He previously replaced Randy Meisner in the band Poco which he was a member of for many years. In both cases, he was able to slot straight in, and handle the very high harmony vocals that Meisner had been doing in the bands.
His best-known lead vocal is the Eagles song "I Can't Tell You Why".
Live, his voice sounds absolutely fine, though he's starting to look a bit craggy.
I'll be evil and slip in a recommendation for his most recent solo album "Leap of Faith" which IMHO shows that as well as his vocals going from strength to strength, so is his songwriting. It's country-rock very much in the mould of early Eagles albums. EDIT: Though, I now realise this recommendation fits in perfectly with the topic of this thread. He just released the album, and it's very good. Timothy B fans are extremely happy with it. It's on Spotify.
