EXPERIENCE the HISTORICAL HEIGHT of POP and ROCK and PSYCHEDELIC CULTURE!
00individual was among those blessed to be born into this incarnation and into this existence at the most concentrated explosion of the Cultural Epoch of the late ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. To have been able to experience the slow innocent build of the ’50s as a single-digit Rocker, and the real-time experience in his teens and twenties that matched truly historic events of each decade, is an exceptional gift, especially for those who appreciated it then, as now.
The 1960s are acknowledged as the Height of Pop Culture – and 1967 as the Pinnacle!
