Eagles guitarist among finalists for TIME’s 2024 Person of the Year?

Why not Walsh for Person of the Year?

The list of nominees for Time magazine’s Person of the Year is always an eclectic mix of world leaders, pop culture icons, buzzworthy names, and human rights activists. The unexpected inclusion of the 76-year-old guitarist, as a 2024 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Walsh so important is the potential and influence he now has, rather than anything he has already done,” said a panelist who preferred to remain anonymous, adding that earlier this month, the guitarist have already been named ‘American Of The Year’ by some major American newspapers and even ‘Wichita Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Wichita (Joe Walsh's hometown).

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

A representative for the guitarist was not immediately available for comment, but the announcement generated immediate reaction on Twitter:

“Joe Walsh Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 4 Mar 2024
“Congrats! Joe has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 4 Mar 2024
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Joe Walsh?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 4 Mar 2024

Could 2024 officially be the Year of Joe Walsh?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2024 Person of the Year.

Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2024?
