I felt like a man trapped in a woman's body. Then I was born.
Me too lol!
Born in 66..
The Beatles, Deep Purple , The Shadows, The Ventures and Led Zeppelin
I feel like a manly man. That's why I use this:
Country Joe McDonald & The Fish
Mountain - Mississippi Queen
Arlo Guthrie - Alice's Restaurant
Junior High school & and learning how to stand up for myself. Prior to this time, my family had moved so many times that I rarely had any problems, because I was simply the new guy.
'60s---high school, military.
I don't really remember much of it.
Another 66er here too!
April 68 here ..
Age 2 - 12
First memory, being woken up by my mom and being told President Kennedy had been shot, even though I had no idea who he was? I guess my mom just needed someone, anyone to talk to since my dad was AWOL most of the time.
Discovering music through my very cool and sexy (to an eight year old) babysitter who would play English invasion bands (Beatles, Stones, Kinks, Cream, Spencer Davis, The Who, The Hollies, The Yardbirds, The Zombies, etc!!) and dance with us around the living room!
My first pair of Beatle boots!
My mom arguing with my dad to let me wear my hair longer.
Bell bottoms and puffy sleeves!!
My dad talking to the TV about "those hippie bastards" protesting the war.......................
Was it really that long ago??
60 only two weeks away, how the f*#k did that happen???
I was born in '58 so I grew up during the " Wonder Years " and I was raised by the Greatest generation that ever lived .
Schwinn Sting Ray Bikes with a close pin and a baseball card in the spokes . Lucky enough to see and remember those guys from Liverpool on The Ed Sullivan Show , stick ball , playing skully ( it's a Bronx street game ) riding mini-bikes . Raised in a family environment as all my friends were too . Having , knowing and respecting both sets of Grandparents . And if you were real lucky , remembering your Great Grandmother ( moms side ) and a Great Grandfather ( dads side ) . Being out with your friends on bicycles all day and your parents never worried , came home at dusk and grabbed a flashlight . Used phrases like " yes Sir " " no thank you " " may I please " " excuse me " " I'm sorry " . Going to Catholic School and having the snot beat out of you by a Nun ( and you took it like a kid too ) Looking up to real heroes like Buzz Aldrin and John Glenn and you wanted to be like them too when you grew up . Cub Scouts . Going to a restaurant once a year , getting a soda with dinner and your parents told you there was no more after that . .......... another list that can go on and on
Lol the greatest generation = the worst parents cuz they were so full of themselves.
Please explain? I am very curious to why you make such a hasty generalization.
3 to 13:
The Beatles, of course, and a lot of other great music. The space program.
But overall, to me the 60s had a nightmare quality to them. Vietnam in our living rooms, Bobby Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. killed (I remember nothing firsthand about the JFK assassination) Richard Speck, Charles Whitman, the Tate/LaBianca murders, race riots, USS Forrestal fire, etc. More personally, my dad died at 56 in 1965 right in front of my eyes.
Just not a great decade in a lot of ways.
Sorry to bother you, Henry
Hope you have a good day!
January 64 here.

67 was not a good year if you were in Michigan. The riots in Detroit put everyone on edge. The civil rights marches, the assasination of the President and Martin Luther King. Unrest was everywhere, Viet Nam was ramping up. So lets not pretend that it was all nostalgic and hunky dory. But some of the greatest music ever came out of that decade due in a major part because of all that strife as well as some of the greatest musicians ever.
Black oak Arkansas
Simon and Garfunkle
Peter paul and Mary
But probably my three favorites
The womens movement (I know its sexist but all those braless breast were awesome!)

Yep. I remember the six years military. Sort of a blur though.
Not too sure I want to remember.
