Joe Walsh Talks Eagles Anniversary, James Gang Reunion

He\'s going to be pretty busy for the next couple of years

Walsh revealed last week that his next solo album will be released late year (in February) and it will be called Analog Man. And while you could be forgiven for expecting the album and accompanying tour to be enough work for Walsh to be dealing with in the next year or so, you would be wrong.

In a new interview with Ultimate Classic Rock Walsh has revealed that the Eagles have some fairly ambitious 40th anniversary plans and he is looking to revive the James Gang for live dates AND an album.

About the Eagles he said: "Next year is the 40th anniversary of the Eagles, so we're getting kinda geared up for that. I think we're gonna do kind of a retrospective show. We have thousands of archived films, pictures, recordings, and we're going to pick out some of the album cuts that weren't necessarily the hits, put a sprinkling of those in. We're just gonna celebrate the big 4-0. We're really looking forward to it."

And about the James Gang: "When we played those shows a few years back, we just wanted to reconnect and see how we did, and see if we can still do it. It takes everything you've got to be in a three-piece band. You have a good night and there's nothing like it. You have a bad night and it's pretty ugly. We can do it, we can still do it. We got a couple of gigs under our belt and we were rocking. I think we absolutely should do a tour and maybe record some new stuff. We'll have a look at that next year also."
