I'm talking about being young in the very late fifties to the late sixties.
I remember the great revolution in music, the advent of Elvis, which changed everything, followed by the Beatles.
There seemed to be a vast explosion of musical talent once those doors were opened, talent that has lasted till 2010 e.g. Abba, Mamas and Papas, PP & M, Rolling Stones etc. and many, many more.
Then the singer/songwriters, Bob Dylan, Don McLean, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, John Denver, also many, many more.
Then there was the summer of love (1967), where drugs seem harmless by today's standards.
We didn't lock our cars or our doors, we had chats with neighbours over the back fence.
Of course it wasn't all great, especially for those of you in the U.S.
There was the JFK assassination, which dashed our hopes, followed by RFK and MLK.
Plus of course there was the small matter of the threat of nuclear annihilation!
Am I just another old fart moaning about the "good old days", or did "Happy Days" touch a chord in our hearts?
Please note I'm not saying our generation WAS the best, I would not be so presumptuous, I'm would like to hear different opinions.
What do Generation X and Generation Y think?
