There is a saying the goes "If you can remember anything about the sixties, you weren't really there." I was there and I know what they mean.

it was a time of love, Rock and Roll

The sixties was a wonderful time for me, I was in my teens and old enough to appreciate all that was happening at that time

At the beginning of the sixties the world exploded with the sounds of music and love, new pop groups were cropping up all around, "The Beatles" "The Rolling Stones" and so many others.

With flowers in your hair

I was in London in 1959/60 and spent a lot of my time in and around Carnaby street Westminster, trying new looks and new styles.

All the clothes had flowers on them, and love was all around me, it was a time when anything goes, and in most of the time it did

And on to Europe

I spent most of the rest of the sixties in Europe learning new languages and trying different foods.

Germany was the place where I started, there was a music venue on every corner, and free love was the norm, at the time it all seemed so innocent, the girls had flowers in their hair, and everyone was beautiful

If someone thinks that love and peace is a cliche that must have been left behind in the Sixties, that's his problem. Love and peace are eternal. ~ John Lennon

Time has changed and changing faster now - not sure for the better. We seem to know the cost of everything at our fingertips but not the value of anything especially good old fashioned love replaced now by a flippant lifestyle. Thanks Johnnydod for this throwback to a period that had its own enduring charm - siva

Europe and the United Kingdom is still the hub of Creativity and life out there.
The Moondogs aka the Beatles are any way owned by Michael and Family and there was a percentage ownership by Sony.
None the less, the Paparazzi do have a great big camera like that. Now let's have your live piccys of you on stage performing as you did perform in a band back then didn't you???

Well the truth be told Johnny Dodd was a lighting experet who died of AIDS and I haven't seen another although I could be wrong.

BTW, Michael, Sony and their family are real. They are Duggus with me. Asante Sana.
This is my next agenda and that was something I never told you that I was a musician since the age of three.

Takes me back johnnydod, takes me right back. I arrived in San Francisco in 1967, in the Summer of Love, and headed straight for Haight-Ashbury. Back then, we were going to change the world.....how innocent we all were.

Great article! In the 60's we had the Vietnam war and the Kent state shootings. It seemed to overshadow the fun times. I loved the music and I thought the Beatles were the best.

I just happened to think of a little tidbit. Way back when there wew two groups. There were the hippy and greaser types. This was true in Cleveland. All my friends were greasers. The guys wore their hair slicked back with black leather jackets. Can you just imagine! LOL

I survived the 60s by getting an education! I was at Grammar School from 1963 to 1971, and didn't spend much time in "swinging London".

To be honest, the swinging 60s came and went without me being aware that they were "swinging" at all!
