The Strange Story of Former Eagles Member Randy Meisner
Stories of odd behavior by former Eagles bassist and vocalist Randy Meisner go way back to the days when he was a member of the group. Meisner was a member of the Eagles from 1971 to 1977 and is best known for his soaring vocals at the end of Take it to the Limit, a song he co-wrote and sang.Legend has it that Meisner was fired from the group because he would, from time to time, imagine that he could no longer sing the high notes in the song.
Now it seems that , according to the New York Daily News, the former Eagle is under around-the-clock care and has been appointed a conservator. It's reported that Meisner was very contentious during a recent court hearing and that lead to the appointment of a conservator. According to the new report, it was during the hearing that there were some disturbing allegations about the former Eagles bassist's well-being and recent behavior.
Among that disturbing news was information that included medical records indicating Meisner threatened to shoot hospital staff and end his own life by ingesting all of his medication. It does sound, at least from the evidence known to the public, that Meisner may have some mental issues, but he's not alone in his aberrations.
Earlier this year, a longtime friend of Meisner's by the name of James Newton made a few headlines of his own with accusations about Meisner's wife, Lana. According to Newton, Meisner's wife kept him drunk nearly around the clock because he was easier to control when he was drunk. While that may or may not be true, Lana Meisner is no stranger to strange behavior herself.
Lana has been accused of some pretty bizarre behavior herself. Gossip has it that she has complained about being spied upon. According to the story the people spying on her all wear clown suits.
