Description

  1. The 50th Anniversary All-Star Tribute to THE FLYING BURRITO BROS.,has finalized its line-up of a legacy musicians, culled

    from The Who’s Who of Country Rock, Americana & UK classic rock music genres.This is nothing less than a deep dive into

    the origins of contemporary legends like The Eagles, their forbears The Byrds, and their descendants –The Flying Burrito

    Bros.-founded in 1969 by Gram Parsons, Bernie Leadon, Chris Hillman, Sneaky Pete Kleinow, Chris Ethridge and Michael

    Clarke. Parsons, whose early death & Joshua Tree cremation are the stuff of rock myth, resurrected The Byrds with

    his dynamic country & western phrasing on1968’s seminal & influential“Sweetheart of The Rodeo,” following the departure

    of David Crosby & Gene Clark. Parsons then left with Hillman to form The Flying Burrito Bros.

    The band continuedthrough the 1970s, never capturing the Gram Parsons front man dynamic, until 1979 when singer/

    songwriter & multi-instrumentalist Greg Harris was ‘discovered’by stalwarts Kleinow, & then Burritos members

    (Byrds’)bassist Skip Battin & Gib Guilbeau. Greg’sperformance of classic Parsons’ material was uncanny. This era of the

    band, mostly intact, continued into the 1990s. Greg Harris, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and vocalist arrived in LA

    signed to RCA Records in 1977. He worked a short stint in the infamous Palomino Club house band. He did session work for

    everyone from The Everly Brothers, Alabama & Gene Parsons, joining The Flying Burrito Bros.in 1979 and recorded two

    projects, Live in Tokyo in 79’ and The Burrito Bros “Live In Europe” in 86’.Jeff Pevar, sought after guitarist, multi-

    instrumentalist, vocalist -is possibly best known for his touring & recording work with sixties music icons, David Crosby,

    CSN, Phil Lesh & Friends,Joe Cocker,Ray Charles,Jazz is Dead & Jefferson Starship, with whom he played bass for the

    Woodstock 40thAnniversary Tour. He also supportedBette Midler, Rickie Lee Jones and many others. Tony Morley, bassist -

    has amassed such a heady range of credits, it would be impossible to list all of them. Notably, he has toured/ recorded in

    the U.S., Japan, Germany, Italy, France, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Scandinavia with Jefferson Starship and Live Dead

    ‘69Richard Newman, drummer/percussionist is one of Britain’s most in demand musicians. He recently completed a massive
