Poco visited the Hollywood offices of Teen Screen magazine in this rare article published in August 1969. It featured a two-page spread of photos, plus an article about the band and other visitors. By the time this piece was published, Randy was long gone from Poco and a member of Rick Nelson’s Stone Canyon Band. The article stated that Randy left the group two weeks after this visit, so these photos were likely taken circa February 1969. The band members took the photos themselves because the editor’s camera wasn’t working. Jim Messina’s photo is noticeably absent from the individual shots of the band. It’s possible he refused to take one. This would be reminiscent of his missing response to the Poco fan club questionnaires from c.1968 (read them here).
