Joe Walsh vs Joe Walsh

A Republican candidate for Congress having the same name he does is something Joe Walsh of the Eagles can't do much about.  But Joe Walsh the politician using a song Joe Walsh the musician has rights to is, at least in the mind of the guitarist, who waged a tongue-in-cheek campaign for President himself in 1980. Lead The Way, the painfully lame song congressional candidate Walsh posted on YouTube is a straight rip from Walk This Way, the song Joe Walsh recorded while a member of the James Gang.  Candidate Walsh, a self-proclaimed Tea Party conservative, says his use of the song does not violate copyright because it is a parody.  Guitarist Joe Walsh is not amused.
