Happy 10th Anniversary

Postby ctlegend » Wed Oct 01, 2014 10:14 am

Today marks the 10th anniversary that I saw Poco for the 1st time. As an avid fan since about the 8th grade, I was about to see my heroes for the very first time. I had every album and knew every song as I had studied the records and they became intertwined into the depths of my soul.
The venue was Wildwood Springs Lodge in Steelville, MO. The atmosphere was casual and I was bursting with excitement. We roll up to WSL at about 1:30 in the afternoon and who would pull up right beside us in the circular parking lot... Rusty Young. It was quite a thrill to meet Rusty. Paul and Jack arrived later.
Poco certainly did not disappoint this fan as the live shows were even better than the albums I grew up with. The shows were spectacular and Richie even guested on the Saturday show for an added treat. I began following the Poco touring schedule as though it were an addiction. For the next 5-6 years Patty and I saw Poco about 45 times with the October shows at WSL an annual trip the 1st weekend in Oct. Many friends and acquaintances were made during that time, too numerous to mention. From New York City to Tuscan, AZ and Weston, FL to Osh Kosh, WI and many points in between we went to see Poco. It was a fun ride with plenty of good-time memories. This post would not be complete without a Happy 10th wedding anniversary to Rusty & Mary who were married at WSL on that weekend, on Oct. 3.
Thanks to all for the great memories.
