INTERVIEW #3 : Jim Messina – How they Built The Band Poco
Jim Messina formed Poco with fellow Buffalo Springfield bandmate Richie Furay and Rusty Young, who guested on the last Springfield album. The band was a clear answer to the growing influence of Country/Rock. I asked Jim Messina about how it started.
I had a chance to interview ex-Eagles bassist and vocalist Randy Meisner a few years ago. He was an original member of that band as well as Poco. He was only on their first album and he explains why here..then we’ll hear from Jimmy Messina.
Jim Messina is doing shows this year right up to November. Go to Jim Messina.com for details. We’ll have more of our conversation with Jim in one week. – by John Beaudin
