David Lindley

Best known as Jackson Browne's hippie-dippy multi-instrumental foil and later the leader of offbeat party band El Rayo-X, David Lindley is Southern California rock's maestro of goofy yet stunning eclecticism. Paired with drummer and percussionist Wally Ingram, who did Texas time as a member of Timbuk 3, Lindley has been making the aptly named "twango bango" music that blends global musicality, stoner wit and Lindley's stunning facility on anything with strings into a delightful and delectable free-for-all. It's music that's one toke over all the best lines.
