thanks Baron. FWIW I remember reading an old Japanese guitar mag article where he spoke about working on his own amps changing bright caps and such (though I have no idea if he still does now).

A top turn is Joe Walsh.
I was on the front row of the Blackpool opera house in 1970 when the James gang supported the Who on their British tour. Although my pals and I were stoked to see the Who, the James gang impressed all there and Joe was really funny chatting to us between numbers.

He still plays great, has a great sense of humor and is off the pi$$ these days. :jam:

A friend of mine Steve Clark owner and operator of SLIGO Amps built a 5E3 clone for Joe Walsh.
Here's me giving a gratuitous shout out for my friend Steve. He builds some of best clones currently on the market using Jupiter caps and Mercury transformers.

Joe was (is?) a ham radio guy, built his own gear, built/modded his own amps and guitars, still does AFAIK. 8)

I can't make out the make of the 335 looking guitar he has in the photos, anyone know what it is?

It is the guitar we all wanted when I was in junior high in the 60's, in red no less. Loved (and still do) that Bigsby it sported too.

what are those two red arrows pointing to in that last picture?

Joe has long been one of my guitar 'heros'. He got me into Les Pauls, it's all his fault. The very first issue of Guitar Player I bought featured him on the cover. With a Les Paul.

I was a junior in High School when this happened...May 4th, 1970 so the Joe Walsh (The Measles) pictures preceded the KSU shooting by 4 roughly years. Here's the opening few paragraphs from Wikipedia:

Kent State shootings

"The Kent State shootings (also known as the May 4 massacre or the Kent State massacre) occurred at Kent State University in the US city of Kent, Ohio, and involved the shooting of unarmed college students by the Ohio National Guard on Monday, May 4, 1970. The guardsmen fired 67 rounds over a period of 13 seconds, killing four students and wounding nine others, one of whom suffered permanent paralysis.

Image

Some of the students who were shot had been protesting the Cambodian Campaign, which President Richard Nixon announced during a television address on April 30. Other students who were shot had been walking nearby or observing the protest from a distance.

There was a significant national response to the shootings: hundreds of universities, colleges, and high schools closed throughout the United States due to a student strike of four million students, and the event further affected public opinion—at an already socially contentious time—over the role of the United States in the Vietnam War."
