In Memoriam: The Byrds' Gene Clark (1944-1991)

Bill Wasserzieher, Full Circle, September 1991

THE LAST TIME I had a conversation with Gene Clark was on a sunny Sunday afternoon in April at Aron's Record Store in Hollywood, not far from where he was scheduled to give what would prove to be his final performances. He was in a fine mood, eager to talk, and excited to be doing a five-night stand at the Cinegrill in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
