider, which I got through one of those record club deals. I still think to this day that it`s an amazing album.

My wife used to see them, James Gang, play at a place called JB's at Kent State. She said they would open for a band named The Glass Harp.
Direct TV does these session things from Guitar Center in Hollywood and they recently did one one with Joe Walsh. It was pretty good. They show the replay once in awhile.

I believe in this concept and have done it before many times. Not famous enough for you to have ever seen it, but I know what you are saying is a great concept to experiment with. Maybe not for the sound stage guys but I like making the drummer a part of the line-up especially in a 4-piece. Some of the pedestal stuff is to highlight the drummer (check out Buddy Rich and other band vids on Youtube for examples). Many casinos and clubs put a see through barrier in front of the drummer and still mic them as the smaller venues bar-side need less bass and vibrations in the ears of the up-close patrons...

I love watching Joe play. He looks like he's actually having fun, not taking himself so seriously!

Ever hear an interview with him? It a lot of the same.

One of my most powerful childhood "subliminal" influences. i.e. it was playing in the car ALL the time and I couldn't escape it. I wanted to do anything but this, but it's in there anyway! Now when I hear him on the radio, it gets cranked and I imagine I'm riding on a bench seat in a 68 GTO without a lap belt...

I really enjoyed that Eagles documentary recently. I never knew he had such substance problems. I always thought the lyrics were supposed to be funny, not real! :-)

I love the blues piece before Funk 49 from that concert.

For being a renowned drinker he has managed to be one of the most precise performing musicians in rock & roll.

BTW, James Gang wasn't on the Easy Rider soundtrack.

One of my all-time fave Eagles tunes. His sense of humor shines through all his stuff, and I LOVE musicians with a sense of humor. (Weezer, for example, would never have made it onto my radar were it not for this reality)

I don't believe "Life's Been Good To Me So Far" is an Eagles tune. But I know what you mean.

I also know what you mean about Weezer. I caught on to them while radio surfing and heard "Undun( The Sweater Song)".

Another song Griff that I love by the Eagles is I Can't Tell You Why. Before I saw them do the song I swore it was a chick singer. I didn't know it was the bass player. What a beautiful voice. They all had a little something different to add on their great lead vocals and they all had even more to add on the harmonies when they put them all together...

Hey Griff "Life's Been Good" is a Joe Walsh song. It's off of his "But Seriously Folks" album.
