Byrds Home Page (Kenton Adler)
Byrds guiding light Roger McGuinn is very active in
this web site, and has contributed many pictures and some
exclusive sound files, including a monthly folk song
available for downloading. Given the fact that The Byrds
were highly regarded by the Beatles (just listen to
"If I Needed Someone"), you should be sure and
visit this site. The picture files also contain rare
shots of George and Ringo.

interact with one of my heroes in this way. Ah, the

Europe today than it is in America.)

pics and other info.
