My Personal Notes: Rock N Roll is one of the first Joes I got when I started getting them as a kid.  I really liked his personality on the show as a fun guy, and thought his long machine gun was really cool.  Rock N Roll is the one Joe I have two different versions of both displayed in my collection.  As a kid, I admit I got him with the swivel-arm battle grip.  While working in early 2012 to fill other holes in my collection off of eBay, I found straight-arm one from a seller I was making other purchases from really cheap, and picked him up.  Unfortunately, the stiff arm one has a broken thumb on one hand.  Otherwise, he is in great condition.  The swivel arm one has a lot of paint wear, especially in the ammo belts, as seen below.
