    HAPPY 25TH ANNIVERSARY ORDINARY AVERAGE GUY!!!

    Wow! Another milestone for another Eagles-related album. They just keep coming, don't they?

    I love the title track on this album, but, overall, I have to say that I'm one that prefers Joe's '80's albums over the ones in the '90's.

    Happy 25th to "Ordinary Average Guy"!!! My Dad still has this and I remember when he first got it, which I would've been around 5, and I loved the lyrics to the title track. LOL My brother and I would crack up every time my Dad played it, and also because my Dad said it described him and his friends.

    OAG get's a bit of recognition at the Ultimate Classic Rock website; http://ultimateclassicrock.com/joe-w...y-average-guy/.

    I can remember buying that Wilson Phillips LP, and The Simpsons Sing The Blues. It was a bad time to be a Walsh fan. Richard Marx is pretty good though.

    I played those 80s and 90s Walsh albums, Over And Over again, for months on end, in the hope that I'd get to like them more. The 70s albums, I was hooked after a couple of listens.

    Here's an emaciated and probably, inebriated Joe performing Two Sides To Every Story in 1991. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FsYBcxCCDoY

    It's a tough song to sing, even without the harmonica duties, Joe Vitale helps out a little bit, I think they shoulda made it into a full blown duet, It looks like Al Kooper helping out on guitar and "wardrobe malfunction"

    I was actually looking for the tv performance where Joe's guitar jack becomes detached from his guitar and the show band play their own version of the song. Joe really was a mess at the time!

    Happy 26th Birthday to Ordinary Average Guy.

    I love the title track. I used to hate the video to OAG, but it has grown on me.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother.

    The title track cracks me up - gotta love Joe's ironic sense of humor.

    I'm still not a huge fan of the video... but the song makes me laugh.
