Yet another reason why Joe Walsh just may be the coolest guy in rock — he can’t wait to play with the guy he replaced in the Eagles. Walsh confirmed that co-founding guitarist Bernie Leadon — who Walsh replaced in December 1975 — will be back on the road with the band this year playing during parts of the Eagles’ 40th anniversary tour.

Walsh shed some light on how Bernie Leadon would be fitting into the upcoming Eagles shows: “Bernie’s gonna come out, Don and Glenn and Bernie are gonna maybe do some acoustic stuff. Y’know, Bernie’s brilliant. He’s a great, great, guitar player. I never really got a chance to play with him, ’cause I kind of replaced him. But, y’know, we’ve been in contact. We, see him from time to time. And I’m really glad he’s comin’. Really glad he’s comin’, because it’s gonna take the whole show up a notch and I’m really looking forward to playing with him, finally.”
