The Byrds - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (867 words)
Bridging the gap between the socially and spiritually conscious folk music of Bob Dylan and the complex pop of The Beatles, The Byrds are considered one of the most important and influential bands of the 1960s.
The Byrds were founded in Los Angeles, California in 1964 by singers and guitarists Jim McGuinn (he later changed his name to Roger McGuinn), Gene Clark, and David Crosby.
Their 1968 The Notorious Byrd Brothers, which featured compositions by the group as well as by Gerry Goffin and Carole King, is today regarded as their masterpiece.
The Byrds (1022 words)
The Byrds adhered so closely to the country/bluegrass format that they are virtually just another country/bluegrass band, albeit one with good taste and heavy drums.
There is little point to pushing the Byrds as progenitors of a music that already existed, no matter how well they emulated it (reference points being the Dillards, Merle Haggard, early rockabilly, and the country elements found in many standard 60’s folk albums).
Byrds, Ballad of Easy Rider, Byrdmaniax, Farther Along - are loaded too heavily with proficiently played cover tunes without much of an interpretive slant, even as the band attempted to slip back into a harder approach to folk rock and roll.
