About Gene Clark

While Gene Clark will always be best-known for his short stint as lead singer for the Byrds, he also carved out an influential career in the years that followed. He made psychedelic pop singles in the mid-'60s, helped invent country-rock with 1968's Gene Clark with the Gosdin Brothers album, then teamed with Doug Dillard in the late '60s to make two records that served as a blueprint for Americana. In the '70s, Clark made a pair of solo albums that cemented his place as a visionary singer/songwriter, first the starkly acoustic White Light in 1971 and the slickly baroque No Other three years later. Through it all, Clark's clear and true vocals, his poetic turns of phrase, and his skill at weaving melancholy melodies never wavered.
