Everything To Know About Joe Walsh’s Daughter Lucy Walsh
Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh married his third wife, Juanita Boyer, in 1980 after a year of being together, but they got divorced in 1988. The pair’s daughter, Lucy Walsh, was born in 1982 into a family where music was not just a hobby but a way of life. Her father was a member of a rock band, while her uncle by marriage, Ringo Starr, was a part of the Beatles.
After growing up in such a musical environment, it was almost expected of her to drift towards music and later become a part of the entertainment and music industry. Lucy made a name for herself as a singer, creating her original works, including her 2007 album, ‘Lost in the Lights.’
Not confined to the recording studio, the artist took her talents on the road, touring internationally with renowned musicians and bands like Maroon 5 and Bruno Mars. She’s also been given the difficult task of singing the National Anthem at numerous prestigious events, including Dodger Stadium and UCLA’s Angel City Games.
In 2008, the singer and songwriter took part in MTV’s reality show ‘Rock The Cradle,’ where children of famous rock singers competed for the top spot. During the show, her performances received significant acclaim, earning the highest judge’s score of the season. In fact, Judge Larry Rudolph claimed that her singing gave him goosebumps and awarded her a perfect ten after her performance of Don Henley’s ‘The Heart of the Matter.’
Lucy, of course, is not just known for her singing; she’s also explored a career as an actress. She debuted her acting career playing Ariel in Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest’ and even scored a Broadway World nomination for Best Actress. She took place in many theater pieces, for some of which she won awards. Furthermore, she has appeared in various movies and TV shows, one of the most notable being her role on the 9th season of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm.’
With all the noteworthy achievements, there is a detail about the artist’s position in her family – she was not the Eagle member’s first daughter. His eldest child, Emma, was born in 1971 while he was married to his second wife, Stefany Rhodes. Tragically, the little girl passed away at the tender age of three due to a traffic accident caused by a reckless driver, a loss that impacted Joe Walsh deeply.
In the wake of Emma’s tragic death, Joe Walsh found solace in alcohol and drugs. He also channeled his grief into music, writing ‘Song For Emma’ as a means of dealing with his profound sorrow. A fountain was also erected in North Boulder Park in Emma’s memory, which suffered vandalism and decay over the years.
