The Flying Burrito Brothers was an early country rock band, best known for its influential debut album, 1969's [i]The Gilded Palace of Sin[/i]. Although the group is most often mentioned in connection with country rock legends [a=Gram Parsons] and [a=Chris Hillman], the group underwent many personnel changes. [a=Chris Hillman] and [a=Al Perkins] joined [a=Manassas], while [a=Byron Berline], [a=Roger Bush] and [a=Kenny Wertz] formed [a=Country Gazette]. Roberts reassembled a new group for a 1973 European tour, and then began a solo career before forming [a=Firefall] with [a=Michael Clarke]. Through numerous incarnations (nearly all with Beland at the helm), the band released albums and toured throughout the 1980s and '90s. The latter day Flying Burrito Brothers CDs, produced by Beland, did feature an impressive line-up of guests, including [a=Merle Haggard], [a=Buck Owens], [a=Waylon Jennings], [a=Alison Krauss], [a=Ricky Skaggs], [a=Charles Louvin], and others. The band's final two CDs, [i]California Jukebox[/i] and [i]Sons Of The Golden West[/i], received solid critical reviews. However, Beland finally called it quits for the band in 2000, and embarked upon a successful career as a record producer. Sneaky created a Burritos spin-off in his new band [i]Burrito Deluxe[/i], which featured [i]Carlton Moody[/i] on lead vocals and [a=Garth Hudson] from the band on keyboards. The band scored no chart success, relying solely on live appearances in Europe. Pete left the band due to illness in 2005, leaving no direct lineage to any of the actual Flying Burrito Brothers members, past or present.

Members included: Gram Parsons, Chris Hillman, "Sneeky" Pete Kleinow, Chris Ethridge, Michael Clarke, Bernie Leadon.
