WASHINGTON - March 11, 2014 - PRLog -- Wednesday, March 12, 3 pm ET, The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Talk Radio for Fine Minds welcomes arguably one of the great guitar players of our time, Roger McGuinn.

Guitar player, singer, songwriter, Roger McGuinn is best known as the lead singer and lead guitarist of The Byrds, today considered by critics to be one of the most influential bands of the 1960s, pioneering the musical genre of folk rock, melding the influence of The Beatles and other British Invasion bands with contemporary and traditional folk music.

McGuinn was voted in the top five on Rolling Stone’s list of greatest guitar players of all time, praised for his chordal 12-string Rickenbacker riffs, the sonic bridge between folk and rock that changed music forever.

Jim McGuinn was a kid from the WindyCity when he became interested in music after hearing Elvis Presley’s Heartbreak Hotel, which inspired him to pick up the guitar. The rest, as they say, is history. McGuinn would play with The Limeliters, The Chad Mitchell Trio, Bob Dylan, Bo Diddley, Judy Collins and Bobby Darin. He and fellow Byrd members that included Gene Clark, David Crosby, Gram Parsons, Chris Hillman would make songs such as Mr. Tambourine Man, Turn Turn Turn, Eight Miles High and The Ballad of Easy Rider number one hits. In 1991 The Byrds were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
