I'm Not Going To Play Your Games Anymore



When listing the most influential bands of the sixties, most people tend to forget The Byrds. They were one of the first groups to combine traditional or contemporary folk songs with electric guitars and drums and later in their career introduced country to the world of rock music. They inspired bands like R.E.M., Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers or Teenage Fanclub and almost everyone (including me) ever to choose a Rickenbacker guitar over one made by Fender or Gibson…

Until he left the band in 1966 – for reasons of, amongst others, fear of flying (!) – Gene Clark was the main songwriter of The Byrds. Although he rejoined the band for one album in 1973, he never again gained much commercial success. He died of drug- and alcohol-related health issues in 1991.

And yes, that is Katey "Peggy Bundy/Leela" Sagal…

The Byrds: Feel A Whole Lot Better

Just remove the .txt-extension from the file name (and leave the .m4a).
I don't know why the server I'm hosting the files on keeps doing that with AAC-files.

Cheers, Netzhaut
