A FRIEND OF THE BAND

Drew Carey went back to his roots to form a band for his ABC sitcom, enlisting fellow Cleveland native Joe Walsh.

Carey will play the accordion in the musical group on the show this season. In addition to Walsh, the former Eagles guitarist, the band will feature two other northeast Ohioans, Jim Fox and Dale Peters, who played with Walsh in the James Gang.

"I guess I'm going to see myself on television," Walsh said. "I'm going to turn the sound down and pretend it's the 'Joe Walsh Show' with special guest Drew Carey."
