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."

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
