LIVE JOE WALSH BROADCAST RECORDING FROM INDEPENDENCE DAY 1990
Following the breakup of the Eagles in July 1980, with whom Joe Walsh had been a member since 1975, he continued to release solo albums throughout the 1980s, but sales did not meet the same level as that of his earlier projects.
If I Was The President (CD)
On Independence Day 1990, Joe was headlining the 8th annual Fountain Valley Fiesta, in Mile Square Park a yearly six day event that culminated on 4th July with fireworks and concerts - he took the opportunity to remind those in attendance of his occasional political career, and indeed his If I Was The President Rap reveals Joe's still somewhat eccentric pledges, ending with the repeated assurance that Life's Been Good would become the National Anthem, before launching into a sterling version of the classic tune.
The set, peppered with much good natured albeit hilarious banter with the radio presenter/MC on the day, is sensibly constructed from a superb selection of JWs best loved numbers, culminating with a Hendrix-esque Star-Spangled Banner - presumably to remind the crowd how much better and more appropriate his own choice of patriotic composition for the USA would be.
