Rick Roberts Biography (Wikipedia)

Rick Roberts (born August 31, 1949, in Florida) is a country rock and soft rock singer-songwriter who recorded with many influential artists over several genres. He is best known as a founding member and lead singer of Firefall from 1974 to 1981, as well as his work with The Flying Burrito Brothers on their 1971 self-titled album,. He also recorded two solo albums, Windmills in 1972 and She Is a Song in 1973.

In 1985, Roberts was a member of "A 20th Anniversary Tribute to The Byrds", a band co-founded by ex-Byrds Gene Clark and Michael Clarke. The group also included former members of The Band, Richard Manuel and Rick Danko, as well as Blondie Chaplin and John York (who originally was Chris Hillman's replacement in The Byrds). The band generated controversy through public confusion in relation to the original Byrds, at times being billed as "The Byrds".

Roberts rejoined his bandmates in Firefall from 1989-1992. He subsequently retired from performing, due to illness. In 2010, he returned to music and released two 4-song-EPs on iTunes and launched his website.
