me they hate me. I mean, it’s okay if you don’t like the music, just don’t listen. But don’t call me out and try to pick a fight. But they do, sadly.

the world, but concentrate on the people who love you.

In my opinion, Poco sounds as good as ever, and they sound like the original band as long as you are singing. Well thank you. Like I say, we sell out every- where we play, so we must be doing some- thing right.

There are tons of bands touring with one original member. Sometimes no originals. The Eagles for example. There’s just one Eagle in that band. But as for us, I think the Poco that we have today is a great band. They do justice to the music. And we’re not just playing the old stuff. We are writing new stuff and playing tunes from my solo record. It’s not an oldies tribute band. Like I say, every- one gets to vote. If they don’t go to the shows there won’t be any more shows. But this stuff with people writing online that they don’t like it because there are different people in the band needs to end. It’s a little frustrating. But the silver lining is I know we have more peo- ple who like what we are doing than those who don’t. The detractors are just noisier. I take great comfort in the fact that there are people coming to the shows that we have a history with. We have a great little family, so the few naysayers really don’t bother me. It bother’s Mary, my wife, and I told her we just have to realize there are people like that in

Back in ’79, I was a DJ when “Crazy Love” Came out and it was one of our most requested records. What prompted you to record a new version of the song at this time? Well, I signed on with Blu Elan and have a three-record deal. They are great people to work with. It’s like a family, and all the artists play on each other’s records. And Kirk Pasich, the owner, likes to do that with his artists. He’s a great guy. I played on about 12 differ- ent artists albums. He likes that camaraderie. So, he was talking about the song and how it’s one that everybody knows, and he said ‘Why don’t we do a version with everybody on the label singing along.’ I said ‘great. That sounds like fun,’ and so we did it. That was last Christmas, so this year, I said let’s do it again but with a new song, so I wrote a new one and we recorded it. It’s a really cool song.

Let’s go back a few years to 1967. How did a kid from Denver end up in a West Coast country rock band? Well. I believe that everything in music is a combination of talent and luck and being in the right place at the right time. That was cer- tainly the case with me. A friend of mine from high school – my best friend- went out to the West Coast with a band called The Poor. That was a band with Randy Meisner and a bunch of guys who were big rock stars. They were a really good original band and they got signed. They ended up playing shows with the Buffalo Springfield because they shared the same
