    Meisner, Randy Herman (8th March 1946-Present)  

    He is a bass guitarist and singer-songwriter born in Scottsbluff, Nebraska.  In the early 1960s he was part of The Dynamics followed by The Poor with whom he moved to California 1965.  He became a session musician and played with the band Poco on their first album before moving on to become a member of Rick Nelson's Stone Canyon Band.  When he was part of the Linda Ronstadt backing band he teamed up with the other members of that to form The Eagles which was to become his full time musical occupation.  He wrote several of their songs either alone or in collaboration and he saw success with the hit single "Take It to the Limit" where he also sang lead vocals.  He left the band in 1977 to pursue his solo career and released three albums between 1978 and 1982.  As a support musician he as also worked with artists including Richard Marx, Dan Fogelberg and Joe Walsh, and played on James Taylor's album Sweet Baby James.  He has appeared in a reunion with Poco and performed with the other members of the Eagles when they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.
