“Analog Man” Joe Walsh Rails Against Digital Age and Longs for Vinyl Records

MAR 21 – Guitarist Joe Walsh from the James Gang and Eagles fame has put out a new solo track, his first one in 20 years. The new song "Analog Man" wonders if in this digital age we might be disconnected from one another, and asks is it all real? Joe also longs for the day of reel-to-reel analog tape and vinyl records, and worries that we might have become slaves to our electronic appliances, and wonders if our new HiDef TVs with fiber optic cable are raising our kids. The album, titled "Analog Man' will be out June 5, listen to the track and read a review over at UltimateClassicRock.com.   (photo credit Alexander Visual/Flickr)
