Chris Ethridge, a founding member of The Flying Burrito Brothers, has died.

Chris Ethridge left the FBBs after the group recorded its first album, "The Gilded Palace of Sin”, in 1969.

He eventually returned to work as a studio and touring musician, playing with The Doors, Linda Ronstadt, Ry Cooder, Randy Newman, Jackson Browne, Arlo Guthrie, and many others.

He also participated in the revival of the Flying Burrito Brothers in 1975, playing bass on one of the two LPs they released in the mid-seventies (Flying Again).

He also played on ex-Byrds and ex-Flying Burrito Brothers members' solo albums (Roger McGuinn, Gene Clark, Dillard & Clark, David Crosby, The International Submarine Band...).

He co-wrote three of Gram Parsons' best songs: "Hot Burrito #1", "Hot Burrito #2" and "She".

He was also a member of the L.A. Getaway among many others.

His last contribution to The Flying Burrito Brothers was some vocals on the "Eye Of The Hurricane" CD from 1994.
