The Byrds are an American rock band that was established in 1964 in Los Angeles, California. The group formally disbanded in 1973. During that time, the band endured multiple lineup changes, and when all was said it done, there had been 11 members altogether. That membership included Roger McGuinn — known previously as Jim McGuinn — the iconic lead singer and guitarist on many Byrds’ records, and David Crosby, who’s enjoyed a prolific music career solo and also as a part of Crosby, Stills & Nash.
