Sheesh.

As someone who became a huge Eagles fan after their initial run, I'm glad I got see Randy later as part of Poco when they regrouped. I saw them opening for Richard Marx around 1990. I knew he's been in poor health for a while now so not surprised to hear the news. I was able to find his solo albums at a Goodwill a few years ago and they're pretty good.

No... after he left in '77 the only time he played with them was the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in '98.

RIP Love the Eagles

Sad to see another icon gone. Take it to the limit one last time.

Time keeps moving along and taking us down with it.

The Eagles have been a favorite of mine since my teens, I should really go see them in concert before they all pass on.

I'm glad I got to see all the '70s era member live at least once even though I wasn't a fan until the '80s. Saw Henley and Walsh each on their own once. Then saw Randy with Poco. Then went to the History of the Eagles tour which of course had Henley, Frey, Walsh, and Schmit with Leadon also appearing. Just saw Felder last year to complete them all. Don't really care about seeing Vince Gill or Deacon Frey with them as I don't consider them real members since they were never on the studio albums.

They have said the upcoming tour is the final one. First 13 dates announced but it's supposed to run until 2025. Looks like Deacon is back for the final run.

I've only had the chance to see them once... on the Hell Freezes Over tour.
