    Bill Monroe appeared at Newport Folk the year this photo was taken, sorry, don't have the date or a photo of Bill there. Here's Kris Kristofferson flanked by James Monroe (left) and Jerry Jeff Walker (right)

    Dylan goes electric, tours Europe ...

    Behind Dylan is drummer Mickey Jones, far away faded head of Alfred Grossman (manager), Rick Danko, half of Robbie Robertson's head, Richard Manuel in the black hat ... not sure, but it might be a non-bearded Garth Hudson with dark glasses in the far rear.

    No, I sometimes share some of the non-copyrighted photos from Marina Jason. Marina was an act manager and event organizer for numerous big name folk acts, and has quite a collection. Some she took herself, and others she simply collected over the years. There are plenty of grassers and country artists she knows well, along with folk and folk-rock type people, and she has a lot of unpublished photos that she shares with a closed group I belong to. She's happy for us to share them, but pretty guarded about letting people into the group.

    Glen Campbell looks pretty much the same in most photos, but young Leon and Waylon . . . whoa!

    Would love to know the year on that photo. Mid-sixties "wrecking crew" vintage I'd guess.

    Gee - Leon and Waylon haven't changed a bit . . . I just wonder which one of them was the practical joker that cut Glen's tie in half.
