A man who’s been an Eagle since 1976 is offering a boost to Bruce Braley’s U.S. Senate campaign.
Joe Walsh is the lead guitarist who helped the Eagles craft their most famous album, Hotel California. Some of his iconic guitar riffs are featured in songs like “Life in the Fast Lane” and “Life’s Been Good”. The Eagles will be in Des Moines September 6 for a concert and an email sent out under Walsh’s name invites people to donate to Braley’s Senate campaign.
One of the contributors will get two tickets to the Eagles concert and a private meeting with Walsh and the rest of the band. Braley and his wife, Carolyn, met at an Eagles concert in the 1980s when they were both Iowa State University students.
