Poco - A bit pressured

Risen up out of the remains of Buffalo Springfield: Richie Roe and Jim Messina could not stop playing music of course.

And that is how things sometimes go: Poco became a springboard for The Eagles when band members Randy Meisner and Timothy B. Schmit walked out to join the future super group of Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Glen Frey.

How did Poco get the band name - Pogo cartoon - Walt KellyPoco was first called Pogo, after the cartoon character drawn by Walt Kelly. But as happens to so many bands that blatantly steal their names: legal threats followed, in this case of the copyright holders of the brand name Pogo.

So then it became Poco, as Spanish people say when they mean 'a little'.

Active: 1968-present, USA
