An Evening with Walter Egan

Best loved for his chart-topper, “Magnet and Steel,” Walter Egan is more than a one hit wonder.  His follow-up to that hit, “Hot Summer Nights” was used as the inspiration for Eminem’s 2009 smash, “We Made You.”  Egan’s composition “Hearts on Fire” was recorded by Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris on the classic album Grievous Angel.  With numerous covers of his songs around the world, Egan has released ten solo CD’s as well as three with the Brooklyn Coyboys and six with the Malibooz.  “Magnet and Steel” has been featured in commercials and major motion pictures such as Deuce Bigelow, Boogie Nights, Overnight Delivery, and The Night We Never Met.  More than just a writer and singer, Egan has played on many sessions and has worked with such luminaries as Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Don Henley, Jackson Browne, Linda Rondstadt and even played bass for the classic group, Spirit.  Today Egan continues to play with his Walternative Band and with his surf band, the Malibooz.  In February 2014, his tenth solo album, Myth America, was released on the Classic Music Vault label.  His exhibit of paintings, “The Martyrs of Rock” was shown in Washington DC and will open at the Mr Musichead Gallery in Los Angeles in January 15, 2015.  Please join us as we welcome Walter Egan to the Clive Davis Theater.  Following an interview with GRAMMY Museum Executive Director, Bob Santelli, Egan will perform.
