Joe Walsh’s Intimate Acoustic “Life’s Been Good” Performance Will Make Your Day
YouTube Channel (KOUJI328H)
Raw And Pure
Performing “Life’s Been Good” some time in the 90’s on MTV’s Unplugged, Joe is intoxicating on the acoustic guitar- this performance is just so raw, natural and honest that you will not be able to get enough.
“I have a mansion but forget the price, ain’t never been there, they tell me it’s nice. I live in hotels, tear out the walls. I have accountants, pay for it all…”
As a satyrical look on fame on fortune, Joe’s “Life’s Been Good” pokes a bit of fun at the celebrities in denial of the change in their lifestyles after “making it big” and it just seems the anthem of Joe Walsh- funny, sarcastic but also a little serious and sad.
Interesting Quote: “I wanted to make a statement involving satire and humor, kind of poking fun at the incredibly silly lifestyle that someone in my position is faced with – in other words, I do have a really nice house, but I’m on the road so much that when I come home from a tour, it’s really hard to feel that I even live here. It’s not necessarily me, I think it paraphrases anyone in my position, and I think that’s why a lot of people related to it, but basically, that’s the story of any rock star – I say that humbly – anyone in my position. – Joe Walsh
Granted this performance compared to others is not necessarily perfect as Joe seems to be “a bit out of it,” however, the innocence and purity of his mistakes almost somehow makes you love him more because it’s real just like the story he tells in the song.
Enjoy this insanely intimate performance of Joe and share on!
