Byrds: Requiem for the Timeless: Volume 2: The Lives of Gene Clark, Michael Clarke, Kevin Kelley, Gram Parsons, Clarence White and Skip Battin
The Closest to heaven its possible to come -Mojo
This is at least the best biography of a group ever written - Q Magazine
One of the most ambitious and expansive rock biographies ever written, Requiem For The Timeless, Volume 2continues this epic study of the Byrds. Rogan s previous Byrds book was highly acclaimed
The second volume focuses on the solo careers of the deceased members of the band, including co-founder and songwriter Gene Clark, cult figure Gram Parsons and the acclaimed guitarist Clarence White.
Taken as a whole, these obituaries confirm that the Byrds were not simply a legendary group but something closer to a movement that defined LA rock. Their individual lives are a moving and salutary tale of the rise and fall of a generation s hopes and dreams.
As with all the best works in rock biography, this will send you back to the music with fresh ears. In a word: definitive --UncutIt s impossible not to admire Rogan, a man whose approach to popular music is academically exhaustive, and yet who still manages to write with an ease and generosity that puts younger gunslinger dudes to shame. This is a book that is worth every penny and about a group that fully merits such a retrospective --Time OutIt is highly unlikely that a more committed Byrds fan than Johnny Rogan exists anywhere on this planet. He cares more passionately about the Byrds than most of the musicians who ve been in the band . . . Rogan tells his convoluted tale with thoroughness and insight --Classic Rock
