All 735 pages of it. When it came out in '98 it was a pretty good source for researching Byrds boots. Practically all of that stuff has become available (rockingbyrds) in the last couple of years. Still the most thorough Byrds historical resource although I do recall Gene had a couple of reservations about its accuracy. Several years ago (it may have been a small note on a McGuinn solo album) Roger mentioned he was writing an autobiography--apparently aborted. I wish Dickson would have written a book.

You mean Gene Parsons? Unlikely. What's your source? Speaking for Rogan, he interviewed Gene Parsons last year. He's never questioned a single point accuracy in print. Anyway, the book is constantly rewritten/revised/corrected every new edition. The Fourth hardback edition came out recently (see new Record Collector).

Yes, Gene Parsons. The comment was made quite awhile ago---I believe by someone who spoke to Gene directly. (actually I may have discussed it with Gene briefly several years ago myself during one of my bender overhauls. Long time ago, though) It is highly conceivable---Rogan may have made corrections.

Rogan did a few interviews since Gene. He called my sister and myself. Will be interesting to read the next book.

I just purchased a hardback copy of the book: "The Byrds: Timeless Flight Revisited: The Sequel" from Barnes & Noble and I'm looking forward to reading it since I never read the first book. Can anybody give me any details about the book? What does the book 'cover', actually?

Cool! I can get THAT one for Christmas! *hee hee*

I wanna learn everything I can about the Byrds - especially Clarence! It's just too bad that there doesn't seem to be any books solely devoted to his life and times. Sad Of course, if there is....I apologize if I'm wrong. Embarassed

i especially enjoyed reading So You Want to Be A Rock'nRoll Star by Christofer Hjort, it really gave a feeling of intimacy with the day by day Byrds. Enabled me to read about the exact concerts i got to see, and a few some friends got to see in other cities. really gave their feelings when this happened, that happened, how they played on such and such a nite, who else was on the bill, the times they shared shows with burritos, others, etc.

was different form other books because the day by day history was given.
