INTERVIEW #4: How Jim Messina Left Poco After Richie Furay Friction. In some ways, in the beginning at least, Poco was a reaction to the ending of Buffalo Springfield. At the end the band had two member who would later be in CSNY Neil Young and Stephen Stills and two that would create Poco – Jim Messina and Richie Furay. We should mention Poco founding member had also been a guest on the last Buffalo Springfield album, “Last Time Around.” which was released in the summer of 1968. Messina produce the first two studio albums from Poco and their first live album. In this clip we talk about why Messina had to leave Poco, some friction with Furay and working in his replacement Paul Cotton.
