Sing-a-Long Saturday – The Byrds — One of the most Influential Bands of the 60’s

Jan 09, 2011 by Lisa Newton

Originating from Los Angeles in 1964, “The Byrds” are considered by critics to be one of the most influential bands of the 1960s. Initially, they pioneered the musical genre of folk rock, melding the influence of The Beatles and other British Invasion bands with contemporary and traditional folk music.

Several ex-member of the band went on to have enormous success of their own, either as solo artists or part of a band—especially David Crosby, who along with Steven Stills and Neil Young, quickly became musical superstars, due to the high quality of their songs, their distinct music and imagery, wherein they firmly embrace many melodic and lyrical sounds for their records and recording.

For sure; along with the uniquely talented and gifted, David Crosby and Steven Stills, many other unreleased demos shall remain immortal not only us– the baby boomers– but as well for our children, because which for many of us means helping people that are different –we’ll see how their art works out for them because we’re reaching and grasping our own demographic base, which during the Cinema period didn’t matter very much, except for the media moguls.

Many of us have helped to define a new era in Congress– which we’ll continue to monitor—and make them transparent as they work for us, and not the opposite, so we also understand that our nation now has a myriad of problems—censorship of art and artists must come to a halt.

On January 16, 1991, The Byrds, were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, where the 5 original members performed for the last time. The band had a lot of band member change -ups spanning the few years of its existence; a time and place in Rock & Roll history that is still loved, and as the period of when some of its greatest musicians and bands seized our raw senses, sensibilities, and ability to relate to the arts and people.

McGuinn, Crosby, and Hillman still remain active but Gene Clark died of a heart attack in 1991, and Michael Clarke died of liver failure in 1993.

Here is a video of The Byrds, singing—you guessed correctly—a rendition of Bob Dylan’s song, Mr.Tambourine Man:
