By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Randy Meisner, a retired American singer and co-founding member of the American rock band Eagles, passed away on July 26 in Los Angeles due to lung complications at the age of 77.
Randy Meisner was a founding member of the Eagles, known for hit songs like ‘Hotel California’ and ‘Take It to the Limit’.
Born in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, in 1946, Meisner moved to California at the age of 19 and started playing in local bands. Meisner wrote and sang some of the Eagles’ most famous songs, including ‘Take It to the Limit’ and ‘Try and Love Again’.
“The Eagles are sad to report that founding member, bassist, and vocalist, Randy Meisner, passed away last night (July 26) in Los Angeles at age 77, due to complications from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary disease (COPD),” the Eagles announced on their website.
“Randy was an integral part of the Eagles and instrumental in the early success of the band. His vocal range was astonishing, as is evident on his signature ballad, ‘Take It to the Limit’” the Eagles said.
“As the original bass player for the pioneering country-rock group, Poco, Randy was at the forefront of the musical revolution that began in Los Angeles, in the late 1960s.
“In 1971, Randy, along with Glenn Frey, Don Henley, and Bernie Leadon, formed the Eagles and contributed to the band’s albums, Eagles, Desperado, On The Border, One of These Nights, and Hotel California. He was inducted with the Eagles into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.”
