(hennemusic) Joe Walsh performed his 1973 classic, "Rocky Mountain Way", with The Basic Cable Band on TBS' late night show Conan on September 26 and video from the show has been posted online.

"I was mowing the lawn in Boulder, CO," said Walsh of the lyrical inspiration for the tune, written after his departure from The James Gang. "I looked up and saw the mountains and the back range and I thought 'this is better than the way I had.'

"And I got the words; I mean all at once. I ran in the house to write the words down, but the lawnmower kept going over into the neighbour lady's garden. It was an expensive song to write."

The performance followed an extensive interview that saw the Eagles guitarist share a story of trashing a penthouse hotel room with actor John Belushi back in the70s, a feat that cost him $23,000.

"My job," said Walsh, "was to get across the state line before the maid saw the room." The guitarist was on hand to promote his involvement in writing a song for the new film "Citizen Soldier", which documents a group of soldiers in the Oklahoma Army National Guard's 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team - known since World War II as the "Thunderbirds" - and their life-changing tour of duty in Afghanistan.
