This is posted in his retro Press thread, too! I'll copy my comment from there to here...


This should probably go in his Press thread rather than the Retro thread, but I can't move it.

TMZ doesn't often run an article on something they don't even think is true, so the very fact they are seriously doubting what this guy is saying means there is serious cause for doubt. They doubted what the man said from the start, which is why they went to Lana and Randy himself for comments (they seldom do that, too). I do know that people who are or used to be close to Randy have their own agendas and thoughts on things and since they don't have all the facts, it's hard to take them too seriously.

All I can say is what Nancy posted on here before. We do not know all the facts, and it would be grossly unfair to Randy to make assumptions, good or bad, and because we all love Randy so very much, it would be easy to try and blame someone else if he really does or did have such a problem.

The important bit from the article is that "legal documents have been filed." A request for a conservatorship would necessarily require sworn statements, made under oath, by named individuals as to what they have observed and upon what facts they are basing their request. If in fact a conservatorship has been filed, this is where it will get interesting (or, hopefully, not interesting.)

The story was also featured on the TMZ television show last night, but the episode has not yet been posted to their web site. It didn't feature this latest video with Randy and his wife, but the reporter (I think his name is Gary) said he spoke with Randy on the phone and that he was "very lucid."

I'm encouraged by the video of Randy speaking. Though his voice his weak and he sounds a little out of breath, he seems mentally cogent. The camera dude was asking him about this current incident and then abruptly shifted to the 1977 incident with someone named "Glenn Fey" and Randy didn't seem to have any trouble tracking the conversation.

Yeah, I was thinking: I bet this is the first time in his career/life that Randy has been "ambushed" (however gently) by a paparazzo as he was going about his daily life - in this case, leaving a deli where he and his wife just had breakfast. Welcome to 21st century celebrity culture, Mr. Meisner.

But still it's awfully good to hear something from Randy himself - it's been over 2 years. He speaks perfectly well, in fact he's more articulate than the young camera man.

P.S. This is the Randy clip from yesterday's TMZ show [warning for sensitive, intelligent people: it is a crass, crass show populated by vile, soulless people]:

There is no way in heck TMZ just happens to "run into" Lana and Randy Meisner behind a Studio City deli for goodness sake, the day after TMZ posted the article about the conservatorship. This reporter would have absolutely no idea who they are if he saw them in public, and he doesn't know who Glenn Frey is. They let TMZ know where to meet them so that Randy would have the opportunity to say his bit.

I haven't viewed the clip yet (I can't get it to play) but I'm unconvinced, simply as his wife is in close proximity.

You don't ask the prisoners about the conditions in a jail with the warders in ear shot.

Never-the-less, it's good progress. I take it Randy hasn't hired a personal trainer to get him in shape for a possible Eagles appearance.

If anyone has been concerned about my dear friend Randy Meisner's wellness please view the link below. There have been some very harsh rumors running around the web and I'd like you to see Randy speak for himself. TMZ caught up with him and captured his own take on what's going on.

Grooming and appearance is certainly something that will be taken into consideration.

It is absurd that the person who is supposedly the victim of emotional/physical/financial abuse is interviewed IN THE PRESENCE of his alleged abuser! Who thinks that is a good idea, or has any value whatsoever??!! As a lawyer, my unsolicited advice to Lana and Randy is that they need to retain a lawyer specifically to guide them in this issue, stat, and they absolutely should not speak to the media (or anyone) about the topic, especially TMZ for goodness sake.

I agree, VA. This is newsworthy and as long as we stick to discussing the TMZ report, I personally donít think we need to lock the thread. However, as you said, if the discussion devolves into speculating about Randyís personal situation without knowing the facts or making inflammatory and judgmental comments, then that is crossing the line. And if you're not sure where to draw the line, then it is better to err on the side of caution and not post at all. And, that actually applies to all thread on the board, not just here.

I agree with this, MC. I will say this about TMZ - even though they are definitely known for reporting on the more sleazy and salacious types of stories, their reporting is usually credible and factually accurate. However, to your point, even though I'm glad Randy spoke out, it does seem like it would have been better for him to have appeared alone. I just hope this mess gets resolved in Randy's best interest soon.

For what it's worth, Don Felder, who has said before that he remains friends with Randy posted the latest TMZ interview on Facebook with this comment:

Oh, and Felder should stay out of this. True or not, the allegations are serious. This unfortunate situation is not the right opportunity for him to highlight his connection to the Eagles on social media. I have no doubt that Randy is truly his friend, but he is putting himself in a horrible position if there ever turned out to be any truth to the allegations.

It's possible that Felder was asked to post the TMZ link by the Meisners. More intervention by Felder wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing.

If the Meisners insisted on a dual interview, it's still a step in the right direction.

Somebody is going to investigate the allegations a little more thoroughly, aren't they?

VAisForEagleLovers
05-02-2015, 04:45 PM
I don't want to start a discussion on that statement because with it comes a lot of opinion on several aspects of it that will end up being a discussion on aspects of Randy's life that don't need to be discussed in a public forum.

