James Gang - "The Bomber"

Joe Walsh was a name to conjure with back when I was a teenager. The Ohioan took the innovations of Townshend, Beck, and Page, added taste and a flare for tinkering, and came up with the most distinctive American rock guitar style outside of Leslie West's. Before the Eagles even existed, the first side of Rides Again was a holy sacred artifact, with this song as its pinnacle. Mark my words: Before I die, I will play this song with One Fingered Fist.
