congrats on 16 great years though...
My lil' dog Texas passed away today. He was 16 years old, he remembered the old days. God bless and keep our animal friends. Let's cherish them in the present and the past. Thanks for letting me share my loss. Cheers fellow music lovers!
Chris Ethridge died April 23, 2012, at 65, in Meridian, Mississippi from pancreatic cancer. Chris played bass guitar and was a member of The Flying Burrito Brothers, along w Gram Parsons, Byron Berline, Al Perkins, Sneaky Pete Kleinow and Chris Hilman. Hot Burrito #2 was one of his country rock compositions. I wore out my vinyl album "Last of the Red Hot Burritos", a live recording with "Don't Let Your Deal Go Down", "Six Days on the Road" and a good version of "Orange Blossom Special". His first band was the International Submarine Band, with Parsons and Hilman, evolving into the Burritos. Chris did a lot of studio work with many other musicians, like Ry Cooder, Leon Russell, Jackson Browne and Linda Ronstadt. He toured with Willie Nelson for a few years, too.
and sorry for your loss
Spare a few thoughts please for the Cambodian environmental activist and very brave man, murdered this week by military police while he was documenting illegal logging. I worked with him a lot. His death is another sad blow to the protection of Cambodia's forests and to the fight against totalitarianism and kleptocracy.
Sad, sad news, a real rock pioneer and one of the first singing drummers, loved this guy and his music, so sad, RIP Levon, it's ok, you can put the load on me.
