The Byrds - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2644 words)
Bridging the gap between the socially and spiritually conscious folk music of Bob Dylan and the fresh sounding hybrid pop of The Beatles, The Byrds are widely considered to have been one of the most important and influential bands of the 1960s.
In June 1967, The Byrds played a ragged set at the Monterey Pop Festival, during which Crosby proceeded to utter both pro-drug and JFK assassination conspiracy statements, to the annoyance of the other band members.
The Byrds were now a duo but quickly recruited Hillman's cousin, Kevin Kelley, as drummer and then, in a fateful decision for their future career-direction, hired Gram Parsons to play keyboards.
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.
