Item description for So You Want to Be a Rock 'n' Roll Star: The Byrds Day-by-Day 1965-1973 by Christopher Hjort & Joe McMichael...

A diary inspired by the Byrds documents the process through which they wrote such hits as "Mr. Tambourine Man" and "Turn! Turn! Turn!," their relationships with such contemporary artists as the Rolling Stones and Tina Turner, and the internal battles that resulted in the replacements of original band members. Original.

Publishers Description
In 1965, the Byrds had a worldwide smash with "Mr. Tambourine Man," hung out with the Beatles, undertook a disastrous tour of Great Britain, and capped the year with a second U.S. hit, "Turn! Turn! Turn!" In 1972, the original lineup reunited for recording purposes, while a different touring Byrds played a final concert in February 1973. In between, they released the groundbreaking "Eight Miles High" single and a clutch of classic albums despite internal battles and lineup changes that would have wrecked most bands. In their case, the chaos only fueled leader Roger McGuinn's creative juices. Their influence has been felt everywhere from the chiming Rickenbackers and the harmonies of REM and Tom Petty to just about every alt-country and Americana act on the scene. This daily diary, featuring such rock legends as the Rolling Stones and Tina Turner, is a raw, personal glimpse of the band that invented folk rock and popularized psychedelia and country rock.
