Remembering Sneaky Pete Kleinow

"Sneaky" Pete Kleinow, the steel guitar player who shaped the Flying Burrito Brothers' groundbreaking country rock sound, has died at the age of 72. He leaves behind an influential musical legacy, both as a Burrito Brother and as a session musician for John Lennon and Jackson Browne. Oddly, he was also a special-effects wizard, contributing to films like The Empire Strikes Back.

If you're not familiar with Kleinow or the Flying Burrito Brothers, you should check out the band's seminal 1969 album, Gilded Palace of Sin. Founded by Kleinow and the Byrds' Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman, the FBB established the alt-country sound that later inspired acts like Uncle Tupelo and Ryan Adams. Listen to "Sin City" from Gilded Palace of Sin below and you'll understand.
