Joe Walsh Says His Current Wife Marjorie Bach Is a Part of Him That Was Missing
After four failed marriages, Joe Walsh feels he has finally found his perfect partner in his fifth wife, Marjorie Bach. He has been married to his present spouse since December 13, 2008.
The veteran rock guitarist, singer, and songwriter, 73, was briefly married to his first wife, Margie Walsh, in the 1960s. He then married his second wife, Juanita Boyer, from 1980 to 1988, followed by marriages to Juanita Boyer from 1980 to 1988 and Denise Driscoll from 1999 to 2006.
Walsh also had a daughter, Emma Kristen, with his second spouse, Boyer, but unfortunately, his daughter passed away in 1974, at the age of 3. She died because of the injuries she suffered in an automobile accident on her way to nursery school.
Speaking to Interview magazine in October 2012, the veteran rock guitarist, singer, and songwriter, 73, talked about his personal family life and especially opened up on his special bond with his fifth wife, Bach.
Joe Walsh’s Fifth Wife Is His Missing Part
When the interviewer asked if his current wife was the one for him during the interview, he responded to the question, saying, "Oh, yes. Absolutely."
He continued to share that he felt Bach was the part of him that was missing from his life for the longest time. "I guess when you find the right partner, you realize that this is the part of you that was missing," the singer explained.
Walsh further praised her for showing him the right path in life, expressing, "So what I’m doing now, I didn’t know how to do before I was with her. She made it possible."
Besides, Walsh and Bach were reportedly addicted to alcohol and drug for a long time in their lives. But since they have been part of each other's lives, they have helped and supported one another on their journey to becoming sober.
In October 2018, the couple was also honored by the nonprofit Facing Addiction with NCADD for their support of the recovery movement. During the event, he — who has been sober for over 25 years now — even shared his story of alcohol and drug dependence.
The Couple Has Dedicated Themselves to Veterans
The Eagles guitarist, his wife, and their son Christian decided to dedicate their weekend to veterans and their families in the VetsAid event.
Walsh announced the decision in a December 2020 Instagram post, posting a snap with his beloved wife along with a lengthy caption to explain the details.
"Marjorie and I, and our son Christian, have been working overtime for the 4th annual VetsAid," he wrote in the caption. "This is our way of bringing some joy and raising funds, and letting our Veterans and their families know we are here for them."
