Byrds Flyght Pages at New Location

In November 2009, Yahoo closed all websites that were freely hosted on its GEOCITIES subsidiary.

Several BYRDS FLYGHT pages disappeared in the process.

Hereunder is a link to the new place where these pages are made available again, but re-upping all of them will take some time, so please be patient.

Thank you.

Starbyrd is alive !!!

Horst-Peter Schmidt from Cologne, Germany, has resurrected his band Starbyrd and recorded new tracks, which are currently in the final mixing stage.

The new CD will be called "Return Of A Starbyrd" and will probably be released in January 2011.

Horst-Peter has kindly sent us a demo mix of the CD and all tracks are the kind every Byrds fan dreams of : lots of Rickenbacker 12 string guitar and harmony vocals.

Byrds Flyght will publish further info as soon as the CD is available.

Here's what the cover will look like (name of the band and title of the album still missing at this stage)
