Video of the Week: Desert Rose Band & Roger McGuinn

Posted in Rock Moment with tags , , , , on February 2, 2011 by 30daysout

From 1990, a show on the old Nashville Network: former Byrds frontman Roger McGuinn joins the Desert Rose Band, led by another ex-Byrd, Chris Hillman.  McGuinn possesses the weirdest stare and the neatest mullet I’ve seen in years.  They’re doin’ “You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere,” the Bob Dylan gem cut by the Byrds on their classic 1968 album Sweetheart Of The Rodeo.

The song title is dedicated to all our friends up north, who are snowed in and home from work.  If you’re in Austin and looking to get out of the cold tonight, check out Chris Hillman and Herb Pedersen, live at the Cactus Cafe on the University of Texas campus.
