The Flying Burrito Brothers

The Flying Burrito Brothers helped forge the connection between rock and country, and with their 1969 debut album, The Gilded Palace of Sin, they virtually invented the blueprint for country-rock. Though the band's glory days were brief, they left behind a small body of work that proved vastly influential both in rock and country. The Flying Burrito Brothers reunited later in the '70s, albeit without their founding members Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman, and continued performing and recording in a variety of incarnations into the '80s.

Originally, the Flying Burrito Brothers were a group of Los Angeles musicians who gathered together to jam. Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman took the band's name when they were forming their own band after leaving the Byrds. Parsons had helped steer the Byrds toward a country direction during his brief stint with the band, as captured on the 1968 album Sweetheart of the Rodeo. Following the release of Sweetheart, he left the Byrds, followed shortly afterward by Hillman. The duo added pedal steel guitarist "Sneaky" Pete Kleinow and bassist Chris Ethridge to the band and set about recording their debut album with a variety of session drummers.

The Gilded Palace of Sin, the Flying Burrito Brothers' debut album, was released in the spring of 1969. Although the album only sold 40,000 copies, the band developed a devoted following, which happened to include many prominent musicians in Los Angeles, Bob Dylan, and the Rolling Stones. Around this time, Parsons and Stones guitarist Keith Richards became good friends, which led to Parsons losing interest in the Burritos. Before the band recorded their second album, Ethridge left the band and was replaced by Bernie Leadon, and the group hired ex-Byrd Michael Clarke as their permanent drummer.

Burrito Deluxe, the group's second album, was released in the spring of 1970. After its release, Gram Parsons left the group and was replaced by Rick Roberts, a local Californian songwriter. Roberts' first album with the band, The Flying Burrito Brothers, was released in 1971. After its release, Kleinow left the band to become a session musician and Leadon departed to join the Eagles. The Burritos hired pedal steel guitarist Al Perkins and bassist Roger Bush to replace them, as well as adding guitarist Kenny Wertz and fiddler Byron Berline to the lineup. This new version of the group recorded the live album The Last of the Red Hot Burritos, which was released in 1972. Before its release, the band splintered apart. Berline, Bush, and Wertz all left to form Country Gazette, while Hillman and Perkins joined Manassas. Roberts assembled a new band to tour Europe in 1973 and then dissolved the group, choosing to pursue a solo career. Roberts would later form Firefall with Michael Clarke.

Close Up the Honky Tonks, a double-album Flying Burrito Brothers compilation, was released in 1974 because of the burgeoning interest in Gram Parsons. Capitalizing on the collection and the cult forming around Parsons, Kleinow and Ethridge formed a new version of the Flying Burrito Brothers in 1975. The duo recruited Floyd "Gib" Gilbeau (vocals, guitar, fiddle), bassist Joel Scott Hill, and drummer Gene Parsons and recorded Flying Again, which was released on Columbia Records in 1975.

Ethridge left the band after the release of Flying Again; he was replaced by Skip Battin, who appeared on the 1976 album Airborne. Also in 1976, a collection of Gram Parsons-era outtakes entitled Sleepless Nights was released on A&M Records.

For the two decades following their 1975 reunion, the Flying Burrito Brothers performed and recorded sporadically, undergoing the occasional lineup change. In 1979, the group released Live From Tokyo on Regency Records; the album spawned their first country hit, a cover of Merle Haggard's "White Line Fever," which hit the charts in 1980. Also in 1980, the group abbreviated its name to the Burrito Brothers when they signed a contract with Curb Records. The Burrito Brothers' Hearts on the Line spawned three minor country chart hits in 1981. Sunset Sundown, the Brothers second Curb album, appeared in 1982 and like its predecessor, it produced three minor hits. Following the release of Sunset Sundown, Kleinow left the band to become an animator and special-effects creator in Hollywood. The group carried on without him, led by Gib Gilbeau and John Beland. That incarnation of the band fell apart in 1985, the same year that Kleinow assembled yet another version of the band. For the next three years, this incarnation of the Flying Burrito Brothers toured America and Europe. In 1988, the group split apart again, although it did occasionally reunite for further tours and recordings in the '90s, including 1999's Sons of the Golden West. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Rock was only returning to its country roots in 1969. Rockabilly was the original alloy of country and rock back in the early 1950s. It took a few years for rock to return to its country roots. The 1960s brought trust fund kids living in LA pretending to be country.

RIP Sneaky Pete Kleinow and Graham Parsons. Thank you for the Flying Burrito Bros. despite a too short existence. The Gilded Palace of Sin is a fantastic album that demonstrates what country rock should really sound like.

RIP Gram Parsons

What about Bernie Leaden? He was a part of the FBBrothers before he joined the early iteration of the Eagles and carried over his acoustic flavor with him - a similar sound he brought to the FBB. He's def a necessity in any article.

Ran into the Burritos at a Stucky's Resturant off I-80 on my way back to College. I had just seen them at the Main Point outside of Philly a few nights earlier. Not sure who all the members were at that time. It was around 1977-78. What a pleasure meeting them on the road.

I saw the Flying Burrito Bros. open for Ten Years After, summer of 1970. A great show featuring a lot of musicians who were already legendary and those on their way to that status
Report as inappropriate
I'm quite sure that Bernie Leadon was the guitarist and not the bass player. Speaking of Poco, Randy Meisner was Poco's first bass player, who left to form the Eagles, while Timothy B. Schmidt replaced Meisner in both Poco and the Eagles.

I love Gram Parsons but Chris Hillman seems to get lost in the comments and the bio. the bio even give parson's sole credit for Byrds move towards country in Sweetheart when Hillman got him into the band for to have an ally in a more country direction. Guess it pays to be a trust fund baby who dies young.
Again I love Gram he had a wonderful voice that sang country with a soul dimension, but Chris Hillman was as important to Flying Burrito and just to shy to get the attention.

Wish i had a Trust Fund Blues....RIP GRAM
