With - but not the Parsons you're thinking of

Gene Parsons played drums in the version that played UHall in 1971/72. The band was McGuinn, mindbending ex-Kentucky Colonel Clarence White on guitar, and Skip Battin on bass. Gene Parsons and Clarence White also developed the Parsons/White Stringbender, a mechanical device for Fender Telecasters that raised up the B string a whole step for cool fake pedal steel sounds. Marty Stuart owns Clarence's original B-Bender Telecaster now. I actually played it once 16 or 17 years ago.
