    Default Rusty Young, 75, has passed away

    Sad news: Rusty Young died Wednesday at age 75. He was an original member of Poco and former bandmate of Randy Meisner and Timothy B. Schmit. He wrote one of my favorite Poco songs, “Crazy Love.” Condolences to his family and friends. RIP.

    “I just received word that my friend Rusty Young has passed away and crossed that line into eternity,” co-founder Richie Furay said in a statement to Variety. “My heart is saddened; he was a dear and longtime friend who help me pioneer and create a new Southern California musical sound called ‘country rock.’ He was an innovator on the steel guitar and carried the name Poco on for more than 50 years. Our friendship was real and he will be deeply missed. My prayers are with his wife, Mary, and his children Sara and Will.”

    How very sad and unexpected. Rusty was a fantastic pedal steel guitarist, a great songwriter, and an overall very nice and humble guy. I will miss his music.

    So sad. Love Poco.

    Here's 'When It All Began': https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AvUhsLcjQ7o
    The following blog is inspired by a line from the song: 'Some called it country/Some called it rock and roll'.
    https://sshh-sshh.blogspot.com/2013/09/some-called-it-country-some-called-it.html

    And this is a comparison of Eagles and Poco:

    And here's Hard Country, Jack Sundrud and Poco: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dodt5C4pNj0



    Love to all Poconuts.

    Have not been on the Border for a bit and have missed it. My Dad died in the midst of Covid 19 and a month later, I was diagnosed with cancer. Hoping things improve in 2021.

I'm so sorry for what you have been through. Praying for speedy healing and recovery , and bright years ahead with your dark days behind you!
