Career

Rick Roberts (musician) Rick Roberts This Life

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.
