Basement Rock Interview With Roger Mcguinn of the Byrds
Basement Rock’s Glen Braget interviews Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Member of the Byrds Roger McGuinn in November, 2005 about his Folk Den Music Project.
Roger Mcguinn is best known for being the lead singer and lead guitarist on many of the Byrds’ records in the mid 1960’s and early 1970’s. He is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with The Byrds.
Since 1995, Mcguinn has used the Internet to continue the folk music tradition since November 1995 by recording a different folk song each month on his Folk Den site. The songs are made available from his Web site, and a selection (with guest vocalists) was released on CD as Treasures from the Folk Den, which was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2002 for Best Traditional Folk Album. In November 2005, McGuinn released a four-CD box set containing one hundred of his favorite songs from the Folk Den.
