Forget Spuds McKenzie. Guitar hero Joe Walsh is the original party animal, at least as far as today's '70s-rooted hard-rockers are concerned. And if the Universal Amphitheatre was less than full for his show Wednesday, the beer lines were still heartily manned by the faithful who turned out to hear raucous hits from James Gang, Eagles and solo days. As David Letterman might put it, "Let's face it, the guy is a goofball."

Abortion rights were back in the news Friday, even as President Barack Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney stepped up their efforts to win the women's vote . Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.), who is facing a tough race to retain his seat in Congress, told reporters Thursday that he was opposed to abortion under any circumstances - and that thanks to medical progress, “you can't find one instance” when it might be necessary to perform an abortion to protect a woman's health.

No one is likely to accuse Joe Walsh of being too stiff or serious on stage. In fact, opening a two-night stand at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano on Friday, he was very loose in the early set and, one guesses, even looser in the late one. For the nearly two decades that Walsh has been rocking professionally, he's been a skillful, often-inspired guitarist, a funny and/or weird guy, and an erratic though often fine songwriter--approximately in that order.

Illinois Republican Rep. Joe Walsh came under Democratic fire Tuesday over remarks that appeared to question whether challenger Tammy Duckworth, a Black Hawk helicopter pilot who lost her legs in combat in Iraq, was a “true hero.” Duckworth's campaign called the comments an insult to veterans, while Walsh insisted that his words were being distorted and that he indeed believed she was a war hero. The first-term lawmaker from McHenry made the controversial remarks Sunday at a campaign event in Elk Grove Village, and his comments gained attention after Democratic critics posted a video.

If you and your friends were to get together and make as much noise as you could on a Sunday night, subject a captive audience to a slide show and to a seemingly endless supply of bad jokes, you'd wind up with angry neighbors and disgusted guests. But then, chances are you aren't a rock star and your friends don't happen to be some of the finest musicians in rock.

Freshman Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.), shown on video (see below) using sharp and angry language while discussing the economy with constituents, said today he was "a bit too passionate" at the gathering he hosted last weekend in a Chicago-area restaurant. In the video making the rounds today, the finger-pointing Walsh says he's "pissed off" and "tired of hearing that crap," and at one point demands quiet and warns that he may have to ask one of the attendees to leave. Walsh is a tea party adherent and among the most vocal members of the new freshmen class.

Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) owes more than $100,000 in child support and interest to his former wife, she alleges in a Cook County Circuit Court filing.

Walsh, a 49-year-old Republican, entered Congress in January, swept into office with help from "tea party" activists. He often appears on television demanding the country drastically cut its spending and pay its bills.

Legendary rock guitarist and singer Joe Walsh is best known as a member of the quintessential Southern California band of the 1970s, the Eagles, now in rehearsal for a European tour. He also racked up several hits as a solo artist and as a member of the James Gang. But Walsh is perhaps the most accessible of rock stars, at least electronically--he spends a lot of his down time chatting via Webcam on the Internet and on shortwave amateur radio. Walsh, 53, has homes in Sherman Oaks and San Diego.
