Joe Walsh Caricature 1974


Joe Walsh Caricature 1974, shown here, age 27, from his third solo studio album cover “So What”, released on December 14, 1974.

Walsh is an American singer, guitarist and songwriter. Born in Wichita, Kansas and at an early age, his family moved to Columbus, Ohio. While attending Kent State University, in 1965, Walsh formed a band called “The Measles”. This band would morph into the “James Gang”.
In May 1968 the James Gang played a concert in Detroit at the Grande Ballroom opening for Cream. The James Gang would soon launch the popularity of Walsh. The band broke up in 1971, when Walsh went solo.

The album “So What” would solidify Walsh’s popularity in main-stream rock and roll.
It contains hard rock songs such as “Welcome To The Club” and a remake of “Turn To Stone” from his debut album “Barnstorm”. It also contains more introspective material such as “Help Me Through the Night” and “Song For Emma”, a tribute to Walsh’s three year old daughter who had been killed in a car accident when a drunk driver hit the Porsche driven by his girlfiend with Emma in the car the previous year.

Don Henley wrote the lyrics for “Falling Down” with Henley providing backing vocals and “Falling Down” and “Time Out”. The album features three of the four members of Eagles; Don Henley, Glenn Frey and Randy Meisner providing backing vocals for “Turn to Stone” and “Help Me Through The Night”. This would be the first time that the band members would appear on an album with the future Eagle. Walsh would join the Eagles a year and a half later on their Hotel California album.

Musicians on the album were: Joe Vitale and Russ Kunkel on drums, Kenny Passarelli on bass and vocal backups from Dan Fogelberg, J.D. Souther along with Glenn Frey, Randy Meisner and Don Henley.

Bill Szymczyk produced and engineered the tracks. Album Design: Jimmy Wachtel (brother of Waddy Wachtel, famous session guitarist).
