The Byrd Who Flew Alone: The Triumphs and Tragedy of Gene Clark (Four Suns DVD)

Bill Wasserzieher, Ugly Things, Spring 2014

OF ALL THE hard-luck tales about musicians who died before their time – Brian Jones, Hendrix, Joplin, Morrison, Parsons, Bloomfield, Cobain, Winehouse, et al. – the Gene Clark story is among the saddest. He was a man of immense talent and terrible flaws. And that is what the DVD biography The Byrd Who Flew Alone: The Triumphs and Tragedy of Gene Clark attempts to explain.
