* EnsembleDarkhorse: Gene Clark and Gram Parsons both have reputations that transcend their brief stints as Byrds. While their solo work and [[DeadArtistsAreBetter untimely deaths]] have a lot to do with it, they both played important roles in the band's history. Clark was their best in-house songwriter on the early albums, and Parsons was responsible for their shift to CountryRock.

** They recorded Crosby's OneTrueThreesome ode "Triad" for ''The Notorious Byrd Brothers'', but the others hated it and after Crosby got fired they saw no problem in leaving it off the album. Crosby gave it to Music/JeffersonAirplane instead, and the Byrds version sat on the shelf for 20 years.
