The Byrds were one of the '60s most influential bands. After virtually inventing folk-rock, they pioneered psychedelia and country-rock, and were also the first guitar rock band to use synthesizers. The Byrds story is unravelled here, as it happened, day-by-day – from the band's formation and breakthrough hit in 1965 to the brief reunion of the original line-up in 1972/1973. Drawing on hundreds of lost and previously undiscovered sources, not to mention a wealth of previously unseen photos, it is a gripping chronicle of the life and times of this seminal band.
