    Nope, you're thinking of Toto (A GREAT studio band named after Dorothy's dog from the Wizard of Oz!). Poco has had many members, most known: Jim Messina of Loggins & Messina, Randy Meisner & Timothy B. Schmit of The Eagles. Best known songs were Crazy Love & Heart of the Night in 1979. Interesting band history, to say the least! Poco - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Originally, the new group was named "Pogo" after the famous comic strip character, but it had to change its name when Pogo creator Walt Kelly objected to their use of the name and threatened to sue.

    I always get Poco and Paco confused. I didn't realize Poco had those heavy hitters in it.

    Vince Gill back at the Opry tonight with Paul Franklin promoting their great new tribute album.
    If you like Merle Haggard and/or Buck Owens, you don't want to miss this- I've heard a couple of songs off it and they are top notch!
