    Default Lucy Walsh

    I thought that Joe fans might like to know that his daughter Lucy has been busy.

    Here is her myspace: http://www.myspace.com/lucywalsh

    As you can see, you can download her single 'So Uncool' on iTunes now. Give it a listen, I think it's quite good.

    And today the song has received a review in Billboard:

    'Forget that Lucy Walsh is the daughter of Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh. the 24 year-old singer/songwriter from Santa Barbara, Calif., isn't relying on celebrity lineage to get noticed. Trained in piano, voice and music theory, Walsh played keyboards on Ashlee Simpson's 2004 "Autobiography" tour, and signed a deal with ISLAND after a series of New York showcases. "So Uncool," the first single from debut "Lost in the Lights" owes more to Walsh's idol, Cyndi Lauper and'80s freestyle than the Eagles. This uptempo, synth-heavy ode to relationship insecurity picks up where top 40 confections like "Toxic" left off. Radio can look to "So Uncool" as a way to fill the dance-pop void created when Britney met Kevin.'

    Thanks for that JF. I gave it a listen and I agree with you. Lucy is quite good - good genes I guess. No matter what we sometimes think, I'd bet it really is difficult for the children of rock 'n roll legends to try to make it on their own. I wish her much success and am glad to see favorable reviews from Billboard for her.

    I agree. She was really rockin'. In fact I had "So Uncool" stuck in my head as I was showering today.

    So Uncool was very catchy--but I think I liked Awful Sorry the best, tho'!

    She's very good. Joe should be proud.

    Mmmmm - not so crazy about So Uncool but I can see it could have an audience.

    I heard So Uncool this afternoon as I was flipping throught the Music Choice Channels we get on digital cable. I was pretty impressed.
    How can love survive in such a graceless age?

    From Lucy's MySpace blog:

    I"'ve gotten countless requests to do my own recorded version of 'Heart of the Matter'...so I did it! I just finished recording, and it is being mixed as we speak. The best news is I hooked up with a generous investor, and will be filming a music video for my Mr. Henley cover. All this excitement will be released asap...ask and you shall receive!"

    What a beautiful, talented young lady she is. Not my kind of music but she is definitely very talented and will go places. Can't wait to hear her version of Heart of the Matter tho.
