"Sneaky" Pete Kleinow dies at age 72

I've just learned that steel guitarist "Sneaky" Pete Kleinow, an original member of the Flying Burrito Brothers who was also involved in many of that band's later lineups, has died. He passed away last Saturday, January 6th, from complications caused by Alzheimer's disease. He was 72.

Besides being a frequent member of the Burritos, Kleinow also had a long and distinguished career as a session musician, and also worked in film animation and special effects.

His obituary in the Los Angeles Times is here.
