Overview

(Book). 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. Hot Burritos is the first ever biography of the band, as told to writer John Einarson by founding Burrito Chris Hillman and other group members and associates. 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.

    Burritohead love

    I highly recommend this read as an entertaining account of The Flying Burrito Bros’ saga. It’s major appeal to me is that it spreads the Burritohead love around to all the characters involved. I am familiar with and have an avid interest in all these guys. The book’s major flaw is that, while I agree with the point made in the introduction that the FBBs are so much more than Gram Parsons, Einarson & Hillman feel this is an axe that needs constant grinding to the bitter end of the book. Gram bashing is not a classy way to make the point and will be a deal breaker to a lot of fans, who would otherwise love this book. Too bad.
