I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Rusty Young. I have been a Poco fan since I first heard “Deliverin”. I was fortunate enough to see them a couple years ago near Ft. Lauderdale and as always they did not disappoint. Was able to meet Rusty after the show and he was so gracious. He was a really incredible musician and a wonderful person. My condolences to his family, band and fans. His music will live on.

POCO has always been my favorite band. I actually got to meet Rusty in the dinner line at a casino where they were to perform that night. He was gracious, funny and human. I saw the band many times while growing up in Southern California, they were always spot on great! Amazing catalog of music that will last forever. You will be missed.

One of the best concerts ever was Poco at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium in the mid Seventies. Towards the end of the show every single person in the auditorium was standing & jumping up and down on their seat. You could actually feel the building "rock" with the intense energy. At one point Rusty even picked up his chair and used one of its legs to play his pedal steel. I have been following Poco from the beginning and saw them with Canned Heat when they were called "Pogo". I've seen many Poco shows through out the years and of course Rusty was always the constant. No matter which version I saw, Poco always sounded fantastic. The music world has lost another giant. RIP Rusty. My thoughts and prayers to all.

I saw Poco perform twice in Kansas City and once in San Francisco. After the latter, at the legendary Fillmore, I mentioned to Rusty that I'd been to those concerts and we ended up having a conversation. Meeting him, Jack, and Paul and Richie briefly made my entire year. Like all of you, I'm going to miss Rusty, but I'll always be grateful that he kept the legend alive.

Rusty, Thank you for keeping the music alive for 50 years. You've been an inspiration and a continuous part of my musical journey. From the first time I saw Poco al the Fillmore East to being at the Springfield show when George had his stroke and beyond, I've sang, danced, smiled and felt the great vibes of Poco rhythms, words and message. Your legacy and mark on the music of American southern rock will forever be remembered and cherished around the world. RIP Rusty Young!!
