Poco is an American country rock band formed by Richie Furay (vocals and rhythm guitar) and Jim Messina (lead guitar and vocals) following the demise of Buffalo Springfield in 1968. Other original members were Rusty Young (pedal steel, banjo, dobro, guitar, and vocals), George Grantham (drums and vocals) and Randy Meisner (bass and vocals).
The first album Pickin' Up the Pieces was significantly delayed, and due to internal squabbling Meisner left the group before it was released, shortly thereafter becoming a founding member of The Eagles. Timothy B. Schmit subsequently replaced Meisner in the band. Poco (1971) and Deliverin
