Randy Meisner

The founding member of the classic rock band Eagles, Randy Meisner, passed away at the age of 77 on July 26. His death was confirmed due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, as stated on the Eagles’ social media pages. The band wrote in their statement, “Randy was an integral part of the Eagles and played a significant role in the early success of the band.”

His singing range was remarkable, as evident in his signature song, ‘Take It to the Limit.’ Meisner was born in 1946 in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, and he was a crucial part of the music revolution in the 1960s, which also included the band’s involvement. He was a member of Poco and Rick Nelson’s Stone Canyon Band and also played as a backing band member for Linda Ronstadt.

Meesner’s career began when he acted in two Midwestern rock bands: first, Dynamics, then The Poor (originally known as Soul Survivors). However, his first real success came as a member of Poco. Poco was a highly acclaimed live act in Los Angeles signed by David Geffen to Asylum Records, but Meesner left the band during the recording of their debut album. Meesner then joined Rick Nelson’s Stone Canyon Band for a while. Later, he joined the backing band for Ronstadt when Don Henley and Glenn Frey, who were already in the band, were discussing starting a group together.

It was one of those situations where it was beneficial to everyone,” Ronstadt told Billboard in 2016. The Eagles were founded as a result of my recommendation that they hire Bernie Leadon to play guitar and John’s recommendation to get Randy Meisner.

I was always kind of shy,” he told Rolling Stone in 2013. sing “Take It to the Limit,” they wanted me to stand in the center of the stage, but I preferred to avoid the camera. I stayed up late one night in Knoxville and ended up getting the illness. Glenn requested another encore after we performed two or three. We argued after I told them I couldn’t do it. That was the conclusion. I had a strong sense of belonging to the group and not just being a part of it. When we began riding in different limos, the whole thing began to come to an end. Later, in 1998, he got back together with the Eagles for their induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
