Joe Walsh to Appear on ‘Live From Daryl’s House’
Daryl Hall has been inviting an eclectic crew of musical guests into his home in upstate New York since 2007 to join him for his free monthly web-to-cable series ‘Live from Daryl’s House.’ Inching in on a huge milestone for the show, today (Nov. 15) marks the 60th episode and Hall will celebrate in smashing fashion with a visit from legendary Eagles and James Gang guitarist Joe Walsh.
In each episode of ‘Live From Daryl’s House’ fans tune in to see Hall and his musical guest play a mix of the artist’s original music, songs from Hall’s own expansive career and chat about their lives over dinner. In this special episode Walsh episode Hall and Walsh jam on classic tunes like ‘Rocky Mountain Way,’ the Walsh hit ‘Life’s Been Good’ from his 1978 solo disc ‘But Seriously, Folks’ and ‘Funk 49/50’ from the James Gang days. From Hall’s repertoire the two legends rip out ‘Somebody to Love’ and ‘Wrong Side of History.’
In addition to the music, throughout the episode the two talk about their respect for one another, the evolution of music, and the story behind Walsh’s first guitar after trading in trombone and clarinet. “I stumbled across the guitar, because I needed something I could play that wasn’t in my mouth, and that I could write music on,” Walsh told Hall. “I was never going to get any girls playing clarinet. Not that I got any playing guitar, but it was a lot more fun.”
Walsh also talked about finally getting a chance to hang out with Hall. “He’s been a favorite of mine for a long time,” Walsh explained. “And I finally wound up on the East Coast with enough time to get up to Daryl’s and represent. It was great to finally play some music with him. The band’s great, the production crew’s great, and I totally support the home-grown concept. Hope everybody enjoys the show as much as I did.”
