I already wrote my condolences, but wanted to add this. I once said to Rusty, “Why would you play Pickin Up the Pieces” while I was in the bathroom?” He said, “We always play “Pickin Up the Pieces” when you’re in the bathroom!” Hahaha. So funny, friendly, and sweet. And, Mary once sold me her own Poco Coozie because they were sold out. Have enjoyed many Poco shows, including the On The Blues Cruise before this wretched virus took over the world. Was looking forward to many more, but thanks so much for the music and also for being such a great guy!

So sorry to hear of Rusty's passing. POCO was always one of my favorite bands. Fan since the beginning. Got to see them twice live, once in the 70's, once in the 90's. Great band. Rusty, God speed man, we'll miss you!

So sorry to hear of Rustys passing. Rusty and my dad go back many years as my dad was a rep of ZB steel guitars and dealt with Rusty. Their friendship continued through the years. When my father passed Rusty took the time to send his condolences which was much appreciated. I have many memories of Rusty that I will always cherish. My father spoke very highly of Rusty.
Rest In Peace Rusty
