This Byrd Has Flown: Chris Hillman comes to the Coach House

Bill Wasserzieher, OC Weekly, August 1997

ROCK & ROLL HALL of Famer Chris Hillman has played in bands with religious proselytizers, trust-fund dopers and even a matricidal drummer who heard voices and made himself motherless. Hillman's been in the Byrds, the Burritos, Manassas with Stephen Stills; a middle and a last name in Souther-Hillman-Furay and McGuinn, Clark & Hillman, and most recently the leader of Desert Rose. He's more than earned the protracted breather he’s been on recently.
