I love rush. They didn't release their first album until 1974

82 Nashville Teens
83 The Trashmen
84 The Searchers

Before the Byrds there were the Searchers. Needles and Pins, When You Walk into the Room, Don't Throw You're Love Away and What Have They Done to the Rain are some of the most beautifully underrated songs of the decade.

Early 60s English soft beat group from England but Doub't they had any influence on the Byrds phychedelic sound of the mid 60's..

One of the great, great bands - many, many hits beyond American Woman - lead singer, Burton Cummings, still going strong - saw him in Las Vegas two years ago. Still great!
