It seems fairly difficult pinning Joe Walsh down to a release date for his new album ‘Analog Man’.

Joe Walsh is done with his new solo album, Analog Man, and is looking to set a release in May or June. It’s his first solo set since 1992’s Songs for A Dying Planet.

Not that he’s been sitting around those twenty years. There was the Eagles’ comeback album, Hell Freezes Over and the very successful Long Road Out of Eden plus the numerous tours with the group, but Walsh is ready to put out a bit of his own work.

Walsh talked to Dave Good of the San Diego Reader about the upcoming album and the state of the union. Even though the album is called Analog Man, the world has gone decidedly digital. “I just decided I better get with it. After all, it is the digital age. Back when it was all analog, we used to go in the studio, and studios had knobs. We used to turn knobs and say, let’s see what this does. Now, we have a mouse. We [the members of the Eagles] spend hours yelling at our computers. My son comes in and he says, Dad, you’re really stupid.”

He’s obviously not a big fan of the digital age and what it has wrought. “I was at a Laker’s game last night, and everybody there was texting. Now and then they’d look up and check the score.”

Walsh also ranted about the current situation in the U.S. “First of all, there is no more money. We have spent it all. Why is everybody waiting for things to get better? They’re not gonna get better, and that’s screamin’ at me. Thirty thousand vets are comin’ home and nobody gives a fuck.

“Congress is corrupt. There are players inside who are more powerful than the federal government, and they are calling the shots. Partisan politics is out of control. And we’re pretending there is more money and there isn’t.”
