Bob is joined by Timothy B. Schmit, bassist and vocalist from Poco and The Eagles.
He performs acoustic songs from his first solo album in eight years 'Expando', which includes contributions from Graham Nash, Kid Rock, Dwight Yoakam and Keb' Mo'.
Schmit joined the country rock band Poco in 1970 and in 1977 became bassist with The Eagles. On the 1979 album The Long Run, Schmit co-wrote and sang lead on the song "I Can't Tell You Why". When the band broke up in 1980 he started a solo career, and became a sought after session musician, appearing on hit records with Bob Seger, Boz Scaggs, Toto, Richard Marx and Don Henley. When the Eagles reunited in 1994 Schmit sang lead vocals on 'Love Will Keep Us Alive', from their new album Hell Freezes Over. He has won three Grammy awards and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the Eagles.
