From the 60's.... the new millenium

Ready to take a journey back in time?...Well, here goes... This "History Lesson" has been researched from various recordings, books, internet searches & communications, discussions with Paul, other band members, & fans of Paul Cotton & Poco. What follows is by no means perfect & is at times slightly off topic. However, Paul’s history prior to Poco has been sadly lacking in documentation & hopefully this work in progress will provide some insight into the early history of one of the great singer, songwriter, guitarists of our time…Paul Cotton.
