Joe Walsh: Someone's Trying to Kill Me!

5/31/2010 4:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Eagles" guitarist Joe Walsh claims a man in his 70s has threatened to shoot him dead ... this according to new court documents.

But the septuagenarian suspect doesn't seem like a fragile old man -- Walsh says the old guy already attacked his personal assistant with a block of wood.

It's all laid out in legal documents filed by Walsh in which the rock legend claims -- Nassar Adhoot -- who owns land near Walsh -- trespassed on his property earlier this month.

In the docs, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Walsh claims his P.A. approached Adhoot ... but the old guy attacked him and then shouted, "You tell Joe Walsh I'm going to kill him. I'm going to shoot him."

Walsh says he was so freaked out -- he filed for a restraining order to get protection for himself, his wife, his assistant, his maid and his gardener.

We called Adhoot for comment ... but we were told he was taking a nap at the time.

Fellow TMZ readers, please join me in NOT commenting under any Lindsay Lohan stories in the hopes that TMZ will take the hint and realize we're sick of hearing about her.

Remember, a restraining order is not a bullet-proof vest. If someone wants to kill you.....it's over.

What's Joe doin in California as he should be in Memphis hang out with the guitar guys at Gibson and eating at KFC.



Wonder if he's ever fished on Reelfoot, or ever thought about opening a night spot there. As opposed to Paris.



Wonder when the last time that guy was on the Ole Miss Net.

This story was published at 12:45 AM. Of course the guy was taking a nap, or as most people call it, sleeping. You guys are idiots, TMZ.

Two words - pre-emptive strike.



Walsh should file court papers against all the Beagles. Musically they cut his sack about 20 or 30 years ago. Once he joined them, it was like his talent was snipped.

Hey Joe. Get off your ass and do your own cleaning and gardening! Some radical you turned out to be.

So, your saying even though he's playing 30-100 shows a year when he get's home he should ignore his family and clean and garden. If he has the money to hire people, let him, he's busy with his career that's making more a night than you make in a year or more.



He hasn't lost his talent, look at the latest Eagles stuff. He's rockin' them better than he used too, especially his solo stuff.

His Prince Michael    

Joesph, what is one of the MOST under-rated guitarists in Rock Music
history to do? Perhaps: Knock at neighbors door, good bottle of
vino plainly visible, and offer a peace-treaty? Break out your
finest acoustic, and politely ask what kind of music he'd like to hear, because...after all...you're JOE WALSH?
Last resort? Glenwood Springs, is righteous this time of year,
and ROCKY MOUNTAIN WAY, is better than the way we HAVE!
May Yahweh bless you, brother.

HAHAHAH!!! Joe Walsh is still mental as usual. He has always thought people are out to get him. Drugs.

Better Than You    

Some of you fools have listened to too much pop tart "music" to know what good music really is. Joe is a legend. Something your Lady Gaga and that fat, ugly girl who thinks it's cool to put a dollar sign in her name, will never be.



Be safe, Joe, and lay off the chemical peels.

Don't get me wrong. I'm a big James Gang fan. But seriously folks, having Joe Walsh lecture people on substance abuse makes about as much sense as having Bristol Palin lecture school kids on abstinence.
