He releases nice cover versions of many rock and roll classics, the most recent one is from James Gang’s classic “Walk Away”.

Read what he said about the version:

“Oh, I love Cleveland! Home of so many rock legends. I spent the day at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and hung out with rock luminary David Spero. He introduced me to Nate Jones and we jammed on some James Gang before my show at the House of Blues Cleveland”.

The song

Walk Away comes from James Gang’s third studio album “Thirds” (1971). It was the last studio to feature Joe Walsh before he went to a successful solo career and with The Eagles. The track was released as a single and went to the Top 40 on at least one national chart, reaching #51 on the Billboard Hot 100, the best placement of a James Gang single.

The guitarist is credited with “guitar, vocals and train wreck” on the song.
