Another part of music history has passed on.  Chris Ethridge, bass player, passed away on April 23.  He was 65.  He was suffering with pancreatic cancer Check out this list of players and bands he worked with, but first, note that he was the bassist for The Flying Burrito Brothers with Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman.  These guys pretty much created the country-rock genre of music.  Chris wrote several songs with the band.

The List

Judy Collins, Leon Russell, Johnny Winter, Randy Newman, Ry Cooder, Linda Ronstadt, The Byrds, Jackson Browne, Willie Nelson, Paul Kantner, The Doors and the list goes on.

About John

I enjoy travel, sports, music and anything else that jumps up at me for the moment, which is why I blog. There will be lots of music and travel posts and a smattering of sports and humour. I enjoy promoting Canada and am unabashedly a proud Canuck.

  1. I liked it…but not amazingly. It is good background music. It seems a lot of musicians have been passing away recently.

  2. 1960’s and 70’s early country rock. The guy was good though and a Burrito song was the appropriate tribute. You are right, lots of great ones leaving us.

  3. Hi,
    It is a great song, with a good beat, it is sad when we lose yet another good artist.

I Would Love To Hear From You
