Is Schmit of German, Austrian or Swiss stock? The name suggests this strongly. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 00:38, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
His father Daniel Schmit supposedly was of "Mexican and Chilean" ancestry. With a family name like Schmit it is highly likely that the first forefather Schmit entering the New World was Germanic. Visual ethnic traits do not exclude family intermarriages with ethnically autochthonous ("Red Indian") Chilean and/or Mexican women. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2003:46:1A12:9558:6971:2768:A37A:9C43 (talk) 11:19, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
Members of The Eagles (Henley, Walsh) are clearly credited on Zevon's final album, The Wind (2003). Supposedly, Schmit (and Henley) contribute(s) backing vocals on the track, She's Too Good for Me. Thoughts? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 05:49, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
