Walsh and his family lived in Columbus, Ohio , for a number of years during his youth. When Walsh was twelve years old, his family moved to New York City. Walsh got his first guitar at the age of 10, and upon learning The Ventures ' " Walk Don't Run ", decided that he wanted to pursue a career as a guitarist.
After high school, Walsh attended Kent State University , where he spent time in various bands playing around the Cleveland area, including the Measles. Walsh majored in English and minored in music; he was present during the Kent State massacre in Walsh commented in "Being at the shootings really affected me profoundly.
I decided that maybe I don't need a degree that bad. Additionally, an instrumental version of "And It's True" was recorded by the Measles, re-titled "Maybe" and released as the B-side of the "Beg Borrow and Steal" single.
Walsh was accepted and the band continued as a five piece for a short time until Phil Giallombardo, who was still in high school at the time, left. Jeric and Walsh worked together on guitar parts but Jeric ended up leaving as well in the spring of He was then replaced by a returning Ronnie Silverman, who had been discharged from the military. At the last minute, Silverman informed the others that he would not join them at the show.
The band, desperately in need of the money, took to the stage as a trio. They liked their sound as a threesome and decided to remain that way. In , the band signed with manager Mark Barger, who was handling the career of fellow Ohio outfit the Lemon Pipers , who had just scored a big hit with " Green Tambourine. They released their debut album, Yer' Album , in In November , bassist Tom Kriss decided he was no longer into the music and left to be replaced by Dale Peters, who was brought in from another group called E.
The addition of Peters created the most successful incarnation of the James Gang. Walsh proved to be the band's star attraction, noted for his innovative rhythm playing and creative guitar riffs.
In particular he was known for hot-wiring the pick-ups on his electric guitars to create his trademark "attack" sound. For the recording of these two songs, vocalist Kenny Weiss was brought in to allow Walsh to focus on his guitar playing; he was gone by the time the group arrived in Mexico to shoot their movie scenes.
Their guitarist Pete Townshend met with the James Gang before they left and was impressed enough to invite them on the Who's subsequent European tour. When Walsh was asked about this he said that, "Pete's a very melodic player and so am I. He told me that he appreciated my playing. I was flattered beyond belief because I didn't think I was that good.
The album James Gang Live at Carnegie Hall was Walsh's last album with them, as he became dissatisfied with the band's limitations. The two remaining members, Peters and Fox, carried on with the lead vocalist Roy Kenner and guitarist Domenic Troiano both ex-members of the Canadian band Bush for two albums, Straight Shooter and Passin' Thru , both released in But in recent interviews, Fox stated that things did not work out musically with Troiano as hoped, so he left the band in and joined the Guess Who.
In December , Walsh left the James Gang. He was invited to move to England and join Humble Pie by Steve Marriott , since Peter Frampton had left the band, but declined his offer. They started recording their debut album immediately after forming, but at the time there were only Walsh and Vitale on these sessions. Chuck Rainey did the first bass tracks on the album but these were soon replaced by Passarelli.
Walsh and Barnstorm released their debut album, the eponymous Barnstorm in October Walsh also experimented with acoustic guitar , slide guitar , effects pedals , fuzzbox , talk box , and keyboards as well as running his guitar straight into a Leslie speaker to get swirly, organ-like guitar tones. The album was a critical success, but had only moderate commercial success.
The follow-up, The Smoker You Drink, the Player You Get , released in June , was marketed under Walsh's name although officially a Barnstorm album and was their commercial breakthrough. It peaked at No. The first and leading single, " Rocky Mountain Way " received heavy airplay and reached No. As a result, a variety of styles are explored on this album. There are elements of blues, jazz, folk, pop, and Caribbean music. In , Barnstorm disbanded and Walsh continued as a solo artist.
There was some initial concern as to Walsh's ability to fit in with the band, as he was considered far too "wild" for The Eagles, especially by their drummer and co-lead vocalist, Don Henley. Released on December 8, , Hotel California was the band's fifth studio album and the first to feature Walsh. The album took a year and a half to complete, a process which, along with touring, drained the band. The second single from the album was the eponymous title track , which topped the charts in May and became one of the Eagles' signature songs next to " Take It Easy " and " Desperado ".
It features Henley on lead vocals, with a guitar duet performed by Felder and Walsh. The hard rock " Life in the Fast Lane " was based on a riff by Walsh. It reached No. Hotel California is the last album to feature founding member Randy Meisner , who abruptly left the band after the tour.
He was replaced by the same musician who had succeeded him in Poco , Timothy B. In , the band, minus Don Felder, performed instrumental work and backing vocals for Randy Newman 's album Little Criminals , including " Short People ," which has backing vocals by Frey and Schmit. The Eagles went into the recording studio in to begin work on their next album, The Long Run.
The album took two years to complete. The Long Run was released on September 24, Considered a disappointment by some music critics for failing to live up to Hotel California, it proved a huge commercial hit nonetheless; the album topped the charts and sold 7 million copies.
