Musician. Born Harold Eugene Clark in Tipton, Missouri, he was one of folk rock's most important innovators during the mid-1960s. In 1963, he was a member of the ‘New Christy Minstrals' when he relocated to Los Angeles, in 1964. There with guitar player Roger McGuinn, he founded his group ‘The Byrds'. As the group's primary songwriter for their first two albums, he was commercially successful with hits to include "Mr. Tambourine Man", "Feel A Whole Lot Better", "Turn, Turn, Turn" and "My Back Pages". In 1966, he departed from the band, signed a contract with Columbia Records and started a solo career. His albums included "Gene Clark With the Godsin Brothers" (1967), "White Light" (1971), "Road Master" (1972), "No Other" (1974) and "Firebyrd" (1987). He also participated in reunions with the ‘Byrds' through the years and toured with acoustic instruments in shows with Roger McGuinn. He died of natural causes in Sherman Oaks, California. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
