Re: "Aging Hippies Music Thread"

When I was in my early 20s I was flying to Jax Fla from Colorado and had a plane change in Atlanta and got bumped up to first class. They sit me next to Ronnie Van Zandt of Lynyrd Skynyrd and the drummer who I forget because they had a few different ones. I instantly recognize Ronnie because of the hat and I had seen them in Denver some months earlier. He introduces himself and invites me to have a drink with him. We tossed down 8 little bottles of Jack Black each in that 45 minute flight. The stewies knew who they were so we had continuous service. I was flying on my own when the plane landed. Tell me you wouldn't have done the same. 6 months later he was dead. One of the best songs ever.

Guess Churchill's statement has a lot of truth in it:

1969 or 70~ Hair at the Orpheum, SF
mid 70's ~ Seals & Crofts at the Calaveras County Frog Jumping Jubilee
Early 80's ~ Grateful Dead at Cal Expo, Sacramento

I just don't get out much, do I?

Re: "Aging Hippies Music Thread"

Ahh Woodstock. Went with a friend who borrowed a Dodge Mobil Home. We ended up driving in with about a dozen people we picked up on the drive in. Lotsa mud.

Lots of goodies already up. I'd never heard of Alvin Lee until that night



Didn't stay for this. Had to get home for work. Major life error:

Hard to beat Janis. She sang this at her last concert at Harvard Stadium in Boston. An insanely great night (at least, the memories that penetrate the haze). This is an earlier version.

Re: "Aging Hippies Music Thread"

So here's some more music trivia from Bob's life. When I was 13 I was with my parents at an insurance convention in Miami. They wanted to ditch sis and I so they got us tickets to the Monkees. Guess who the warm up band was. That would be Jimi Hendrix. We were blown away and didn't know what to think. And the fans were smoking marijuana! I got my first Jimi album shortly after that. The date of that concert was July 9, 1967.
FenderŪ News
The funny thing is is that I still like both groups even though they are polar opposites. I'm bi-polar anyway so it fits. No I'm not, Yes, I am, No I'm not. Oh crap, I need my pills.

Here is my all time favorite, Grateful Dead - Eyes of the World with Branford Marsalis on Sax. My favorite verse from the song is:
Quote:
Sometimes we live no particular way but our own,
And sometimes we visit your country and live in your home,
Sometimes we ride on your horses, sometimes we walk alone,
Sometimes the songs that we hear are just songs of our own.

Re: "Aging Hippies Music Thread"

Just to add a little balance since we are talking the Vietnam era. As I get older I see how history can be changed through some romanticism. I love the old rock and roll music from that time as much as the next person. But make no mistake Country music was a dominating factor of that time as well...
