Personalities | The Flying Burrito Brothers | Seventies | Rock

(Vocal group, 1969–99)

Having invented country rock in The Byrds, Chris Hillman and Gram Parsons (both guitar, vocals) formed The Burritos to further explore its possibilities, recruiting pianist/bassist Chris Ethridge and guitarist ‘Sneaky’ Pete Kleinow. The Gilded Palace Of Sin (1969) featured some of Parsons’ finest work but he was sacked after 1970’s Burrito Deluxe. Bernie Leadon and former Byrds drummer Michael Clarke joined and, in 1972, Hillman departed a constantly shifting line-up.
