Byrds Unlikely To Reunite For 50th Anniversary

The Byrds fronter Roger McGuinn has no interest in touring with his former bandmates, telling Rolling Stone magazine, that, at this point, a tour would be "just for the money":

"I'm happy with the Byrds as a good memory. David [Crosby] and I have talked about this at length, and to me a reunion would just be for the money."

He added: "We'd go out and play some sheds, maybe gross a couple of million dollars and split it four or five ways. I'm not attracted to expensive things. I don't need a Ferrari or anything like that."

Crosby was fired from the band in 1968, following a disgraceful showing at the Monterey Pop Festival.

"He's just not interested in a Byrds reunion," said Crosby of McGuinn. "It would be great fun, but I got tired of asking him. I must have asked him at least 10 times and he always says no."
