Randy Meisner, a founding member of the famous American folk-rock band Eagles, has died at the age of 77, it has been revealed. Wednesday night in Los Angeles, people heard the news.
In a statement, the Eagles confirmed that the bassist and singer, who was 77 years old, had died. He died of the effects of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
In their statement, the Eagles talk about how important Randy is by saying that he was “important to the early success of the band.” Also, they say that the range of his voice was “amazing,” which you can hear in his famous song “Take It to the Limit.”
Meisner was known for adding his voice to famous songs like “Take It Easy” and “The Best of My Love.” Take It to the Limit, which he sang with a lot of emotion, is one of the band’s most well-known songs.
Meisner has been through a lot of hard times in recent years, but the worst was when his wife, Lana Rae Meisner, was accidentally shot and killed in 2016.
Don Felder called him “the sweetest man in the music business,” and in the early 1970s, he joined Don Henley, Glenn Frey, and Bernie Leadon to form a classic Los Angeles band that became one of the most famous groups of all time.
From country rock to hard rock, the Eagles had a lot of hits in the next 10 years, starting with “Take It Easy” and continuing with “Desperado,” “Hotel California,” and “Life in the Fast Lane.” They made two of the most popular albums of all time, Hotel California and Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975).
