Thread Name: Have you told your kids about the 60s?
Subject: RE: Have you told your kids about the 60s?
Indeed I have, my Son and various extended family. I was in Birmingham in the 60's. Like most people then I felt as if I belonged in the 60's and the oppoite for every decade since. So many new sounds were happening then. The dreadful XFactor types thankfully didn't exist then,bands and singers seemed that much more special maybe because they had to work their way to fame and actually know how to play music. They seemed more enigmatic, you'd never see them crying like babies on TV or peeing themselves in some reality show. Birmingham itself was a very fifferent place, coffee shops was where you'd go to listen to music. Girls were much more feminine and rarely drunk. The Locarno, Odeon, Silver Blades, Cedar Club, the Tow Robe Cafe etc throbbed with the sounds of the day, and most nights we managed to be home by Midnight. Yep them were the days my Friend ;)
