Music Around Town

Joe Walsh

When: Wed., Sept. 16, 7:30 p.m. and Fri., Sept. 18 2015

Drummer Joe Vitale and singer-guitarist Joe Walsh both did stints in the Kent-based band the Measles at separate points, but it would be a little while longer before the pair found themselves in a band together, meeting up in Colorado to record the debut Barnstorm album with Vitale on drums and bassist Kenny Passarelli. Released in 1972, the album marked Walsh’s first post-James Gang recordings and launched the next phase of his career. Vitale co-wrote a pair of songs with Walsh on the album and also added additional vocals, percussion and keyboards on the album. The two musicians have continued to collaborate and work on each album that Walsh has done since then. They’re back together again tonight as Walsh launches his first full solo tour in several years tonight with the first of two sold out shows at the Packard Music Hall in Warren. The shows will feature unique setlists that will please both casual fans and the diehards. (Matt Wardlaw)
