A story from the days when Joe "entertained" groupies:
"I had won tickets to see a Joe Walsh concert in L.A. at the Wiltern theatre. Backstage passes were included.

I talked my older friend into driving if I paid for gas.

We were told at the box office that they were no longer going to give us backstage passes. I was bummed. I had brought an album for him to autograph, too.

My friend and I decided after the show to see if we could sneak backstage. A huge guy with a red windbreaker refused to let us back, saying "You don't have a laminate. You're not going backstage."
We watched as two women walked backstage. I said, "They don't have backstage passes." He laughed, as my friend said to me "Those two things on their chest...are backstage passes."
- Excerpt from the San Diego Reader

I'm only vaguely familiar with Otis Taylor, but he has written a song inspired by the death of Emma Walsh.

Excerpt from "Banjo-strumming Otis Taylor plays a different style of blues":

"Lost My Guitar" [from Pentatonic Wars and Love Songs] is a metaphorical lament about the tragic 1974 car-accident that killed Emma K. Walsh, the young daughter of Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh, in Boulder, Colo. Taylor is friends with the girl's mother.

"Whenever I drive by 9th and Spruce, I always go slow because I knew that her daughter died there," he says. "It's always affected my life, that spot."

I don't know how many of you are familiar with The Onion, but it's a joke newspaper with fake headlines and articles that are often HILARIOUS.

Here's one of their headlines today:

Joe Walsh Executed to Keep 'Eagles Greatest Hits' Sales Ahead of 'Thriller'

I want to read this joke article BAD - I'm sure it's a hoot - but it's only in the print section and not available online!

I know it's supposed to be a joke article, but one should not make fun of stuff like that. KWIM

Hear hear. Of course it's funny. It is not meant to be taken seriously in any way.
