Poco Founder Rusty Young Dead at 75

Post by TemerityB » April 15th 2021, 7:23pm

Poco founding member Rusty Young - and for my money, one of the real music innovators in the way he performed on pedal steel guitar, bringing the instrument into the rock world - has died at the age of 75. I had the pleasure of spending some time with him and Paul Cotton of the band, and I write this with a heavy heart. Young was the voice heard on "Crazy Love," which was probably the band's biggest hit single. Nobody played the way he did - nobody.
