Seattle — Joe Walsh is known for being a part of the Eagles, the Party Boys and Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band. He is a multi Grammy Award winning musician and a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee. Yet, his father died when he was only 20 months old on active duty in Okinawa. Joe has been involved with veteran related causes for years and in 2017 founded VetsAid, a national non-profit organization, featuring a benefit musical festival to raise much needed funds for veteran groups across the country.
His first benefit concert was at EagleBank Arena in Fairfax, Virginia and his next one will be at the Tacoma Dome. We had Joe talk more about his concert and the work he has done with veterans.
