Biography

American musician inducted with the Eagles into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on January 12, 1998. By year end 2003, The Eagles recording of "Greatest Hits 1971-75" has sold over 40 million copies world wide, second only to Michael Jackson's "Thriller," and their US career sales of over 65 million copies sold is 5th best in history, behind The Beatles, Garth Brooks, Led Zeppelin and Elvis Presley.

At age 15, he was a founding member of the Dynamics, Meisner played the bass guitar and was the lead vocalist for the band, which made its debut in 1961 in a Henry, Nebraska dance hall. The band was popular with the locals and played there for several months. The band became known as the Drivin' Dynamics, and, in 1965, they released their first 45 rpm record with Randy as vocalist. A competing band, the Soul Survivors, which changed its name to The Poor, lured Randy away. With The Poor's lack of success in 1966 and 1967, Randy founded another band, Poco and did studio work until 1970, when he left to join Rick Nelson's Stone Canyon Band. He played in the studio band for Linda Ronstadt and was an original member of The Eagles, formed in 1972, with a strong mix of rock, country and folk. The Eagles' first album, released in 1974 went gold, with several best-selling albums to follow. In 1977, Meisner left the Eagles to go solo and, released his first solo album in 1978. He then rejoined a changed "Poco" in 1989 but left when friction resurfaced. In 1992, he joined the group named "Black Tie."
