Subject: RE: info pls: 60s music & spirituality
I go away for a few hours and miss the fireworks - just my luck! Having recently struck up a few differences of opinions in recent days myself; I must say GUEST you seem to be one of my kind. No disrespect to Bruce and Poppagator et al. but your arguments for the 60s Golden Age are rather flogging a dead horse (sorry for lapsing in the vernacular but it's late). Let's be more aware of the fact that George Harrison visited Haight Ashbury and said it was "like the Bowery, full of doped up spotty dropouts who just wanted to get wasted". Forgive me for being less than enthusiastic about such a hyped symbolic representation of 60s culture. Go back and read about the Civil Rights Movement and Social and Economic Change in the 1960s and I don't believe Jerry Garcia merits a mention. The rose tinted granny glasses surely must be replaced with Raybans someday.

May Your God Go With You.
