"Green, Green" and "Saturday Night" in 1963?
Feedback: Re: Barry McGuire, actor
From: Mike Stidham Sent: 21 August 2010
The question was asked on the "Hennesey" page whether or not the Barry McGuire who appeared
in two episodes was the same person as the folksinger who recorded "Eve of Destruction".
According to IMDB, the actor Barry McGuire and the singer Barry McGuire are two different people.
McGuire the singer's own webpage seems to back this up, as it mentions that he was busy in the folk
music scene during the time when the other Barry McGuire was quite busy as a character actor. [MS]
