Pop Music

“If you can remember anything about the sixties, you weren’t really there,” Paul Kantner has said.

While that’s funny, it’s not exactly true. Not everyone tuned in, turned on, and dropped out, of course, like those in the counterculture. Plenty of us just watched The Beatles on Ed Sullivan and did our High School math homework. Some were fighting for us in Vietnam. The blogs talk about the music as well as the pop culture happening at the time. Peace out, amigo.
