Randy Meisner, Eagles Founding Member, Dead at 77

Randy meisnerFounding member of The Eagles, Randy Meisner, has died at age 77. The singer and bassist co-founded the group in 1971 with Don Henley, Glenn Frey, and Bernie Leadon, but left the bank in 1976 shortly after recording Hotel California.

“I could have tripled my money if I’d stayed,” Meisner told PEOPLE in 1981. “But I was just tired of the touring. It’s a crazy life that you live at twice the normal speed. When it got to the point of sanity or money… I thought I’d rather have sanity.”

Meisner performed with the band at their 1998 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction and was invited on the 2013 world tour but declined due to his health.
