Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
It's about a 90-minute drive southeast from Kansas City, Missouri, down Highway 50 through rolling countryside past numerous pastoral farming communities with odd names like Lone Jack, Pittsville, Knob Noster, and Sedalia to the bustling town of Tipton: population 3,200,give or take a few. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
Thoughtfully written and presented in a friendly manner; this volume gives insight to the life and music of the late, enigmatic Gene Clark. Einarson has compiled his work from interviews of the family, friends and musicians who knew Clark best and woven them together to tell the long overdue story. It has been authorised by the Clark Est. and illustrated with rare black and white photos chronicling his life. Gene Clark was the golden voiced bard of a generation - this book deserves a place in the homes of all music fans and as an introduction for those who have yet to discover the genius, who was so much more than Mr Tambourine Man...

Format: Paperback
You will not read a more heartbreaking book this year. The story of the Byrds' Gene Clark celebrates his unique talents as a singer and songwriter while revealing the emotional/chemical imbalances and addictions which somehow conspired to eventually destroy him. Only 46 when he died, Clark left behind a wonderful and varied body of music. This book has been meticulously researched and written with care and honesty. You feel immense pity for Clark, anger and grief at how he never could quite hold himself together yet also feel sheer admiration for how he always managed to produce beautiful songs and sing with such soul and skill. A sad but gripping story of a troubled but wildly gifted musician and writer. And it makes you want to hear the music. God bless Gene.

Format: Paperback
An excellent read,this book tells Gene's story warts and all but with great respect.it certainly isn't a salacious tabloid hack job concentating only on the more self destructive aspects of his life.I especially liked that there was good background information for each album he was involved with and fond recollections from former bandmates through the years and also input from family members.the good times far outweighed the bad.I don't want to spoil this for any potential buyers by revealing too much but there was a lot of stuff about Gene that I had never known before such as his songwriting process that was fascinating.This book had me searching out his back catalogue to once again marvel at Gene's amazing talent.the only slight disappointment was that there was no discography included in the index.
