    Hippies: "Why don't you leave behind your money and guns and love each other"?
    Dad: Get a haircut.

    Punks: LEAVE BEHIND YOUR FU(KING MONEY AND GUNS AND FU(KIN LOVE EACH OTHER
    Dad: Not that haircut.

    Hip-Hop (1st wave): Yo, I got the money and the guns now
    Dad: Security!

    Grunge: All apologies. BLAM.
    Dad: That Curt Cobain, always shooting off his mouth.

    Today: He's not heavy, he's my husband.
    Dad: Well... I reckon I use to be a hippie, so okay...

    Definitely a unique sound. Back in the day it was daring, now it's sort of like "grampa music" I think. Back then I kind of though "wow, a fusion of rock and jazz, a rock-jazz fusion if you will." Then that ran its course over in a little eddy of music. There's no ego in it, and music's been about ego for the last couple decades. Kids these days... get off my lawn...

    This AM working with my grandson rebuilding an ATV and listening to Little Steven's Garage, amazing how much I missed and how much I forgot... the themes this AM were mother's and girl punk bands.

    Did a whole thing on girls and garage bands, missed a lot there as well..

    Completely missed the infatuation with Frank Zappa, while my bro in law never missed a concert, I was more into "trippy" music, even though I never dared to "trip", thought I might not come back and wind up on a back ward somewhere....

    But mostly forgot a lot of it...

    War... Slippin into darkness, low rider.

    Oh yeah ...I'm a few years behind you but definitely disliked Zappa and Tull I didn't get it. My sister is about your age and she was in a band. I grew up on Joplin, Dylan, Hendrix ... Woodstock and all the rest. Naturally I did not partake in the booze, the spliffs and the free sex and hairy women until a bit later. :D:D

    I was working an event at the Dallas Convention Center a number of years back. The one hall was exhibiting low riders from the Dallas area. Front and center was the original band performing "low rider". No one from those cars turned off much less down, their music. I guess the analogy is LeBron changing his number to number 9 our of respect to Jordan.

    Whenever I've got that "nostalgic" feelin', I love listening to Van Morrison. One of kind vocals....

    #1 pick...."Into the Mystic"

    Never was much of a hard rock fan. Did a quick stint with Led Zeppalin, Aerosmith, etc....but I got old before my time and fell in love with "easy listening soft rock" sounds of the Eagles, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, James Taylor and many, many others.

    Thought I died and went to heaven when my friend's older brother turned me on to Physical Grafitti. But the concerts of the late 70's and early 80's were epic. Outdoor shows the best. Bob Marley at Harvard Stadium in 79 blew this former 17 year-old away and introduced me to an entire culture I was unaware of. Unfortunately, it was the end of a 4.0 GPA!

    Could be wrong PR, but I think Hebeill was referring to Jim Morrison with his quote.

    I believe that line is from Road House Blues....but as I said could be wrong.

    Either way, both Mr. Morrisons were great.

    Yeah...I forgot about the much more famous Jim Morrison and the Doors.

    The Doors remind me too much of my druggie-days whenver I hear them...prefer the "Mellow" music....

    Funny how the word "mellow" is rarely used today....that was my generations' word for "chilln'"....:D

    Haha..I like that comparison.

    I used both.

    My dad's taste in music seemed to follow yours. "Classic Rock" during his youth, more mellow stuff now.

    Hey PR. I just realized that Drewksi just subtly stuck into the category of "dad's age." I mean, we are and everything. But day-um.

    Hey Drewski? You'll never believe how quick it happens. HA.

    Boots Randolph and Yackety Sax if that doesn't make you want to start drinking nothing will.

    Elvis singing The Battle Hymn Of The Republic

    Kate Smith (God Bless America)

    Gene Autry (back in the saddle)

    Al Jolson (Mammy)

    Nat King Cole (East Side West Side & After The Ball Is Over))
