 “A Review of The Byrds: Folk Rockers and Innovators” 

The pioneers of folk rock and country rock, the Byrds combined harmony, an electric 12 string guitar, and thought provoking lyrics. They were influenced by The Beatles, but they also fascinated The Beatles. The Timmons Brothers review the legacy of a band from the original five of McGuinn, Crosby, Hillmam, Gene Clark and Michael Clarke (who were inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 1991) to several shifts of changing personnel. Through the changes, they continued to be innovators with their sound. A rare combination of combining commercial success with Top Forty singles while extending rock into new underground areas, the story of the Byrds is as interesting as their freshness in their music to this day.
