The Biography That Never Leaves the Ground
on 13 April 2005
To Byrds fans who own the remastered Byrds discs: you may be tempted to buy this book after seeing Rogan's name in each disc's liner notes. Don't. It's poorly written, uninspiring, and incomplete (350 pages later). On top of all that, Rogan's work is undeniably biased which, to an extent, is understandable. Still, Rogan clearly doesn't understand country music (and the Byrd's later period). Again, this is somewhat understandable- most Brits don't.
If you don't believe me, know this: each Byrd has openly expressed his disallusionment with this work. If I have time, I'll write a Byrds book myself.
