Yeah, he was joking around, but I think he really ran for president. His motto was free gas for everyone from what I remember. There is another Joe Walsh that has also ran for president and he was a conservative congressman. He had a conservation talk show a year or two back. My local station dropped him, so I don't know if he still has that going.A few years back Joe released a new cd that came with a "Joe Walsh for president" t-shirt.
I was surprised at how many of my old school coworkers did not recognize his name.
I said "Joe Walsh"……"Rocky Mountain Way?"……nope, "Life's been good to me so far?"……nope "Hotel California?" ……"oh that guy, I thought you meant the guy with the tv show with the missing kid" (John Walsh)...
Best entertainer since Bobby Darin in my view.
