New Retro Album From Joe Walsh For 2012!

Eagle's guitarist, Joe Walsh, will release a new solo album entitled, Analog Man sometime in late 2012.

Walsh told Ultimate Classic Rock magazine that the title comes from the fact that his generation hasn't exactly embraced the digital age.

Walsh explains, "I know in the past, I've had screwy album titles, but I decided to call it 'Analog Man.' Because, you know, my generation of musicians, we grew up analog, and now it's a digital world. We had to learn it, you know? Everything's totally different. There's no record companies who knew that would happen? They were so powerful when I was young!"

Although the album has a retro title Walsh revealed, "This is my first real experience doing my music digitally. In the old days, there was more of a tendency to set up the band, mic everything, record the whole band together and when you got a good take, that was it. You couldn't go in and make everything perfect. Nowadays, music is constructed. Musicians come in and play their part, and you put them on one at a time."

On attempting the new material live Walsh says, "We're working it up now, it's kind of complex. I've never played it live, so I'm learning it right along with the band. Just cause you can write 'em doesn't mean you can play 'em!"
