I've been getting really into the Byrds recently--I've always loved their Greatest Hits and have a soft spot for the debut and 5D, but didn't explore the rest of their catalogue or know much about their back story. I just learned that Crosby forced Clark out of the rhythm guitar role, and possibly was a major factor in Clark's leaving the band. I thought the forum might know: - Any recordings of the band with Clark on rhythm? I've always thought Crosby's rhythm playing was an underrated, crucial aspect of the Byrds' sound. - Can anyone shed more light on what Crosby was bullying Clark about? Why did he single Gene out--jealousy? Was it mainly Crosby plus fear of flying that led Clark to leave, or did Clark have other issues at this time? Thanks in advance - 5D with more Gene is one of the great what-might-have-beens, to me.
