David Lindley (born 1944 in San Marino, California) is an American guitarist and multi-instrumentalist (his instruments include a variety of stringed instruments such as banjo, lap steel guitar, violin, oud, cittern, bouzouki, saz, and cÃ¼mbÃ¼ş). During 1966 to 1970 he was part of the eclectic psychedelic band Kaleidoscope. He is well-known as a "lead guitarist for hire," particularly for West Coast rock musicians of the 1970s, having played with Jackson Browne (for which work he is probably most known), Warren Zevon, Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor, Bob Dylan, and Rod Stewart. He has also collaborated with fellow guitarists Ry Cooder and Henry Kaiser, and leads his own band, 'El Rayo X.'
