Take It to the Limit


It seems Randy Meisner (formerly bass player for the Eagles) has been placed under court-ordered supervision after he allegedly threatening murder/suicide. The news is till breaking, so it’s too soon to have all the details. If this is the case, it’s just a tragic situation. Randy, who sang lead on the Eagles hit “Take It to the Limit,” left the band in 1977, citing exhaustion as the reason. He released two solo albums, “Randy Meisner” (1978) and “One More Song” (1980) and then returned to working as a session player, keeping a low public profile. He did record three more solo albums, though. Another titled “Randy Meisner” in 1982, “Dallas” in 2002, and “Love Me or Leave Me Alone” in 2005.


His solo album “One More Song” contained the hit “Hearts on Fire” and remains a favorite record of mine today. It’s sad to hear about what’s going on in his life now. I hope to see Randy’s personal and legal issues dealt with. It would be great to see him back in action. In the meantime, let’s remember the music.
