SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Joe Walsh has had songs bubbling up inside him for years, but the veteran rocker just hadn't had the time for a solo project since reuniting with the Eagles for "Hell Freezes Over" in 1994.
But a recent break by the iconic band has allowed Walsh to release "Analog Man," his first new album in 20 years.
And the 64-year-old Walsh will share both his new works and classics Saturday night during his headline performance capping the three-day Sioux Falls JazzFest.
The guitarist is known for his signature licks on such hits as "Rocky Mountain Way" and his expressive faces during those riffs.
He says he'll mix in some old James Gang, Eagles and solo tunes during the performance while taking some detours for improvisation and freeform.
