Sending love to Mary, Sara, Hallie, current and former band members, and the entire Poco family. We have lost a Legend.... Rusty was one of a kind; pioneer, virtuoso player of string instruments, kind, caring and giving. Rest in peace my friend.

With great shock and sadness I just read that Rusty Young has passed away. I will always remember meeting him briefly during a tour of Poco in the Netherlands. During the support act for the second concert, he suddenly joined us in the hall. "Nice to see you again," he said. He probably recognized us because of our 12 year old son who was there both times, not the average audience of this great band.
Rusty, thank you for all the beautiful music you have given us and will continue to give. You are and will always be the best steel guitarist ever. Much strength to Mary and other relatives.

RIP. Rusty Young. I saw Poco twice at the Tulsa Fairgrounds Pavilion in the 70s They were great to say the least. Rusty Young was awesome with all the different sounds he could get out of his lap or pedal steel, then he could get this great Hammond B-3 sound. Paul Cotton played a Gretch White Falcon a lot. I’m pretty sure the last time I saw them was right before TBS joined The Eagles. I was and still am a big Poco fan. There’s a guy I barely knew years ago in Tulsa named Richard Neville. He wound up playing bass with Poco for many years. I’m impressed to say the least. I hope Rusty Young is in heaven right now gearing up for a new band with Gram Parsons

My wife and I had the pleasure of seeing Rusty and Poco with Jim Messina at the Scottish Rite Auditorium in Collingswood, NJ in March of 2019. It was our first Poco concert after listening, enjoying and gleefully singing Rusty’s hits in the shower for 40 years. I listen to Rusty’s music almost every day on Spotify. He has touched so many hearts, he will be missed.

I just got home from Bible study and turned on the news to hear of Rusty's passing. My condolences to Mary and the rest of the family, the musicians that played with, knew, and loved Rusty! Finally to my fellow fans, Poco Nuts (sigh) who appreciated what these young men created. Catching and harnessing the vision even though success was so elusive! God Bless everyone whose heart was touched by Rusty and the music and vision of Poco! Our prayers are with you tonight and always...

Rusty, I have saved a big corner of my heart for you. You are one of the nicest people I have ever met. You wrote so many great songs, songs of my life. I am going to miss Camaraderie and future concerts, and cherish all of the shows that I have seen from the Shaefer Beer shows through the 2020 shows.

I feel like a piece of my life has passed on...but like the best ones, I will cherish the memories.
Dear Mary, you and Rusty meant so much to me. Shows, road trips, hoedown and a walk on a breezy Fall day. There will always be a little magic in my Poco memories.

For the love of Mary, Missouri received a lot of special time with Rusty. You are in my prayers and always in my heart.

Tony and Pocomutt II, Fergus.

Dear Mary and Family
There really aren't words for all of this. Rusty & POCO have a history with millions of us. The music and memories live on in our hearts and minds. My husband and I were fortunate enough to meet Rusty and the gang at a concert. We will never forget how they stayed, signed CD's, talked, took pics after a phenomenal concert. You, Mary, were an endless piece of his heart. Thank you for sharing with us. Much love and prayers.
