Midwestern rock and roll was well represented in Los Angeles last night as legendary Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh hopped on stage with the Black Keys at the iconic Forum.
"We are beyond honored to have a guest come out and play with us tonight. Someone who we all up here onstage idolized over the years,” Auerbach told the audience (via Billboard) during the show on the Black Keys' current Let's Rock tour. “Not just because he's an amazing musician, but because he was from our own backyard, from northeastern Ohio."
Walsh, who was born in Kansas but spent much of his childhood growing up in Columbus, Ohio, emerged to a hero's welcome as he joined the band onstage.
The group then launched into a tribute to the late guitarist Glenn Schwartz, famous for being the original guitar player for the James Gang before Walsh took his place in the late 1960s. They played the song "Water Street," from the All Saved Freak Band album, For Christians, Elves, and Lovers (Schwartz played guitar with the group).
