    The book is Hot Burritos - The True Story of the Flying Burrito Brothers by John Einarson with Chris Hillman.

    Page 208, the Burritos were at the Altamont concert and when their set was done, Sneaky Pete, Chris and Jim Dickson left as the security force, the Hell's Angels, was beating up people in the crowd, and had actually come up on the stage when the Jefferson Airplane played and beat up Marty Balin. So the mood was ugly, it was now dark and the Rolling Stones delayed their performance by 2 hours. Gram Parsons(who worshipped the Stones blindly), Michael Clarke and Bernie Leadon stayed behind. Gram kept telling them that they would get to fly out of there in the helicopter with the Stones. When the Stones finally came out the lights came up but they only played a few songs. Bernie recalled being backstage facing the audience and fights breaking out and people would push away from it and then he would see pool cues coming down and somewhere in all this, that guy got killed, on camera and there was such a press of people that he got passed up and laid on the edge of the stage like a sacrifice. It was such an ugly vibe, the Angels were turning meaner, you could see it in their faces. Jagger stopped singing and tried to calm the Angels down but no deal. Gram left the stage with the Stones and ran to the helicopter and got on with them so Michael Clarke and Bernie Leadon were left behind. They started walking and met a couple of girls Bernie knew from L.A. and got in their car and wound up getting back to Sausalito.

    That's a sort of summary of the article with a few quotes, not my own. But Gram by then was pretty far gone into drugs and alcohol and hero worship of the Stones to the exclusion of everyone else. I've got the movie Fallen Angel about him plus several books and Bernie is in the movie being interviewed along with Chris Hillman. Totally fascinating.
    Wow, thank goodness Bernie was good with the ladies, lol. Seriously, how scary, though.

    This is all I have at hand right now, other books are stored in the shed. Some have very little connection with the Eagles, others have paragraphs and chapters about them, but Bernie, surprisingly, is mentioned in a lot of these books about the early years.

    The movie about Gram Parsons is Fallen Angel. It was interesting but reinforced my conviction that Parsons is given way too much credit for fusing country music with rock. He was never a favorite of mine either so my apologies to his fans.
    Wow.

    Nice homework!! Some outstanding reading on that list!

    I'm just reading Twenty Thousand Roads right now, always enjoying reading about Bernie's pre-Eagles rock 'n' roll escapades

    He's like the Waldo of California country rock...everywhere

    This is from a few months ago. Unfortunately, Bernie does not sing lead, but he's on the left playing guitar and looking fit (you can see him when the camera zooms out).

    Bernie looks great. He's always had that rugged charm! He looks fantastic in the 'Hotel California: LA from The Byrds to the Eagles' documentary, too.

    It's a BBC documentary. A friend was kind enough to record it from the TV and send it to me... I don't think you can buy it, although you may be able to find clips online. It features interviews with Linda Ronstadt, Graham Nash, JD Souther, Bernie, David Crosby, as well as some performance footage. Bernie looks great. He's wearing a black t-shirt and looks very rugged and handsome! I'll try to do some screen caps for you tomorrow, unless someone else can in the meantime.

    Well, I just had a quick look and I've found a site where you can watch it. (It says you need to download the Veoh player to watch all of it - not sure if you have to pay or not.) But this clip shows you the beginning. Bernie comes on a couple of minutes in!
