But, for a while, Chris was in the Byrds with Clarence! And one gig with Gene!

I would've been interested to see where that lineup would've gone...Chris, Roger, Gene, and Clarence.

All the more reason to question the poor judgement of leaving that gig, for one with Gram Parsons..chalk it up to youthful choices

I mean, there was a financial reason for Hillman's departure, too...he was getting ripped off by the Byrds manager...and all...but, in reality, I wonder who's brought Hillman more money, the Burritos or the Byrds. Laughing

I met Chris after a show with Herb Petersen and guest Sally Van Meter on Dobro. I asked him about a Hullabaloo clip of The Byrds I'd recently seen. It was like the wall came down. He said about two words and then dismissed me. I was a little surprised by his reaction, but I guess he has strong feelings about stuff. It was a great concert. I wish I had a recording. Chris became my favorite mandolin player that night. I always was a fan of his bass playing, but his mando playing on those songs was just perfect. He really knows how to play for the song.

I have yet to read the book, but I'll check it out.

"I think Gene and Clarence had a telepathic connection, and Skip was linked to their network."

I tend to agree with you on this....When I saw them play at the Paladieum (is that how you spell it?!!!!) I could see and hear that and I was a spring chicken then but I picked up on it. Gene and Clarence were brain connected and like you say Skip was linked in.
