    Default Joe in the Press/Blogs/etc.

    I found a couple cute references in the press recently about Joe:

    First, this adorable story about an old radio builder who met Joe in the NWANews - here's an excerpt:
    Soon the radios began to stack up, and Vaughan decided to try to sell one on eBay. He put his first one up for $445 but got no bids. Shortly after the auction ended, Vaughan got an e-mail from a main in Studio City, Calif., offering to buy the radio.

    Vaughan and the mystery man exchanged e-mails, and the man asked all about how Vaughan built the machines and how he worked them. In their conversation Vaughan began to trust the man and told him the best way to learn about the hobby would be for him to come and stay a week with Vaughan and his wife. The mystery man said he relished the idea, but he was the lead singer in a band that had a very busy schedule. "He e-mailed me and said he was in a band called The Eagles," Vaughan said with a chuckle. "I didn't know who The Eagles were. I knew who Louie Armstrong was but not The Eagles."

    The man Vaughan had been e-mailing was the famous Joe Walsh. Vaughan finally did convince the music star to come spend a week at his house, and he spent time teaching Walsh how to build the radios. "He went home with a firm resolution to build radios," Vaughan said.

    Surely Joe didn't say he was the 'lead singer' in the Eagles. Lead guitarist, perhaps. Both interesting stories.

    I'm sure Mr Vaughan, someone who didn't know who the Eagles were, could have remembered that part incorrectly.

    It's a perfect occupation for me.

    87-years-YOUNG.....That's a brainfart I could live with and I'm no where near that old...yet <LOL> But that sounds so much like Joe. He really is into HAM gear.

    Shortly after the auction ended, Vaughan got an e-mail from a main in Studio City, Calif., offering to buy the radio.

    Hmmm.....Hope Mr Vaughan didn't get Joe in trouble with eBay! <grin>

    Default Joe Walsh EXECUTED...

    "Joe Walsh Executed To Keep 'Eagles Greatest Hits' Sales Ahead Of 'Thriller'"

    I love the Onion.

    Yeah, I thought it was pretty funny too! One of our clever Borderers even wrote up an article for it since the Onion didn't provide one. Movin' this post over to that thread right now!

    Yesterday on CBS Sunday Morning there was a tribute to Les Paul and Joe was in it! I've tried to find the article, but there's no link to it.

    Here's the link to their page, maybe it will show up later. Under the picture it says "Appreciation-Les Paul"

    http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/1998/...in;contentBody

    Joe talked about Les Paul and showed some of his guitars. Joe looked and sounded great!
