Eagles May Reunite With Past Members

(Gibson) Joe Walsh's schedule is about to get really busy. First, he's releasing his first solo album in two decades, the Jeff Lynne-produced Analog Man, on June 5. Then he's preparing for a James Gang reunion trek and the Eagles' 40th anniversary, multimedia concert spectacular.

Walsh recently spoke to Rolling Stone about getting the James Gang back together. "I went back to Cleveland about a month ago and we visited. I don't think we can do a comeback tour or pretend that we can sell out 10,000-seaters. I think we do best in little clubs, like the House of Blues and stuff like that. We agreed that if we do little venues, that we can really knock your socks off as a three-piece. So that's in my bucket list."

The guitarist and singer went on to discuss that working in a power trio can be a tricky exercise, at least for him. "Coming from a huge band in the Eagles and harmonies, and two keyboards and stuff, when I sat down with a drummer and bass player I said, 'Whoa! Boy, do I feel naked!'" he said. "On a good night, there's nothing better than a three-piece band. But on a bad night, there's nothing more horrible..."

Walsh confirmed that the Eagles anniversary tour will take place in 2013 and will feature a chronological set list, lesser-known songs and rare videos. He even suggested that former members Randy Meisner and Bernie Leadon could be involved. more on this story
