Who’s with Joe? See below…

Joe Walsh turned 72 on November 20, and from the looks of a photograph shared by Ringo Starr, the classic rock legend enjoyed a memorable evening with friends.

Ringo, Walsh’s brother-in-law by marriage – the pair are married to sisters Barbara Bach and Marjorie Bach – tweeted a photo on Nov. 22 of Walsh beaming while eating a piece of chocolate cake. The caption read, in part: “Happy birthday Joe that was the best dinner party we’ve been to all day.”

Seated next to Walsh? None other than Jeff Lynne, who himself will turn 72 on December 30. (Starr turned 79 last July 7.)

Some of the comments on Starr’s tweet were pretty humorous. @LivMeDo asked, “who’s joe?” and was quickly educated by others in the tweeterverse. @SamFowler69Reds offered to host the group at a subsequent gathering. “The best dinner parties are at my house and all are welcomed. Feel free to stop by on the second Tuesday of the week,” he tweeted.

All three stars have busy years planned. Ringo has announced the 2020 edition of his All Starr Band, with a North American tour scheduled to begin on May 29. Tickets are available here. He released a studio album, What’s My Name, on Oct. 25, which features a little help from his friends Walsh, Paul McCartney, and many others.

Lynne released his first studio album since 2015, From Out of Nowhere, on Nov. 1. It’s expected that Jeff Lynne’s ELO will tour in 2020.

As for Walsh, he performed his third annual VetsAid benefit concert with guests ZZ Top, Sheryl Crow, the Doobie Brothers, and others, on Nov. 10. He’ll join his Eagles bandmates for a 2020 tour where they’re performing their Hotel California album with a full orchestra. Dates begin Feb. 7; Tickets will be available here.

Before the birthday dinner, Walsh posted: “Thank you for all of the birthday wishes! Life’s been good.”
