Rosilee St. Nicholas of the WCR talks to South Dakota NewsCenter1 in Rapid City on September 12, 2023 about being in the World Classic Rockers and about Randy Meisner. When she speaks of Randy, it is evident that the two of them had a very special bond and friendship while in the WCR band. The photo above is of Rosilee and Randy’s wife, Lana.
In the news station video below she speaks of being asked to sing Amazing Grace at Randy’s Los Angeles memorial service with Vince Gill. It’s good that Randy’s peers were able to honor him at the Troubadour, where they had all spent so much time in their early years of making music. There were 61 friends in attendance, all specially invited to attend. You can hear a short sample of Rosilee singing Amazing Grace on her website.
An online article from the Dakota Scout site is below. It mentions that Don Henley was the emcee of Randy’s Los Angeles memorial service. Rolling Stone printed that Timothy B. was there, too.
