The Who once wooed Joe Walsh!
The Who's 1989 25th anniversary reunion tour would've been a lot cooler if Joe Walsh hit the road with them as originally planned. Walsh, who's out on the road now behind his new Top 20 comeback album, Analog Man, shed some light on the offer by old friend Pete Townshend to supply lead guitar on the historic celebratory trek Joe says, "They were real serious. It almost happened. I remember a phone call where Pete (Townshend), and (John) Entwistle, and Roger (Daltrey) were on that end -- and probably Bill Curbishley, their manager. And they asked me if I would seriously do it. They wanted to make sure that I had the right perspective." Joe obviously declined. You can find Joe's video for Analog Man on Todd James blog.
