ROSIE/ROGER PALMER (guitar)
“A typical product of a military upbringing Rosie/Roger Palmer gender-oscillates on a 6-monthly basis. A hoarder of musical instruments is a disciple of the Bert Weedon Play-in-a-Day Method and is happy to bore the pants of you about the Herstory of Bigsby Vibrato systems.
Rosie’s dress is ALWAYS in the best possible taste.”
