California culture expert and author Domenic Priore and Killradio's dj bennett discuss and do a deep listen to the music of L.A.'s own Byrds -- and their musical offshoots. Part one of three parts.
The Byrds were the first and most important of mid-60s Los Angeles rock bands. Without the Byrds, there would have been no freaks, no hippies, no space rock, no raga rock, no country rock. If you care about modern music, this is a story you need to know. And the music is amazing.
Domenic is the author of the marvelous L.A. musical history Riot on Sunset Strip: Rock'n'Roll's Last Stand in Hollywood, with the subtitle The Byrds, The Doors, The Beach Boys, Love, Frank Zappa, Buffalo Springfield, The Mamas and the Papas, The Turtles, and More. To learn more, give it a read.
