Welcome to ByrdWatcher! The ByrdWatcher Website contains a wealth of information about one of the most important rock bands of all time. The Byrds brought many new musical influences into rock, and in turn exerted a powerful influence on many of their contemporaries and younger musicians. For years now, my own interest in the Byrds has led me to discover dozens of other great bands I now love. In time that interest even helped me to develop an appreciation for country music, a genre I once scorned.
     Because of their connections to so much other fascinating music, the Byrds are peculiarly well-suited to the hypertext format of the Web. To help the curious explore these musical ties, ByrdWatcher contains hundreds of links to information on this site and elsewhere. So even if you think you know everything there is to know about the Byrds, you're likely to find something new and interesting at -- or through -- this site.
     Many of the pages on ByrdWatcher are set up to allow interaction with and among users, so please participate! And of course, we want your feedback, at Correct mistakes; offer opinions; ask questions. I've met some great people thanks to a love for this band, and I look forward to meeting many more of you through this site.
     All the member profiles, other than the one for David Crosby, are already written but not yet 'ported into HTML. They will be rolled out as time permits. The Crosby profile and the Byrds History Section will be rolled out after that. (The Crosby profile may not be up for some time, but right now you can check out the ByrdWatcher Interview with David Crosby!) Bookmark this site and keep checking back -- there'll be lots of new stuff here in the future. Enjoy!

I believe that more is better."

is a pearl beyond price."
