The Byrds – 8 Miles high
Written by News Bot on November 9, 2020
November 9, 1967: Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman drove to David Crosby’s house to inform him that he was no longer part of The Byrds. They had become increasingly irritated by what they saw as Crosby’sSee More overbearing egotism and his attempts to dictate the band’s musical direction. Drummer Michael Clarke had already quit the band; McGuinn and Hillman would regroup and rebuild The Byrds, but their most successful days were behind them.
Crosby would begin working with Stephen Stills and Graham Nash the following year; they would release their debut album in 1969.
