The Byrds werent all things to all people but they made a ferocious trythe band blew from folk to psych to country rock and from line-up to storied line-up across two decades. David Crosby, Kim Fowley, Gram Parsons and Joe Maphis all had parts of varying prominence in the Byrds story, and the discography left behind now is as rewarding as it is bottomless. Tribute band the Byrds Collectiveincluding a Family Guy animator and a sci-fi-alt.-history authorplayed their first gig at the Cellar and return this weekend to try and capture as much of the Byrds as five guys (playing eight roles, and thats without Clarence White!) can possibly capture.
