(YouTube)   You know that song "Life's Been Good"? Yeah; well, Joe Walsh is really tired of hearing questions about it. So here's his absolute, final, don't-miss-it, never-before, together-again explanation. Pay attention; this will NOT be repeated   (youtube.com) divider line

Here's one of my favorite* things about Joe Walsh: When he talks he sounds as if he just polished off 12-pack of beer. Even though he's been sober for a long time.

* My FAVORITE thing about Joe Walsh is his album covers and titles:

Sensei Can You See: Here's one of my favorite* things about Joe Walsh


Almost forgot: He was in a live Whose Line show in Vegas, and in one scene the cast all had to fire off witty comments when they were pointed. Here was Joe's:

Never forget: If you have some bacon, you can have bacon and eggs. If you have some eggs.

The song seems pretty self-explanatory to me.

You would think, but the part where Keith Moon tutors Joe Walsh on how to create mayhem in hotels is worth a listen, especially the part where a hardware store, a toilet and a condom are all involved.

"One of the most terrifying things that ever happened to me was that Keith Moon decided he liked me."

That was great. Thanks, subby.

His licensed wasn't revoked - he just can't find it.

Genius.

I think he also once said "If I'd have know the song was going to be that popular, I'd have written something else"...

My favourite thing Joe Walsh has done was his stint on the Drew Carey Show as Drew's bandmate Ed. The episode where he first meets Mimi still cracks me up when I think of it.

Ed *staring in confusion at Mimi*
Drew: Oh, Ed, this is Mimi Bobeck.
Ed: Oh thank God, you see it too.

Dr Jack Badofsky: I wonder if Joe likes big tits.


Yes he does!

My wife worked at a strip club in the 90s (didn't perform, waited tables, made bank) and he came in the farking fourth of July. He complimented her rack and asked if she performed. Tipped her a $100 bill which he also signed.

So he felt like this over 8 years ago when this video was done.  I wonder if he feels the same now.


Seriously Mods... 8 years old?

Yep

The lyrics are all things that really happened, at least as best as he can remember.

I don't buy the Maserati going 185.  It has to stay running for 5 minutes first to do that.

/Dad had a Merak in the late 70's.  It was kinda fast.

So did she spend it or keep it?

Keith Moon decided that he and I were going to stay up until the tour was over.

I laughed so hard that my wife came in to make sure I wasn't having a coronary.

CSB- I worked at a ups terminal in KS back in the late 80s- early 90s. An older woman came in to send a package and as I was weighing and ringing it up I saw the name on the package was joe Walsh , somewhere in CA. I jokingly asked her if it was "the" Joe Walsh and she said it was and he was her nephew. And he loved her baking. She would send a care package about one on month or so full of cookies and treats and news from the family-

If you liked that, you will love this. For guitar geeks only. But includes a fine rendition of Indian Summer.

In a parallel universe, Joe Walsh is Keith Richard's guitar tech.

They were V-6s, which was unusual. The standard Merak had 190hp - not bad for the time. The SS version had 220hp IIRC.

220, 221, whatever it takes

He would drop me off to elementary school in it a few times.  Every time I hot out, he would sternly say not to slam the door.  Lol, no matter how softly i closed it, he always told me i was slamming it.  The back seat in that car was literally a 90 degree angle design.  Terrible.

I forget where he said it but it went "I'm a legend in my own socks."
