    Found it and scanned it! Sadly, there's not much to it.

    Beautiful! Thank you so much, Nancy.

    I wonder why Bernie doesnít have a website anymore.

    Thanks from me too, Soda, itís much appreciated.

    Maybe Bernieís website was meant to promote his album and other music. After awhile he may have gotten bored with it or generally disinterested and moved on.

    Thinking of you and hoping for the best. Stay strong Randy!

    I found it - it is in the May, 2008 issue. It is embedded as an insert on the final page of the Eagles article.

    Here's the write-up on Randy:

    Randy Meisner

    INSTRUMENT
    Bass YEARS IN BAND '71 - '77

    CONTRIBUTIONS - Meisner co-wrote and sang lead on the 1975 hit "Take It to the Limit." His high tenor was an integral part of the Eagles' harmony.

    DEPARTURE - His influence dwindled as Henley and Frey solidified control. "I felt like a member of the group, not a part of it," he says. Conflicts between him and Frey boiled over, and he quit after a backstage fistfight between the two.

    WHERE IS HE NOW? - Meisner lives in Studio City, California, and plays occasional gigs. Royalties have kept him very wealthy, but he'd like to perform with the band again. "Last time they came to town, I asked if I could sing "Take It to the Limit," he tells RS. "I didn't get a response. I'm not bitter. I got my house, a great wife, two Chihuahuas and five-foot tomato plants. I'm happy. How much money do you need?"


    I'll post Bernie's write-up in his thread later.

    This interview dated Jan. 31, 2019 is with Vince Gill but I mention here because of something he said that caught my attention:

    ďI donít have any false illusions that Iím going to sing something better than Glenn or better than (former Eagles bassist) Randy (Meisner),Ē he says, adding with a laugh, ďThere are still people who are mad that (Meisner) isnít in the band, and heís been gone for 40 years!Ē
    Itís funny and surprising that he has actually encountered this reaction and that it still pops up.

    Thinking of you and hoping for the best. Stay strong Randy!

    This was new to me: the DJ Redbeard interviewing Glenn and Randy about Desperado and On the Border. Wonderful stuff! http://www.inthestudio.net/online-on...aocl97hraUrbfs

    P.S. I love how Randy could remember the name of Glennís horse from the Desperado photo shoot 20 years later! Whatta doll.

    Thank you so much for this NMB!! I have read this interview existed but I never got to hear it. So far it sounds really interesting - Glenn saying Pocoís live shows were exciting but their records were ďtoo politeĒ and the FBB were sloppy in the studio. He really studied what these bands did wrong recording-wise and tried to not make the same mistakes.

    When I have time I will try to transcribe it before it gets sent to the cornfield again.

    Thinking of you and hoping for the best. Stay strong Randy!

    To the cornfield! What a cute expression.

    Thatís going to be a big undertaking to transcribe it - the program is almost 90 minutes long! Isnít it possible to save the audio? Then you can always hear Randyís sweet voice and laugh.

    P.S. Glennís interview took place May 9, 1992 and Randyís interview in 1989 when he was in Dallas to play a Poco concert.
