Topic: WHY SIXTIES music STILL STANDS AS A ROCK+WHAT HAPPENED in the 7ties
We all talk, listen and like the sixties. Even young chordians start to appreciate those years.
What was so special about the MUSIC SCENE, with highlights as the MONTEREY festival, and of course WOODSTOCK.
I was told that the ALTAMONT concert, an 18 year old "kid" was killed by one of the hell's angels, responable for the security. This image is burned forever in my mind. Jagger, saw something and tried to calm down, and Keith, well he continued playing still for a minute, WAS THE BEGIN OF THE ENDING.
Is it also related with politics, war....
I can tell you only that a lot of songs are still standing.
Which European bands were very popular in the USA?
- I encounter quit a lot the HOLLIES, and probably Graham Nash played an important role, being one of the founding members of CSN & YOUNG
Here in Europa, we are very familiar with Tony James and the shondells.
We only know here "Crimson and clover", but they have at least 10 songs, high ranked in the billboard top 100
- MY GUITAR PLAYS EVERY STYLE = BLUES, ROCK, METAL, so I NEED TO LEARN HOW TO PLAY IT.
