2 More Unseen Pictures Of The 1965 Byrds

David Crosby, Gene Clark and Jim McGuinn

Chris Hillman, David Crosby (face hidden by Hillman's bass) and Gene Clark's trousers...

These pictures were taken at a Byrds concert at Palos Verdes High School on October 29, 1965.

They were provided to us by Toulouse Engelhardt who opened for the band during their last tour in early 1973. Many thanks to him.

Visit Toulouse's website here:


Thanks for pointing out the year error (1965, not 1966)
