The James Gang

I did some air duct cleaning at the home of an original member of the James Gang today. He was a very nice guy living a modest life. I thought that was pretty cool.

If you listen to classic rock or funk, you will often hear Funk 49 and Walk Away on those types of radio stations

A tad north of me - you pay a fee and get the walking tour of the house and a bullet hole in the wall(or so i was told) where Mr Ford shot him.

heh heh heh - I don't remember Jessie being noted for his singing. The James Gang funk was good.

Brings back memories: my older brother and I were listening to James Gang the first time we got high together. He's been my favorite brother ever since

I believe there was a bank in Parkville, Missouri that had an original window -removed and preserved for display- with a bullet hole in it from when Jesse and the (original) James Gang robbed it.

One of my all time favorite songs funk #49.
Love the gang and Joe Walsh in general.
Great memories,
Steve
PS. You don't get to play with the "Eagles" unless you are super good, No ?

Free to canoe, All I'm getting is mostly the bass guitar on your copy of the song. Either something wrong with the computer I'm using or a bad youtube copy of the song?

Have you heard the Joe & Eagles version?
