DESPERADO - JOE WALSH

Today I was very lucky and able to get a few shots of the Eagles front man, Joe Walsh as he visited Hawkes Bay.

Joe was originally going to visit Otatara Pa, the site in Taradale which some 26 years ago prompted a drastic change in life direction, and a move away from a dependency on drugs and alcohol.

Due to the recent weather, it was decided to move the event to the Marae at EIT where a traditional Maori greeting was performed, and Kai then eaten.  Joe listened to several musical performances, including kids from Greenmeadows School who played Ukulele to one of the Eagles greatest hits, Hotel California.
