Joe Walsh wrote a song about the importance of family. Big Jim thought it was appropriate for the Thanksgiving season.
When talking about the song, Joe explained to Billboard magazine in an interview: “Along with Marjorie came an extended family that I married into, and it’s really close and they have each other’s backs. That’s really a dynamic I’ve never been around, and learning to be part of it is an ongoing process. But, like I say, I feel really different, and I look at things differently being in this family, and I feel more complete. The family unit is the foundation of spiritual life and everything good for kids to be around growing up. If a kid’s from a good family, the chances are that at least they have good manners. That’s song is just my experience being in a new family and how much it means to me.”
And a side note, Graham Nash and David Crosby’s vocals can both be heard on this track.
