Mr. Tambourine Man - The Life and Legacy of The Byrds' Gene Clark is the story of a pivotal figure in the evolution of popular music. A founding member of The Byrds, one of the '60's most influential groups, Gene Clark pioneered several important genres, from folk-rock and psychedelia to country-rock. His songwriting with The Byrds and the subsequent acclaim he received as both a solo artist and member of Dillard & Clark mark Clark as one of rock music's key innovators and visionaries. Yet his troubled life hampered his career at critical junctures, and while revered by a new generation, his legacy remains clouded, his many accomplishments unheralded. This biography helps set the record straight.
Told through the personal recollections, insights, and reflections of those closest to Gene Clark throughout his life and career, Mr. Tambourine Man offers a rare glimpse into one of America's greatest groups, The Byrds, as well as a revealing portrait of life at the center of the '60s and '70s pop maelstrom.
Chris Hilman, former Byrds bassist, said "I lived with this man and I worked with him throughout his career, but I never really knew Gene Clark until I read John Einarson's comprehensive study"
