Eagles Guitarist Joe Walsh Reveals Reason for Calling New Solo Album, ‘Analog Man’

Joe Walsh has a history of coming up with tongue-in-cheek titles for his solo albums. Some of those albums include ‘You Can’t Argue with a Sick Mind,’ ‘Got Any Gum?,’ and, of course, ‘You Bought It — You Name It.’ But for his upcoming release, which should release in the winter of 2012, Walsh decided on a more reflective name: ‘Analog Man.’

New Van Halen Album Now Rumored for Early 2012

For fans of Van Halen‘s original lineup, the band’s last three decades or so have been punctuated with more than a few frustrations and disappointments, including their brief reunion with David Lee Roth in 1996, bassist Michael Anthony’s rudely handled dismissal, and an overall lack of new music since a pair of new tracks were appended to the double-disc ‘Best of Both Worlds’ compilation way back in 2004.

Roth has been back in the band since 2006, with rumors of a new album persistently surfacing over the last five years. The buzz has grown louder than ever this year, and for awhile, it looked like this might finally be the year Van Halen came back — but it looks like we’ll have to keep on waiting.

Uncle Kracker Says His New Album, ‘Postcards from Home,’ Is ‘Super Fun’

With his last album, 2009′s ‘Happy Hour,’ Uncle Kracker scored his first country hit — the top 10 track ‘Smile’ — so conventional wisdom would dictate that he’d continue courting a country audience with his upcoming release, ‘Postcards from Home.’

But then again, his career has never been conventional — and as he told Billboard during a recent interview, he doesn’t see any reason to start now.
