Go ahead and confess it: You forgot this Joe Walsh '80s classic



While Joe Walsh’s greatest achievement might be his role in taking The Eagles from its country-flavored sound to a harder rock n roll sound, his ‘80s resume is packed with music, movies and much more.

Joe started off the ‘80s with a mock presidential run with the platform of Free Gas For Everyone and a brief appearance as a prisoner in The Blues Brothers.

In the ‘80s, Walsh put out four solo albums and in 1985 released the epic track The Confessor that was a Top 10 hit on the Mainstream Rock charts. The non-structured song is slow-building, but by the 3:30 mark The Confessor has worked its way into wailing guitar frenzy.

In 1987, Walsh showed why Rolling Stone named him one of the Top 100 rock guitarists with his recognizable slide guitar solo on Richard Marx’s Don’t Mean Nothing. In 2012, Joe released his latest album Analog Man and is currently touring across North America with The Eagles.
