Rick Roberts (born August 31, 1949, in Florida) is a country rock and classic rock singer-songwriter who recorded with many influential artists over several genres. He is best known for his work with The Flying Burrito Brothers on their 1971 self-titled album, and as a founding member and lead singer of [1 ] Firefall from 1974 to 1981.

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, a member of a later configuration of The Byrds. The band generated controversy through public confusion in relation to the original Byrds, at times being billed as "The Byrds". [2 ] [3 ]
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.
