Joe Walsh says that despite not having worked together in over five years The James Gang is "alive and well." He tells M: Music and Musicians magazine he doesn't think the trio -- which reunited for 18 dates in 2006 -- "should have a 'comeback' tour" or "try to fill 10,000-seat places," but thinks they would "do great" in House of Blues or Hard Rock Cafe size venues. He says he misses playing in the trio format, because it makes him "play in a certain way" that's different from what he does in the Eagles. The James Gang's 1969 through '71 line-up of Walsh, bassist Dale Peters and drummer Jimmy Fox make up the current band.
Walsh is on the road this summer with his own group, promoting his new Analog Man album. They play the Sioux City Jazz and Blues festival in South Dakota on Saturday.
