Subject: RE: Who is your favorite band ???
Yes, Desert Rose has both Chris Hillman and Herb Pedersen, which brings me to another favorite - the Dillards. And this brings me to another favorite, long gone but not forgotten, Dillard and Clark. That is Doug Dillard and Gene Clark, which brings me back to the Byrds.

Back in college (the first time), there were three groups that were extremely influential - The Byrds, the Buffalo Springfield and Moby Grape. All heavy on harmony and major key guitar licks. I have always had a soft spot in my head for jangly guitar; the Beatles and the Hollies sere right at the top of that kind of music (along with the Byrds, again). It seems that you find the descendants of that kind of music in the country/country rock field these days. Desert Rose is just that kind of band.

Let me throw one more out there - The ArcAngels out of Austin, Texas. Stevie Ray's rhythm section and two great singer/guitarists. This is hard hitting stuff.

oh yeah, and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers.
