Was saddened to learn that one of the founding members of the “country/rock” group The Flying Burrito Brothers, has died. Teaming up with Gram Parsons, formerly of the Byrds, The Flying Burrito Brothers were a smasher right out of the gate in ’69.
Ethridge left “FBB” after their first LP, The Gilded Palace of Sin (#192 on Rolling Stone magazine’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time), where his guitar licks can be heard on the super songs “Hot Burrito #1″ and “Hot Burrito #2″. He later worked with such notables as Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt and Arlo Guthrie.
Chris Ethridge was 65 when he left us on Monday, and like so many others before him, his influence on music will always be remembered.
