Ea­gles band mem­ber Joe Walsh and his wife, Mar­jorie Walsh, have been hon­oured by the non-profit Fac­ing Ad­dic­tion with NCADD (The Na­tional Coun­cil on Al­co­holism and Drug De­pen­dence) for their sup­port of the re­cov­ery move­ment.

Singer-gui­tarist Walsh, now al­most 70, per­formed re­cently at a gala fund-raiser with Vince Gill — who has been tour­ing with the Ea­gles — and Michael McDon­ald. Walsh, who has been sober for 25 years, told his story of al­co­hol and drug de­pen­dence, as did his wife when she in­tro­duced him to the crowd.

Also at­tend­ing was Walsh’s brother-in-law, ex-Bea­tle Ringo Starr. Mar­jorie Walsh is the sis­ter of Bar­bara Bach Starkey, Starr’s wife, who uses Ringo’s orig­i­nal last name.
