Joseph Fidler Walsh was born in Wichita, Kansas on November 20, 1947. The former James Gang guitarist and singer replaced Bernie Leadon in the Eagles in 1975 and helped steer the band in the harder-edged direction symbolized by “Hotel California” and “Heartache Tonight.” Walsh also enjoyed a solo hit in ’78 with “Life’s Been Good.”

Happy birthday, Joe!

Joe Walsh - Life's Been Good

Track 08 from the 1978 album "But Seriously, Folks..." Because of some recent queries and concerns about the "type" or category of music that this song falls under I have added the tag "classic rock."
