Biography
A contemporary vehicle for country-rock pioneer Chris Hillman (ex-Byrds and Flying Burrito Brothers), the Desert Rose Band formed in 1985 with primary songwriter Hillman on lead vocals, guitar, and mandolin. Other members, culled mainly from southern California session players, included banjoist/guitarist Herb Pedersen, guitarist John Jorgenson, steel guitarist Jay Dee Maness, bassist Bill Bryson, and drummer Steve Duncan. Their first single was a 1986 cover of Johnnie Jack's Ashes of Love, which climbed into the country Top 30. Their self-titled debut album followed in 1987 and spawned a number one hit in He's Back and I'm Blue, plus two more Top Tens in Love Reunited and One Step Forward. 1988's Running produced the number one smash I Still Believe in You, the number two Summer Wind, and the number three She Don't Love Nobody. 1990's Pages of Life brought their final Top Ten hits in Story of Love and Start All Over Again. Major personnel turnover followed; Maness was replaced by steel guitarist Tom Brumley, Jorgenson by guitarist Jeff Ross, and Duncan by drummer Tim Grogan. This lineup recorded three albums -- 1991's True Love and two in 1993, Traditional and Life Goes On -- but failed to duplicate the success of the band's first incarnation. After the Desert Rose Band broke up, Hillman and Herb Pedersen continued to work together on a sporadic basis. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi
