Like many stories of the counter culture generation Clarks is one of tragedy and yet throughout his troubled life he managed to produce a series of country masterpieces not least one of the greatest albums in the whole canon 1974's "No Other". It is typical of Clark that it also includes one of the ugliest album covers on any famous record. Gene Clark had psychological hang ups so severe that they emotionally and professionally crippled him. His love life was tumultuous and often chaotic, but even worse for a performer his stage fright was legendary in its debilitating impact. His friends and family give eloquent testimony in Einarson's book of the agonies which he went through especially if any song went wrong which would see him turn to copious amounts of booze and pills leading to anarchic performances. Equally problematic for the writer of "Eight Miles high" was a fear of flying which meant that he couldn't venture out into the wide open spaces of the US and effectively tour and promote his albums.Read more ›
