    I've always been a big fan of Chris Hillman, much more than Parsons. I always felt he never got the credit he has deserved, especially as he has gotten lost in the shadow of the Grevious Angels Legend-A shame, as his body of work over the last 45 years is pretty incredible.

    Great book about the Burrito brothers! All burrito fans will love!

    The book wasn't kind to Parsons, but wasn't unfair to him, either. He's clearly had his fair share of analysis and morbid fascination. I felt like the book went out of its way sometimes to dismiss the quality of the first two albums, especially Burrito Deluxe (certainly more deservedly), and makes it unanimous that the early line-up couldn't play, especially GP, but also Michael Clarke. The book actually becomes more enjoyable towards the end when GP's more or less out of the picture and the ban [...]

    While this book was interesting in its treatment of a small piece of popular music, an opportunity was missed to expand the purview beyond the period of three years during which Chris HIllman was in the Flying Burrito Brothers. The FBB were a (now) legendary band, among the pioneers of country rock, and overshadowed by the myth of Gram Parsons. But Hillman has a much larger story to tell--as one of the founding members of the Byrds, and subsequent to the demise of the Burritos, a reasonably succ [...]

    John Einarson, a superb rock biographer, and Chris Hillman, the musician who founded the Flying Burrito Brothers with Gram Parsons, give us the unvarnished story of the band. The book is not a glorified tale of the legendary tragic myth of Parsons; Hillman refuses to be sucked into the doomed cult hero persona that envelops his former bandmate. He is unflinching in his reflections about Parsons.This is a well-rounded account of the many incarnations the band underwent as Hillman persevered with [...]

    Excellent book for fans of the Flying Burrito Brothers Fans of Gram Parsons or the (non-flying) Burrito Brothers might need a cautionary note however. From what I recall of the time -- this book seems pretty accurate - it could have used a diligent copy editor to remove redundancies. A good book for those interested in the history of Country Rock music.

    Excellent account of the rise and fall of The Flying Burrito Brothers. Written with extensive cooperation from Chris Hillman, so it's coming straight from the horse's mouth. I loved the book. A very fun read.

    Richard
    Tells the FFB story from Chris Hillman's p.o.v. Tries & often succeeds in debunking the GP legend. It's long and at times tedious. But essential for hardcore fans like me.

    Jim Miller
    A great book of excruciating details about Gram Parsons, Chris Hillman, and their lives in their bands.

    Awesome. I learned a whole lot about some of my favorite bands and artists by reading this book. A must for any fan of the genre. Maybe a little biased against Gram.

    Daniel
    This book should have been subtitled "That damn Gram!" since the main purpose of it seems to be to trash the reputation of Gram Parsons.
