For some of the young ones on here the 60'70' is like ancient history. Some rock concert somewhere in New York, Images of some California street in San Francisco, Communes, Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll, Be Here now

 

Burning  Draft Cards and Bras. Protesting a War. Women's (Men's) Liberation. I am sure there are some stories worth writing about ...give it a toke....lol

During high school , most of us worked for one friend's dad delivering and setting up water-beds. For our High School graduation present, Dad gave us all tickets to see YES and Led Zeplin in concert on the Queen Mary down in Long Baech ( i lived in so cal at the time) ANYWAY,,,, IMAGINE the YES Fragile tour with the LED ZEP Stairway to Heaven tour ,,some purple pyramid ...let me tell you, there was NEVER BEEN a better concert !! It was magical...what I remember of it, that is ( hehehe,,get over it,,was a very long time ago! )

I don't care what else the Sixties got wrong. That was when short shorts first came out !!!!!!!!!!!! I was 13 in 1969, but I thought Heaven had come to earth when I saw my first pair.

Quoting irocas:

Some of us go all the way back to the 50s.... the start of Rock and Roll, Elvis and American Bandstand. The worst thing about Vietnam was how vets were treated when we came home. Thankfully that has changed and we treat those in uniform with dignity and respect. My first live concert... Dylan at Forest Hills, NY. Used to go to Jazz clubs in the Village but this was different. Woodstock... got stuck in a traffic jam on the NY state Thruway. Lived in Beacon,NY and used to go to Woodstock all the time. Women's Lib.... it's the reason that things are still screwed up. Aside from everything else it was the first time women thought that it was wise to take advice from other women when it came to understanding men... we're just not that complicated. The 70s... I was married with children and never got into the hippy dippy life style... but I was one of the first environmental engineers.... and the Hudson River was a cesspool back then.


My Dad went to Army Corp of Engineers in Missouri and was instrumental in getting some of the New England paper factories to clean up their acts polluting the Millers River,,, a tributary of the Conneticut River and set up water treatment plants in Massachusetts. Rivers back then had raw sewage dumped directly into the rivers from homes and factories.

 

 

I saw the Rolling Stones in the boston Garden.....The Doors in Northeastern U in Boston...he was totally wasted

 

The woman's lib movement set us men free also.....to bad we didnt get together in a movement of our own

Moldy...thinking about the sixties and thought you might like this photo. This is me...I think I'm 20....so that would be 1970, but close enough. Easy Rider days. The photo isn't good, but the shorts are stars and stripes and got the hippie hair going on.....I'll follow up with the chopper.....

Quoting Curious2078:

The sexy 60's?  Oh, Moldy.  For some of us, they were not sexy at all.  You, you have made it clear from a photo that you were in NAM!!!!  Enough said.

For the rest of us...for me...I surely wasn't in Nam.  Women who weren't nurses weren't....  Cliff had been in med school before he dropped out to go to Nam.  But, after that Ohio State crap, somehow he got sidetracked and became a heroin addict instead.  Died in roughly 1975.   Tommy Mc---did go to the war...came back so addicted to crack, he died 5 years later.  His brother, Michael, a Vet, died of alcohol poisoning in a jail cell in White Plains where cops were trying to keep him safe from him himself and 10 to many beers one night....

Back in those 60s you are talking about, Moldy,  I went to more funerals for Viet Nam vets than I can now remember.  I reached a point where I could no longer tolerate my own grief.  One of the last funerals I remember: My then boyfriend and I...I have no idea what he was wearing--I decided I had to do something humorous.  Something our dead friends would appreciate.   So, to this furneral I wore a trenchcoat--and nothing else!!!!!  No, I didn't flash anyone. I just wore nothing but a rainy day trenchcoat.  Gave myself and my close friends all the laughs we needed.  

We WAKED the  dead in a local Irish pub where noone cared that I kept my trench coat on all night.....

I really do have a lot more to say....but what I've said already has, to my utter surprise, totally wiped me out.   Damn, you'd think Viet Nam happened just yesterday....would have thought I was done with that... 

Moldy, I had a lot more to say to this blog....but I'm afraid I've MOVED myself to emotional heights [or should I say lows...] that I can't go on right now.  This time was a killer.  I'm afaid that for me in many ways it still is....  I just lost too many good friends during this era....  Some to Nam; some to anti-War efforts....  I still haven't reconciled all those disparities....  Probably never will.   Al I can say:  that whole era sucked bigtime.  Far, far too many vet friends lost to death...far, far too many vet friends lost to madness.....   And politically speaking?  Far, far,far too many lives lost to this countries' memories because of politics.  PURE, STUPID POLITICS.  When a nation cannot honor it's heroes.....

That nation is damned to hell....  And we are so far down that road to hell now....  I hope I don't live long enough to see us reach the end....

Pat

 

 



HEY, I was born... Couldn't have been all THAT bad! Even have a'69 Clos-St. Gilere, Portet to prove it!!!!!

Yes. Nam was devastating to a lot of the youth of america, I lost count of how many body bags I helped to zip up and send home, only a few of the 58,158 of our friends, sons, and loves......just boys. How many of my own friends that returned from that "conflict" who's inner conflict destroyed themselves in drugs and booze I cant list.....many !!!!

 

Many of us that did survive that period, be it at home or returning veterans took a turn,  to chose a different view of life. Maybe out of denial, desperation, or survival, we tried to make a change. Short lived as it was, that period's effects are with us today. Present conditions observed, can I be so sure? did we? 

 

I will not get into the politics of this country, but to say that how/when/where is... "enough is enough"?

 

A survivor

repeating a post on another blog,,,inspiring this one.....token the bong...lol

 

 

I was fortunate to be a member of one of those 60's Hippie Communes. Memories and friends from that time in my life I still have to this day. Thirteen of us in a Castle mansion in Massachusetts in one house and another Fifteen in an other on the same property. Pig roast in the field. Hot tub parties, Rock and Blues Stars for visiters......Disfunctional Animal house?? Very functional ...tripping the lights fantastic...lol

Give it a toke....LOVED that pun on words. One toke over the line sweet Jesus, one toke over the line....sittin' downtown in a railway station, one toke over the line.   I was a child of the 60's....remember Vietnam well. Late hubby failed his physical which I was so very glad. We had only been married a month and I thought he was a goner for sure. He had high blood pressure and govt kept up with him for a year before he got the coveted 4-F.

 

Was not a participant of Woodstock but sure wish I had. It's been tried a few times again but I don't think it will ever be duplicated from that era.

 

Bike gangs...Hell's Angels...remember them? For so long we were all scared to death of bikers....now they are my age and sweethearts. I run into Harley ralleys a lot in the Ozarks and most of them are fun people in their 60s now.

 

The only concerts I remember going to in the 60s were The Animals (House of the Rising Sun) I never had the opportunity to see the Beatles, but I have since seen McCartney twice...the last being just last summer. That guy is phenomenal....performed for 2 straight hrs without a break or water!

 

Wish I had a great story, but I can't remember one....but always fond memories of that era. Was sitting in 8th grade English class, 6th period.....when we got the news about JFK....remember the teacher crying....
