Timothy B. Schmit, who left little to join the Eagles in 1977, will meet with former band when they are inducted into the Hall of Fame of Colorado at Denver Paramount Theater on January 9.
"Tim has been an artist full of grace for decades," said Colorado Music Hall of Fame President Chuck Morris in a statement (via Reverb). "And I am delighted that he will be part of our program and help make history in front of music fans of Colorado."
Schmit joined shortly after the release of his debut in 1969 "Pickin 'Up the Pieces", replacing original bassist Randy Meisner which, coincidentally, resigned to help train the Eagles. Although associated with country-rock scene in LA, pedal steel guitarist Rusty Young and drummer George Grantham hail of Denver, and the rest of the band followed to Colorado in 1971.
Harvest of new members at the Music Hall of Fame in Colorado this year are practically a Who's Who of '70s bands that mixed country and soft rock. Besides Little, Stephen Stills' Manassas, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Firefall will be honored for their contributions.
