Sony/ATV Music Publishing has signed a worldwide publishing deal with singer, songwriter and guitarist Joe Walsh.
Walsh has served as a member of the Eagles and has recorded a string of popular solo albums across five decades, with over 20 releases to his credit.
His agreement with Sony/ATV covers songs such as Life’s Been Good, Rocky Mountain Way, All Night Long and Lucky That Way, as well as Life In The Fast Lane and In The City, which he wrote and recorded with the Eagles.
Sony/ATV chairman and CEO Martin Bandier said: “Joe Walsh is a musical giant and we are honored that he is entrusting his incredible catalog of songs with Sony/ATV. I know all our guitar-playing executives – and there are many of them – look at him as a hero, but he is not only one of the all-time great guitarists but a terrific songwriter as well.”
Irving Azoff, Walsh's manager, said: “Joe’s vast career catalogue, both solo and with Barnstorm and the Eagles, have found the perfect home with Marty and Sony/ATV.”
Walsh added: “Sony/ATV Music Publishing has a great team. I’m happy to be onboard.”
