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.

A Wednesday, April 3rd announcement is expected from the Rolling Stones, as on Friday (March 29), they posted a news item to their website that simply read,
“5 Days & Counting…”
The future announcement will come a week after the Stones confirmed their first concert of 2013, a headlining slot at the Glastonbury Festival on June 29.
Earlier this month it was projected that they will play “fewer than 20 dates.” Last year, the band played five nights in London and the New York area — complete with numerous guest stars — as well as the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert. And recently they announced Glastonbury Festival.
A play based on Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’ will be broadcast on BBC Radio to mark the album’s 40th anniversary.
Entitled ‘Dark Side,’ it was written by long-term fan Sir Tom Stoppard and the cast includes Bill Nighy and Rufus Sewell. It’s set for broadcast on August 26.
David GIlmour has read the script and says he found it “fascinating.” He adds: “I can’t wait to hear it come to life with the great cast performing it, and our music woven into it. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’s’ 40-year anniversary.”
