FlinterFile: The Byrds- So You Want To Be A Rock ‘N’ Roll Star
The Byrds wrote a humerous song about the music industry of 1967. However, the song was interpreted as being about music groups like the Monkees, which was ‘manufactured’ pop music. The bass rhythm was written during a recording for Hugh Masekela, who also joined the group to play the trumpet. The screaming crowd was already recorded at a performance in 1965. They also performed it with Masekela on the Monterey Pop Festival. The song became a number 29 hit in the US. Enjoy
