Walsh and Trucks on CD by Microsoft?s Paul Allen!

 
Joe Walsh
Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen and his group the Underthinkers are releasing an album, Everywhere at Once, in August. Allen is the not-so-famous-as-Bill Gates co-founder of the technology company Microsoft, but is a huge guitar-head and music aficionado.


Everywhere at Once features some stellar guests. Joe Walsh, Derek Trucks, Heart’s Ann and Nancy Wilson, Chrissie Hynde, Doyle Bramhall II, Los Lobos’ David Hidalgo and Ivan Neville all feature on the album. Allen himself co-wrote all of the songs.
Seattle-native Allen saw Jimi Hendrix perform when he was 16 and was key in founding the EMP Museum in Seattle. Allen paid a reported $2m at auction to buy the guitar Hendrix played in ’69 at Woodstock.

“I've rarely gone a week without picking up a guitar,” he wrote in his memoir. “It's more than a hobby; it gives me balance and keeps me in the moment, which can be a challenge with all the projects I'm pursuing at any one time… I take music with me wherever I go.”

Proceeds from Everywhere at Once’s sales will go toward the EMP Museum‘s educational programs. Which is good, as in March 2013 Allen was estimated by Forbes to be the 53rd-richest person in the world.
