Biography

Before his musical career, Kleinow originally worked as a special effects artist and stop motion animator for movies and television, including the Gumby, and Outer Limits TV series, as well as classic cult movies such as 7 Faces of Dr. Lao and The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm. At night, Kleinow would frequently sit in with Bakersfield Sound-oriented combos and early country-rock aggregations playing the pedal steel guitar; through this scene he became acquainted with Chris Hillman and Gram Parsons of the Byrds, helping the group to replicate their newly country oriented sound onstage with banjoist Doug Dillard. After leaving the Byrds in 1968, Parsons and Hillman invited Kleinow to join their new band, the Flying Burrito Brothers.
