Joe Walsh On How “It all started in Ohio”
Confirming this news in a statement, Joe Walsh explained what performing in Ohio means to him personally.
“It all started in Ohio,” he said. “Picking up my first guitar as a kid in Columbus set me on a musical journey to Kent State, Cleveland, and then the world”.
“Now it is a great privilege and humbling opportunity for me to share the stage once again with my original James Gang buddies and with this absolutely incredible group of Ohio rock legends like Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails, the Black Keys, the Breeders, and Dave Grohl”.
“I believe in Ohio and look forward to celebrating our musical legacy while honoring our veterans with VetsAid 2022″, Joe Walsh added.
All acts performing at this event also originate from Ohio. While Grohl hails from Warren, Ohio, Nine Inch Nails also hail from the state.
Meanwhile, Patrick Carney and Dan Auerbach also hail from Akron, Ohio.
