BYRDS-ANFÜHRER ROGER MCGUINN WURDE 80
- Jul 17, 2022
Roger McGuinn, who co-founded The Byrds in 1964, turns 80 on July 13. With his band, the guitarist and singer played a significant role in the development of Psychedelic Rock ("Eight Miles High," 1966) and the emergence of Folk Rock (MR. TAMBOURINE MAN, 1965) and Country Rock (SWEETHEART OF THE RODEO, 1968). After the breakup of the Byrds, McGuinn embarked on a successful solo career, releasing three albums with Byrds colleagues between 1979 and 1981 that were particularly influenced musically by Country and Folk Rock. His most recent album, MERRY CHRISTMAS, was released in 2020.
