Roger McGuinn-Turn Turn Turn-Dallas 1-17-91

Share

I was both honored and yet humbled to have Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Roger McGuinn of The Byrds appearing live on my Dallas/Ft.Worth radio show. Mere words fail¬† to explain what his unique gentle voice and 12-string electric guitar have meant to the last almost half-century of contemporary music ( as confirmed elsewhere within this archive by no less than the late Beatle George Harrison and Tom Petty). But Roger’s choice to sing the Pete Seeger classic “Turn,Turn,Turn”, with its timeless lyrics from the Book of Ecclesiastes, on the day after the Gulf War Desert Storm broke out twenty years ago, helped me grapple with long-dormant conflicted feelings about war on that memorable day. -Redbeard
