Last month, Joe Walsh wrapped up the Eagles’ sold-out residency in Las Vegas, where the band performed Hotel California in its entirety — followed by a 23-song bonus set of greatest hits — with help from a 46-piece orchestra and 22-member chorus. Preparing for those shows was a mammoth undertaking, but it still pales in comparison to Walsh’s next project: overseeing the third annual VetsAid charity show, which brings a lineup of guitar heroes and roots-rockers to Houston’s Toyota Center on November 10th.

“I’ve played other people’s charities, but running one yourself is a whole different story,” says Walsh, who launched VetsAid in 2017 to help fund veterans charities at the grassroots level. “This started off as an idea, and sometimes, things are better left that way, but VetsAid became real! This year, we’ve got the Doobie Brothers, ZZ Top, Brad Paisley, Jason Isbell, Sheryl Crow, and me. You’re not gonna hear that lineup at any other concert.” The rest of the story can be found Here:
