Timothy B Schmit: “I knew what my place was in the Eagles. I had to fit in.”

Even with helping keep the peace in the Eagles and working for hard taskmasters, he’s lived “a charmed life”

“Sorry I’m a little stammer-y, I’m packing,” explains Timothy B Schmit, who’s getting ready to leave for the airport for a visit to London. The Eagles bassist/vocalist (who replaced Randy Meisner in the band in 1977, after Hotel California) has a superb new solo album, Leap Of Faith, to promote. It’s a diverse record, ranging from country to reggae. “You’ve just got to throw it out there to the universe,” he says, justifying its title. “What’s the worst that can happen? I might have a record that people don’t like.”
