It's been 20 years since Joe Walsh's last solo record, 1992's Songs for A Dying Planet, but on June 5th the Eagles and James Gang guitarist will break that silence with the release of Analog Man. Filled with steady rockers like "Hi-Roller Baby" and "Wrecking Ball," not to mention heaps of hot licks (check out the beginning of "India"), Analog Man can be streamed in its entirety here, and you can pre-order the record on iTunes as well.

"I had a really good time doing this album," Walsh told Rolling Stone in a recent interview. "It was great to get my brains out onto a CD. I really think I'm back, and it's not going to be another 25 years until the next one."

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
