He continued in the role on Walsh's next album The Smoker You Drink, the Player You Get, co-writing “Rocky Mountain Way” and writing “Book Ends” and “Days Gone By”. After that, Vitale appeared on the majority of Walsh's albums, co-writing songs onBut Seriously, Folks, You Bought It - You Name It, Got Any Gum?, Ordinary Average Guy, and Songs for a Dying Planet. When Walsh was asked to bring in a song for Hotel California, the one that he'd written with Vitale, “Pretty Maids All in a Row”, was the one that Glenn and Don Henley liked the best.
Jack Tempchin wrote and co-wrote two songs on the best-selling U.S. album of the 20th Century, respectively: "Peaceful Easy Feeling" and "Already Gone" co-writing their hits "Somebody," and "It's Your World Now." During Glenn Frey's solo career Jack co-wrote a dozen radio hits in the 1980s with Glenn Frey: “Sexy Girl”, “The One You Love”, “Party Town”, “True Love”, “Part of You Part of Me” (for Thelma & Louise), “You Belong To The City” and “Smugglers Blues” (for Miami Vice).
