    First Rusty Young earlier in the year and now Paul. My wife and I have been to three Poco concerts. One of my favorite Country Rock Bands. Paul was 78.

    Oh my. Poco, one of my early loves in the late 60’s I think it was. My best friend, who we lost last Christmas, introduced me to their music.

    RIP

    Too sad. I saw Poco blow The Eagles off of the stage.

    That’s a real shame. They were a band I had a lot of respect for.

    Check them out. They're really worth a listen.
    Richie Furay and Jim Messina from Buffalo Springfield were original members. Poco had some serious talent over the years.
    I saw them open for The Eagles on The Eagles' first national tour. Poco had 18K people jumoing. The Eagles were technically excellent, but their attitude screamed "Just give us our check and we'll be on our way."
    Poco got the final encore.

    RIP, Paul…

    I saw Poco in 1970, right after Paul joined the band. It was at the Golden Bear in Huntington Beach; they burned the house down!!!

    Wow! I used to take my dates to the Golden Bear in 1970. Small world.
