Most Successful Rock Musician-Timothy B. Schmit
Heís arguably the most high-profile, successful musician to come out of this town. In the í60s, he was a member of The New Breed, which had a number of regional hits. Renamed Glad, that band eventually split, with Schmit accepting an invitation from Richie Furay (formerly of Buffalo Springfield, which counted Neil Young and Stephen Stills as members) to join Furayís new band, Poco. That stint with the legendary country-rock band led to yet another invitation, in 1977, to join the Eagles. As bassist for the band that has the distinction of recording the best-selling American album of all time (Eagles Greatest Hits, 1971-1975), Schmit played and sang on Eagles recordings Hell Freezes Over and The Long Run, an album that includes his own chart-topping composition "I Canít Tell You Why." As one of the most sought-after studio vocalists in Los Angeles, Schmit has sung on Toto tracks such as "Africa" and "I Wonít Hold You Back," Steely Danís "Rikki Donít Lose That Number," and "Wasted on the Way" with Crosby, Stills & Nash. "When we practiced in our mothersí garages, we used to dream about this stuff," reminisces Schmit, who counts among his biggest thrills playing in Ringo Starrís touring band and cutting a track with boyhood heroes and Sacramento favorites The Beach Boys.
