Sometimes you just have to change a “G” to a “C”. We aren’t referring to musical notes here.
On Nov. 18, 1968, a new band made its debut at The Troubadour in Los Angeles. The band was formed by five musician who were all pretty well know in the LA music scene. The name of the band was “Pogo”, which was taken from the famous comic strip character by Walt Kelly. Kelly didn’t like the idea and filed a suit to stop the band from using the name.
The five musicians were Randy Meisner, Jim Messina, Richie Furay, George Grantham, and Rusty Young. They changed the “G” in the name “Pogo” with and “C” to become “Poco”.
Pogo / Poco’s first show, 49 years ago today. So we guess it fair to say “Happy Birthday to ‘Poco’!!!!
