          While George Harrison brought attention
to the Rickenbacker twelve string, James Roger
put it on the map.

Recollections of Jim Walker

Just a note of interest on the above photo credited to me: That was probably the wildest and most dangerous concert I ever went to. It was at The Arena in Richmond VA and the crowd was drunk, stoned, and disorderly. There were empty wine bottles flying through the air. A lot of people were injured that night. I am still surprised that the Byrds played for the entire evening.