As is always the case, regardless of the situation or people being discussed, when there are two sides, both sides will be a lie, both sides will be the truth, and reality is often just a perception that is heavily influenced by experiences and prejudices. Even a judge making a final ruling in either direction won't mean it gives us the answers some of us are looking for.

MaryCalifornia

I started to post last night and then decided not to. All I can say is that there HAS to be more information in the court filings than what came out in yesterday's article. Agree with NMB that the reporting is weak - they obviously didn't have access to the pleadings. I don't know what the judge means, "I want to protect people like you." Like what? There must be an allegation of diminished capacity with some alleged facts to back it up that wasn't mentioned in the article, and this is the important bit. TMZ will probably post the legal pleadings eventually.

I expect the judge means people who are totally dependent on or inextricably paired with an (allegedly) abusive or neglectful partner or stuck in an unhealthy environment.

NightMistBlue
05-13-2015, 08:54 AM
Oh no, I would think that would be considered a biased remark if the judge was already suggesting Randy is in an abusive or neglectful situation - that's to be decided later I guess.

Still, "people like you," certainly seems like a loaded comment. Maybe the judge was only meaning Randy's weakened/vulnerable state due to poor health.

It is very difficult when there is finger pointing and blame to solve a problem when someone is ill, incapacitated or has alleged substance abuse problems. Putting one's Dirty Laundry, not to be funny, in the media is not helpful to anyone involved. I saw the TMZ report on TV and TMZ was making fun of the whole thing and that is very sad. This is a human being people,and people who believe he's in harms way are trying to help him. I'm praying for Randy and his family.

I'm sure the court will do its job, and all of the nasty details on both sides will be the food TMZ lives on for the duration. Like you, F50, I'm on Randy's side in all this, and so it bothers me that at the end of this, he'll have lost his privacy and likely his dignity. Everyone will get to salivate over his intimate details and once again, Henley's Dirty Laundry will be apropos of a situation.

Former Eagles Member Randy Meisner Allegedly Threatened Murder-Suicide



As unpleasant as it is, SilverAcidRayne, I haven't heard any denials. Randy's wife apparently stormed out of the courtroom rather than challenge the allegations.

It'd certainly explain Randy's absence from the HOTE tour and The Eagles' discretion in not going into detail about it.

Even with Felder's past record with tact and diplomacy, I'm surprised he posted this :doh:

That was a questionable choice of article (very sloppy "reporting" too - if RS is going to merely rephrase other articles, they should at least keep the facts straight) however, Don's sentiment was lovely: "My prayers are with my dear friend and ex-band mate Randy Meisner. One of the nicest and most gentle souls on this earth. May God be with you buddy."

And Felder sure reaches a lot of people. Most of the 500+ comments say they're praying for Randy - that can only be a good thing. I hope Randy somehow learns how many people appreciate his musical gifts, love him and care about his well-being.

RS is the only one who reported that Lana made the cocaine/clowns call to James Newton; all the others reported that call was made to nurse Marla Dodd. The latter is a strange story in itself - you can read her posts on the other Eagles fan site and her own Facebook page. With friends like these, as the saying goes.

I guess that we'll have to wait until the main hearing in September for the facts to come out (if they ever do). It's nice to see that others do care and are wishing Randy the best :).

I just heard about this on the sirius xm radio. A lot of Eagles songs especially Take It To The Limit have really helped me out when I'm feeling down. I've always felt like I owe the Eagles for all the hard times they got me through. My friend suggested that I send Randy a card to return the favor and help him out. I know I can't write a beautiful song like Take It To The Limit but I feel like this my chance to show how thankful I am. Now Randy needs to know that he's loved and he needs to be reminded to take it to the limit just as he reminded me so many times. Are you guys with me on this or am I too over the top? :worried:

I do think that that is a good idea SRMW, even though I'm way too chicken to do something like that. It would be cool if Randy could know how much he means to his fans. However, is there an address to send a card/letter to, like a fan address? If there is, I say go for it! :)

I don't think it would be wrong to send Randy a card, but the only Eagles address I've ever seen is this one:

Eagles Touring Company (ETC)
1100 Glendon Avenue, Suite 2000
Los Angeles, CA 90024

If you put Randy's name at the top, maybe they will forward it to him. I'm sure they all get fan mail, still.

ETA: Is this still correct, Soda? Or whoever knows?

I can't quite figure out what's going on here. It must be some mutually beneficial relationship with the Catherine Falk Organisation.

Randy Meisner: "To all my wonderful fans, thank you for the amazing show of support. I love you all so much!" 8/29/15


There's a lot on the page that I can't make any sense of but these are bits I understand;


Lana & Randy are doing well. I am in constant communication with both of them and I will continue to advocate for their constitutional freedoms while providing the support they need to get through this....tough period of their life.



People can attempt to post negative articles about Randy Meisner to my page but it will be deleted and you will be banned.


All comments made in this thread have been given to Randy today. Thank you.

Funk, Catherine Falk is an advocate for protection of the elderly and other vulnerable people from U.S. conservatorship practices/laws. She is advising Randy and his wife on their current legal difficulties.

