The Flying Other Brothers were an American rock band from 1997-2006 in San Francisco. The band played original tunes and covers.
The band started at an Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) benefit at the [Fillmore Auditorium] in 1997. At this time the band included Roger McNamee, a venture capitalist; Giles McNamee, investment banker, board member of EFF and Roger's brother; guitarist Bert Keely of Microsoft; Bill Bennett, a marketing and communications strategest; and Tony Bove (rechristened "TBone"), author of books about computers and the Internet. The band had its roots in acoustic performances Roger and Giles McNamee gave as the Other Brothers in lounges around New England during the early 1980s.
