Plus an update on a new Eagles album...
Joe Walsh, member of the legendary Eagles, recently spoke with Billboard at the MAP MusiCares benefit honoring Ozzy Osbourne in Los Angeles about his work with the Foo Fighters on a new song, a potential Eagles album and more. Check out the highlights:
On how long he's been friends with Ozzy: "Neither of us really know for sure, but we have been able to determine that it was sometime last century. James Gang and Sabbath we played a lot of shows together...Believe it or not Ozzy remembers more than I do."
On occasional run-ins with Ozzy: "We played the same concerts. In those days you had like three bands, any of them could really headline. So I saw a lot of Ozzy backstage, we didn't get a chance to hang out that much because we were both working. But that's probably a good thing because we probably wouldn't be here if we had."
On what he's been up to lately: "I've been playing on other people's stuff. I was a Foo Fighter for two days, I joined the Foo Fighters for two days and I played on a track of theirs that's gonna come out. I played on a War song, I love War. They sent me a song and I put guitar on that, so I'm a low rider and a Foo Fighter."
On how the Foo Fighter collaboration happened: "I know them, my drummer when I play solo, Drew Hester, is a great friend of all of those guys, so I hooked up through him."
On a potential Eagles album: "We've got some stuff in the can."
