It's a Byrd, it's... oh wait, it's just plain old Chris Hillman. After leaving The Byrds, Hillman got folded into the Flying Burrito Brothers, resurfaced in the Souther-Hillman-Furay Band, reunited with Roger McGuinn, launched a solo career later than most and finally formed the Desert Rose Band. With all that moving around, Hillman has never been a commercial force like McGuinn or David Crosby. (Okay, so Crosby is just a force.) Hillman's music in the '70s was your standard sub-Eagles stuff, no better or worse than Jay Ferguson. Recently he's returned to his folk roots, as has McGuinn, proving that all Byrds come back to the nest eventually. I've cobbled together a little discography of his solo releases: chris_hillman.pdf (rev. 09/06).
