The Eye of the Acoustic Storm

Byrds

Each week, a different artist is spotlighted in "The Eye of The Acoustic Storm." Hourly segments of "The Eye" feature the artist's music along with bio information and sound bites.

The Byrds were one of the most influential bands to come out of Los Angeles in the 60's. Roger McGuinn's 12-string Rickenbacker guitar helped to establish folk-rock as a musical force and inspired a new generation of rockers that included Tom Petty and R.E.M.
