    Default Joe Walsh and Bad Company in Los Angeles on May 20, 2016

    What a night! I'm typing this on my phone so I'll be brief for now.

    Regarding the VIP thing, I talked with Joe for like 15 seconds in between photos so there were no deep meaningful moments, but I gave him a big hug and he was very sweet. The photo will be available in a week or two.

    The set list was typical, except we only got a two-song encore. He's changed a lot of the guitar solos even from when I saw him a few months ago, which was cool. Waddy Wachtel was amazing with Joe. They were really in.sync. Loved Joe Vitale too.

    Something very not typical... Ringo Starr joined him for Rocky Mountain Way! I got to see a Beatle perform!

    I cried all through TITTL, but I appreciate Joe taking time during his show to recognize Glenn.

    I'll post a photo of the set list tomorrow and the meet'n'greet when I get it. Gosh I hope that photo is flattering! Now all I need is a photo with Tim. Maybe Sunday...

    Soda, how wonderful! So exciting to have the surprise of Ringo Starr showing up to help out as well!

    Would love to be there with you all. Have loads of fun!

    Last night was One Hell of a Night! Joe Walsh was awesome as usual. I'm still mourning the loss of Glenn Frey. I hope the remaining Eagles find a way to come together and do some shows. Such an incredible ensemble of talent.

    Soda is absolutely correct! The concert was great, Joe was FABULOUS & Ringo was an AMAZING surprise!! From my vantage point I could see Ringo perfectly & when Joe walked back out for the encore it took me a second to realize a different drummer came out & oh my it was Ringo!!! I think a lot of the crowd did not realize it yet because they were rightfully focused on Joe. But then with a huge grin Joe turned & pointed at the new drummer & the crowd erupted. After they did RMW, Ringo stood & gestured to his heart to Joe and Joe returned the gesture. You can see they have a great relationship. And as Joe then said as Ringo was leaving, "You don't see that every day"

    It sounds so good. Of all of the solo acts, this is the one I'd like to see. I'm hoping they'll bring it to the UK at some point.

    How were Bad Company?

    I didn't know any of the songs by Bad Company and wasn't keen on all the smoke effects, but they were energetic and sounded great. Paul Rodgers really knows how to work a mic!

    I'm kinda glad I decide to not go to Nashville. I'm not really a fan of Bad Company and I don't even know what songs they sing. All I knew that Paul Rodgers used to sing with Queen.

    Did Joe go on first and last. I know he and Bad Company rotate who goes on first and last.

    Joe went second. Otherwise, I must admit, I would have left early and not stayed for Bad Company. They're a good band; it's just I'm not really familiar with them.
