He also worked with the Byrds, the Beach Boys, the Mamas and Papas, and other legendary bands of the 1960s. The special features new interviews with Paul McCartney, Van Dyke Parks, and Roger McGuinn of the Byrds, as well as never-before-heard interviews with Derek Taylor, recorded at the time of the Beatles Anthology project.
