Joe Walsh had the Album of the Year in 2012 -- according to contributors and readers of Vintage Guitar magazine.

Analog Man garnered a little more than 41 percent of the vote, followed by Joe Bonamassa's Driving Toward the Daylight, Chickenfoot Three and Apocalyptic Love from Slash. Walsh also was one of the top guitarists of the year, placing third behind Charlie Christian and ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons.
