The band is still describing his involvement as “in discussion,” but according to guitarist Joe Walsh, the Eagles will be joined by former member Bernie Leadon, who was in the band from 1971-1975,
on their upcoming tour.
This isn’t the first time an Eagle has raised the possibility of a special guest from the past popping up on the History of the Eagles Tour, but Walsh’s recent interview with Billboard marked the first time anyone’s come right out and named names.
“Bernie’s brilliant,” Walsh explained. “I never really got a chance to play with him, but we’ve been in contact. We see him from time to time, and I’m really glad he’s coming because it’s going to take the show up a notch, and I’m really looking forward to playing with him, finally.”
Walsh is also working on a blues album.
