Ordinary Average Guy by Joe Walsh

Album: Ordinary Average GuyReleased: 1991
  • Walsh wrote this about his mid-life crisis. It deals with escaping the fame and fortune associated with the life of a Rock Star. Walsh makes a statement that even though he is famous, he is just as ordinary as you and me - he does yard work, has a Dodge, goes out bowling etc.
  • This is a parody of Walsh's previous release, "Life's been good to me," which is about Rock Star excess. Walsh is well known for his sense of humor. (thanks, Mike - Mountlake Terrace, Washington, for above 2)
