If you’re an Eagles fan, you for sure know his voice, his bass playing and a beautiful song he’d been working on before he joined the Eagles, “I Can’t Tell You Why”.

Timothy B. Schmitt replaced Eagle, Randy Meisner, in 1977 (read story here). He also replaced Randy in Poco ten years earlier.

He’s had a long, storied career in music; everything from singing David Crosby‘s parts on a CSN album (when Crosby was “indisposed”) to auditioning for the Rolling Stones.

He has over a half dozen solo albums, his last three entirely composed by him.

The list of people he’s played, toured and sang with is filled with notables: Jimmy Buffett, Warren Zevon, Bob Seger, Boz Scaggs, Firefall, Richard Marx, Ringo StarrToto…to name just a few.

It was a real thrill to talk with Timothy B. Schmitt about his new album, Day By Day.

Special guests on this, his 7th solo album, include: Lindsey Buckingham, John Fogerty, Jackson Brown, Kenny Wayne Shephard and more.

I hope you’ll take a listen to the album.
