Wife of former Eagles bassist, Randy Meisner, has been shot dead at the couple’s home in Studio City, Los Angeles. Lana Rae Meisner, 63, reportedly died hours after police responded to a domestic violence call on Sunday night.


According to sources, Lana Rae called 911 to report that her husband was “acting erratically” and waving a BB gun. Later, police were called back to the house, where Randy said his wife accidentally shot herself while reaching for an item in a darkened closet. An LAPD detective said the incident was “completely accidental“.


Randy Meisner was taken to the hospital on Monday morning after “acting in an altered state“. Meisner, 70, has reportedly been living with bipolar disorder. Last year, he threatened murder-suicide and was subsequently hospitalized.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
