One night in 1964, Gene Clark heard Roger McGuinn performing his Beatle-esque folk songs at the Troubadour in LA. He liked what he heard and introduced himself to Roger.

Before Katie and I were married, we drove to to John Day Monument in Oregon, in my 1963 F-150 pick-up truck. It was dark when we got there. We slept in the bed and we awoke in the morning to a wonderful display of the painted hills.
