The Eagles’ Joe Walsh Shares A Sneak Peek Of His New Song ‘Prayers’ Featuring Amjad Ali Khan
Famous rock guitarist Joe Walsh has tweeted a sneak peek of his upcoming song ‘Prayers,’ collaborating with Indian classical sarod player Amjad Ali Khan and his sons Ayaan Ali Bangash and Amaan Ali Bangash. He announced that the song will be released this Friday.
Joe Walsh is a known American guitarist, songwriter, and singer beyond praise with an exquisite career covering more than 50 years. Apart from his successful career as a solo artist, he has also been a member of three famous rock bands: Eagles, James Gang, and Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band. Walsh also got the 54th spot on the ‘100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time,’ a list made by Rolling Stone in 2011.
We have seen his performance as the Eagles guitarist on ESPN approximately a year ago, in July 2020, when the Eagles concert ‘Live from the Forum MMXVIII’ re-aired. He also had made a rock&roll radio show on his community radio station the Independent 88.5FM, and to use his words, cured our quarantine blues.
Ustad Amjad Ali Khan on the other hand, with who Walsh collaborated, is an internationally known Indian sarod player performing worldwide since the 1960s. He mostly performed with his sons from 1963 to the 2000s and tried experimental techniques with his instrument during his career.
In the tweet he posted, Walsh stated that the new song is made as a tribute to give support to frontline workers and conveys a message of peace, love, and hope. As is seen in his tweet, the song is expected to be released this Friday. This new collaboration seems like it will be a unique experience for the fans as it features two different cultural motifs, the sarod, and the guitar. Considering the aim of this project, it also serves a very impressive purpose.
Here is what Joe Walsh stated in his tweet:
“Prayers– East Meets West my new collaboration with Indian classical music legend Ustad Amjad Ali Khan & his sons Ayaan Ali Bangash and Amaan Ali Bangash created as our gift to support frontline workers & carry our message of peace, love, and hope. Coming this Friday.”
