So You Want To Be A Rock ‘N’ Roll Star

Not the very best of The Byrds – but the lyrics are a gas – even though the game has changed.  We heard this tune on the radio the other day and smiled.  It seems that every successful rock band writes this kind of tune.  Lynyrd Skynyrd’s ‘Workin’ for MCA’, Rolling Stones’ – ‘West Coast Promotion Man’ –  Today’s un-written tune?  ‘File-Sharing Man, (Keyboard Booster 128)’

  2. This is a great. fun, little track. ‘just get an electric guitar, then take some time, and learn how to play…” gets me singing along and wishing along every time! I also love Mr. Spaceman by the Byrds for similar reasons ‘Won’t you please take me along for a ride”
