Best known for his powerful guitar licks the legendary Joe Walsh maintains a legion of fans around the world with huge success over the past four decades as a bona fide solo artist, and as a member of the Eagles and James Gang.

On his most recent solo ‘Walsh Toor,” Joe has said his current band is “the best band I’ve played with in a long time” and Walsh is clearly at the top of his game, his playing is transcendent and he is more comfortable than ever as a performer. His shows spotlight songs from throughout his career and pack in his hits alongside fan favorites like “Turn To Stone,” “Mothers Says” and “The Bomber.” A recent review in the Charleston Gazette Mail touted, “..what a privilege it is to see a rock and roll great like Joe Walsh in such an intimate setting….a well spent and memorable evening” and Nepa Scene raved, “Joe Walsh jokes and shreds – there is always a good bit of comedy at a Joe Walsh concert but don’t let that fool you – when it comes to playing guitar, he’s dead serious and he’s a monster.” This will be a show Las Vegas fans won’t want to miss.

Today is an important day - because we honor our Veterans. I want to thank all the men and women who have fought for this country, for our freedom. We are still at war, we are still sending our men and women into combat and its not being talked about. That is not ok with me. Some of our soldiers pay the ultimate price and don't make it back.
The ones that do are missing limbs or emotionally shattered or both. Many are not getting the help that they need. I support our vets and I want them to know I appreciate and sincerely care about them. This is going to be something I focus on in 2017.
Legendary musician Joe Walsh will serve as the grand marshal for the “Citizen Soldier 400” NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Dover International Speedway on Sunday, Oct. 2, track officials announced today.
The Grammy Award-winning 1998 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee has a career spanning four decades as a successful solo artist and a member of the Eagles, Barnstorm and James Gang. Walsh wrote “No Man’s Land,” an original song for the film “Citizen Soldier.”
Joining Walsh as dignitaries for the “Citizen Soldier 400” are:
-- Honorary Pace Car Driver: Retired Maj. Gen Gus Hargett, the chief executive officer of the National Guard Association of the United States.
-- Honorary Starter: Retired Staff Sgt. Colt Floyd of the Oklahoma National Guard. Floyd was deployed to Afghanistan in 2011.
-- Welcoming Remarks: Bert Bedrosian, “Citizen Soldier” producer and partner at Strong Eagle Media.
In addition, country music star Easton Corbin will sing the national anthem prior to the race and the traditional military flyover will be conducted by two F-16s from the 149th Fighter Wing of the Texas Air National Guard.
“Citizen Soldier” is a feature film that follows an Oklahoma National Guard unit during its deployment to Afghanistan. Produced by Strong Eagle Media and distributed by Gravitas Ventures and Broad Green Pictures, the film is a modern day “Band of Brothers” and documents the Oklahoma Army National Guard’s 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team 2011 deployment.
“We’re thrilled that Joe Walsh, a rock and roll legend, will be a key part of our NASCAR weekend,” said Mike Tatoian, Dover International Speedway’s president and CEO. “His contributions for the film ‘Citizen Soldier,’ and his support for our active and retired men and women in the military and their families is a testament to who he is today.”
The “Citizen Soldier 400” NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race is the centerpiece of the Sept. 30-Oct. 2 NASCAR tripleheader weekend at the Monster Mile. Dover International Speedway is also hosting the “Drive Sober 200” presented by the Delaware Office of Highway Safety NASCAR XFINITY Series race on Saturday, Oct. 1, and the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race on Friday, Sept. 30.

"No Man's Land" is a piece of music I wrote for a documentary called Citizen Soldier.
Basically a Unit of the Oklahoma National Guard was called-up for duty in Afghanistan, with no warning or preparation. This is their story- thru their eyes taken with their own Go-Pro video cameras.
They were placed deep into enemy territory - in "Harm's Way", fought heroically, and not all of them made it home.
The documentary is profound and affected me so deeply - I decided to be involved and wrote music for it.
This is a forgotten war that continues as I write this text.
Everyday our soldiers are killed or gravely wounded.
The surviving troops are coming home broken and shattered.
They need help.
Please watch the documentary.
CITIZEN SOLDIER is a dramatic feature film, told from the point of view of a group of Soldiers in the Oklahoma Army National Guard’s 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, known since World War II as the “Thunderbirds.” Set in one of the most dangerous parts of Afghanistan at the height of the surge, it is a heart-pounding, heartfelt grunts’ eye-view of the war. Citizen Soldier will be released this August.
