Harold Eugene "Gene" Clark (November 17, 1944 – May 24, 1991) was an American singer-songwriter and founding member of the folk rock band The Byrds. Clark was The Byrds' dominant songwriter between 1964 and early 1966, penning most of the band's best-known originals from this period, including "I'll Feel a Whole Lot Better", "She Don't Care About Time", and "Set You Free This Time". Although he failed to achieve commercial success as a solo artist, Clark remained on the vanguard of popular music throughout his career, prefiguring developments in such disparate subgenres as psychedelic rock, baroque pop, newgrass, country rock, and alternative country.

Gene Clark is one of the greatest songwriters of all-time; he deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as Neil Young and Bobby Dylan.
