Times are A Changin'
  

"There was music, the kind that never went away: the Stones and the Doors, Janis Joplin, very early Pink Floyd. It was one of those evenings."

 

It was a time of innocence.   An innocence we would never recover.  For by the end of the decade lives would be lost and the Beatles would never play again.   As these 10 years went on, our leaders would be slain.   Both Bobby and Martin gunned down tragically before their time.   We would lose Janis, Jimi, Mama and the Lizard King all in the prime of life. And the times they are a changin'.

I've got a lot of music on vinyl albums. Peter, Paul, & Mary are right up there in my book.

Such as it has always been, Dani. Each generation loses their own, and from grief rises the next.

It's rare to see anyone that remembers. Do you remember Thunderclap Newman singing, "Something In The Air"?
