World of Bob Bob Dylan Symposium - Roger McGuinn Sings and Talks Dylan

I just saw Roger McGuinn at the New York Society for Ethical Culture at the end of April, but it was certainly a pleasure to see him again in Tulsa.  He was interviewed by music journalist Jeff Slate who also wrote the liner notes for the recent boxed set More Blood, More Tracks.  Roger talked about how his career developed in the 1960s including his meeting the four other members of the original Byrds.  He described his original recording of Mr. Tambourine Man and the inception of folk rock as a musical genre.  He had anecdotes about Dylan and as you can see from above he had his guitar and sang some Dylan songs.

I wish he had answered some questions from the audience.
