Monday April 19, 2021 – A Colorado music legend passed away last week. Poco founding member and sole remaining original member of the band, Rusty Young passed away last week at the age of 75. Rusty’s Colorado origins go back to the mid-sixties when he and future Poco drummer and vocalist George Grantham were in the psychedelic rock band Boenzee Cryque. I’ll pay tribute to Rusty in the next episode of the show, airing April 24-30.