Ms. Falk is the daughter of actor Peter Falk, who died from Alzheimer's several years ago. Mr. Falk's children were not allowed by his (second) wife to visit him in the final years of his life.

Thanks NightMistBlue, it looks like Ms. Falk wants to help family members who want the opportunity to visit relatives yet Randy doesn't want any contact with his immediate family.

Now it's September, I think some judgement in Randy's case is due.

There are several hearings scheduled for this month, but I'm not sure when a final decision will be reached.

Quoting the Funkster: "... it looks like Ms. Falk wants to help family members who want the opportunity to visit relatives..."
That's true, she works as an advocate for visitation laws and also to raise awareness on cases of conservator neglect/fraud.

I was surprised by her references to bi-polar disorder, alcohol abuse and prior drug use at the beginning of her post. Has Randy discussed or admitted to any of these conditions? Her position should be that he is in good physical and emotional health and is being appropriately cared for by his wife and doctors - full stop. She needs to coordinate with his lawyers and PR people!!

p.s. The Funkster! Love it!!

Edit: OK, now that thing she wrote appears to have been deleted since two days ago - Soda and Shun must have seen it, too, though. It's not there now. Guess she did hear from his lawyers.

Hi Mary! I was hoping you'd check in, counselor :)

AFAIK, Randy doesn't have PR people. No management either. I haven't ever read or heard him speak about substance abuse.

Snap! I missed that posting where Catherine said that stuff. Before, she's spoken of those issues within the context of: this is what the petitioners have said about Randy.

Catherine's own view is that Randy is clear-minded and on a healthier path. In her previous posts on Facebook - at least the ones I've read - she's said in a general way (not referring to Randy) that someone having an alcohol or drug issue is not reason enough for someone else to step in and take conservatorship.

Mary, do you have any work experience with conservator cases? I know very little about it, but some of stories on CF's site are appalling. People lose their civil rights and all their money sometimes.

My two cents...

I hope that people (and the media) won't keep repeating the "I'll take all the pills at once" thing like a mantra just for the shock value. Number one, it can be a scream for help. Number two, people do say stuff like that. I hate to mention this in public, but one person close to me (24 years older than me) kept repeating "I'll take all my pills" to me throughout my childhood. I've seen it, so it's not SHOCKING to see that Randy has said this (if he has). I've seen another person threaten to kill him/herself in a terrible way. Neither one was actually going to do it. These were passing situations, and I certainly won't be remembering them as "shocking incidents" that will haunt me the rest of my life. The thing is to get better. The only thing that counts is that Randy's going to be well and happy if he isn't at the moment. He's a human being. Plus, he's still Randy bloody Meisner.

If anything good can come out of a situation like this, I hope that more people will recognize that this guy played and sang on all the Eagles albums except The Long Run when they were first together. He's criminally unknown.

It is wonderful to see that so many people wish Randy well - not only on this forum. I do know that he has always had a dark side, but perhaps that's the price for being such a sweet guy most of the time. Well, let's face it, who doesn't have a dark side. It just seems more shocking when a really sweet person has one.

Thank you, chaim - wonderfully said. I hope that Randy will have the opportunity to tell his own story, if he chooses to do so. No one can tell it but him.

There seems to be very little about this on the internet.
Without L&M's Fast Lane page, I may have missed it altogether.

Maybe they intentionally publicised this as all the Henley/Walsh hubbub is going on. Both sided of the Meisner dispute have settled out of court with no further comment.

I hope it's good news, I presume so.

Yeah, I was thinking: I bet this is the first time in his career/life that Randy has been "ambushed" (however gently) by a paparazzo as he was going about his daily life - in this case, leaving a deli where he and his wife just had breakfast. Welcome to 21st century celebrity culture, Mr. Meisner.

But still it's awfully good to hear something from Randy himself - it's been over 2 years. He speaks perfectly well, in fact he's more articulate than the young camera man.

P.S. This is the Randy clip from yesterday's TMZ show [warning for sensitive, intelligent people: it is a crass, crass show populated by vile, soulless people]:

Of all the Eagles songs Take It To The Limit is the only one that comes at me in a very powerful way. Such a thoughtful song I love the DC 77 live version the way Glenn smiles when Randy does the high notes. Wish you well Randy

DC 77 show is my favorite live TITTL, too, tm. I've played that youtube video over and over again. It's so great when Randy hits it spot-on, knows it, and then Glenn gives him the props! :rockon:

There's a comment on Randy's situation from Don Henley in a recent interview he did with the Classic Rock magazine.


I hear former Eagles bassist Randy Meisner is having health problems. Isn't it ironic because Randy was the clean-cut one who kept away from everything?

No, he didn't keep away from everything. None of us kept away from everything. [Pause]. He went deeper into it as he got older, and just kept going. Every young man goes through a self-destructive streak. Some last longer than others and it's much harder for some men to pull themselves out of it. A lot of it has to do with how one feels about one's self. But we've been there for Randy and done everything we could, and now it's in the hands of an executor, who has been appointed by the courts to handle his affairs.
