“Ex-Poco member, Randy Meisner, made his subtle and important mark on the evening by doing his “Certain Kind Of Fool” and “Tryin'”–both numbers of high energy and Poco-like vocals. Meisner’s bass playing is simple, but steady.” -Jim Gerard, Cleveland Scene, May 17, 1973

On March 10th, 1973, the Eagles played the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. Randy’s bass playing is compared to Rick Danko’s & his “chillingly beautiful” performance of “Certain Kind Of Fool” is the highlight of the evening.
In this second installment of my series, In His Own Words, Randy talks about how he came to write or co-write some of his most treasured songs with the Eagles.
