Flying Burrito Brothers: Older Guys

October 16, 2006

This is not one of the Flying Burrito Bros greatest songs, no, it’s just a lazy ol’ blues song. Why they chose THIS song for a video, and not something from the first album, I’ll never know. But check out Gram Parsons. For you Rufus fans out there, you’ll see a similar geekyness between Rufus and Gram.

Gram seems so gay in this video (he was not as far as I know). The curly head guy is Bernie Leadon, later with the Eagles. Chris Hillman (bass) and Michael Clarke (drums) were both former Byrds. Halfway through the video you’ll see Sneaky Pete Kleinow playing pedal steel.
