Joe Walsh 'Analog Man' Performance: Longtime Eagle Performs First Solo Single In Two Decades (EXCLUSIVE)

Longtime Eagle and altogether rock legend Joe Walsh is back with a performance of "Analog Man," the lead single off his first solo album in two decades.

The performance, which is premiering exclusively on HuffPost Entertainment, can be seen in the video player at the top of this article.

"It's been 20 years and I have a lot to say," Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Walsh said via press release. "These songs come from the heart."

Jeff Lynne -- of Electric Light Orchestra fame -- also makes a guest appearance.

As we reported when the single was released, the track is the rock equivalent of Jay-Z's "Death of Autotune," an anti-digital manipulation screed that features Walsh railing against everything from LCD TV screens to e-mail.

"Welcome to cyberspace, I'm lost in a fog," the 64-year-old sings. "The whole world's living in a digital dream / it's not really there, it's all on the screen."

Walsh has one of the most commercially successful careers in rock and roll, doing stints in not one but three popular bands. The guitarist was a part of the James Gang, Barnstorm, and, of course, the Eagles. On Analog Man, Walsh is joined by Ringo Starr (Walsh's brother-in-law) on drums.

Paul McCartney enlisted Walsh to play guitar at his 2012 Grammy Awards Show performance of "My Valentine," off McCartney's album Kisses on the Bottom. Later in the broadcast, Walsh joined Springsteen and McCartney on stage for a medley performance.

His last solo effort, Songs for a Dying Planet, was released in 1992. "Vote for Me," a single off the album, reached the tenth spot on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart.

The video is not on YouTube, so I can't post it directly here, but if you follow the "Source" link, you can see the full video.

It's good stuff. I always liked Joe Walsh... and this is classic tongue-in-cheek tunage from the man who brought us classics like I.L.B.T.'s and Ordinary Average Guy. He's as good as Zappa... and also has the distinct advantage of still being alive. :wink:

Yep. I know. Straight to hell. :shock:

Yes, and I had the Hotel California album, but that's about it. I did think it was funny a few years back when they were on a country awards program. They were the most country sounding act all night. Everybody else sounded like pop/rock wannabes using fake twangy voices. :lol:

That's about right.

Joe Walsh's stuff was a bit more straight-ahead rock, particularly the James Gang/Barnstorm years. Plus, all his solo albums have great titles. :lol:
