Hot Burritos: The True Story of The Flying Burrito Brothers

 
9781906002169: Hot Burritos: The True Story of The Flying Burrito Brothers

Forty years ago, former Byrds Chris Hillman and Gram Parsons released The Gilded Palace Of Sin, the debut album by their new band, The Flying Burrito Brothers. Desperados in sequined Nudie suits fired by a dream to pull rock music back from the psychedelic abyss and return it to its pure and simple country roots, The Flying Burrito Brothers were avatars of a whole new genre that still thrives. Although a connoisseurs choice from the off, that debut and the band's subsequent releases didn't sell too well, but The Flying Burrito Brothers have since transcended cult status to earn universal respect and admiration. Widely regarded as the original country-rock band, you can hear their influence in mainstream mid-70s country-rock (The Eagles, Jackson Browne and Linda Ronstadt) the current crop of Nashville country-pop (Alan Jackson and Brad Paisley), and the whole alt.country/Americana underground. Previously guarded about the group's history, Hillman offers an intimate portrait of his doomed bandmate Gram Parsons, and a colourfully detailed, deeply insightful, hard-hitting and personal account of one of contemporary music's most respected and innovative bands.

Book Description Outline Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Country-rock renegades, outlaws, desperados in sequined Nudie suits on the lam from the commercial music machine with a dream to pull rock music back from the psychedelic abyss and return it to its pure and simple country roots, The Flying Burrito Brothers were avatars of a whole new genre that continues to resonate today. Widely regarded as the original country-rock band, you can hear their influence in the entire mainstream Southern California mid 70s country-rock of artists like the Eagles, J.D. Souther, Jackson Browne and Linda Ronstadt, as well as the current crop of Nashville country-pop including Alan Jackson and Brad Paisley and the alternative No Depression/ alt.country/roots rock/Americana music underground.In the brief four-year span of the original group, The Flying Burrito Brothers have transcended cult status to earn universal respect and admiration. Hot Burritos is the colourfully detailed, deeply insightful, hard-hitting and personal insider account of one of contemporary music s most beloved, respected, innovative and daring maverick bands as told to writer John Einarson by founding Burrito Brother Chris Hillman and other group members and associates.Previously guarded about the group s colourful history, Hillman shatters the myths surrounding the legendary band, taking readers for the first time inside the creative Parsons-Hillman partnership, their notoriously extravagant 1969 train trip tour, country-rock bastions like the Troubadour and Palomino clubs, the doomed Altamont Festival, Festival Express, the Rolling Stones inner circle, Parsons overindulgence and ultimate dismissal, discovering Emmylou Harris, bringing bluegrass-flavoured country rock to ecstatic college crowds, and the legacy the group left behind. Hillman s personal insights into enigmatic icon and friend Gram Parsons offer an intimate portrait of the doomed cult hero who, since his tragic death at age 26, has received an inordinate amount of credit for giving birth to country rock.
