I am actually one of the few people on this forum who do not like Hippy culture. I am sure many people will go to this.

I wouldn't stop at just art and music. They ruined everything else too.

Whenever I think of hippies, my crotch gets phantom itches like I have crabs. I wonder how it is that I came to associate hippies with genital lice?

We should start a thread about that jerkoff Jim Morrisson too!
Buzzy Out!








I love jazz music. The period of time from 1955 to almost exactly 1964 was a golden period in music, the likes never to be seen again. Then came 1964 and you all know who came on the scene that year, and destroyed Jazz for good. (And before you say that the new scene was equally vital and important, how many of you are into hip hop on this forum? THAT scene was also vital, influencial and important, and I HATE it!!)

.



Lucas, If it is the beatles you are referring to, I resent the sentiment. Rebellion against the suit wearing Exotica / Jazz loving set came in the form of Buddy Holly, Elvis, and the early pioneers of Rock n Roll, whom the Beatles sought to emulate. The only thing is they lasted longer and constantly introduced new sounds and different styles into the genre, thus expanding it.

Their expansion into Hippiedom, was somewhat influenced by the San Francisco movement (and some mind altering substances different than alcohol) , and they put their Beatle spin on it, which is very catchy pop melodies, good song construction and inventive production. Remember, the message behind their song "Revolution" was basically telling the Hippie movement to stop complaining and look inward at how to make change in the world.

In the end, the only thing the Beatles did in 1964 was write really catchy songs and have a goofy haircut given to them by a German Existentialist named Astrid.

They didn't seek to destroy everything you think was "right" about the world in that time period that preceded them.

Also, if you have anything nice to say about what I do, which you do, and I'm grateful for it, you can rest assured that 99% of my melodic sensibility derives from and is influenced by Lennon and McCartney.

I just make it sound like Lyman and Denny

As far as Jerry Garcia goes, I'm not a fan either...and I'll leave it at that.

The same goes for the most overrated "singer/poet" of all time...Jim Morrison.

What can I say, Jim? I am totally into jazz, specifically West Coast and Cool. I have not listened to Rock to any large extent in about 20 years. Modern Rock, that is.

Let's not forget ole Jack Kerouac and the other "Beat" boys...whether they liked it or not, they were a big influence on the Dead and other 60's musicians.



Sorry Hodaddy, though from that time pretty much, I was never a big fan of the dead either, but I sure love the work that Garcia and David Grisman did together....I also love the kick ass blue grass sounds of "Old and in the Way" - another group that Garcia helped form and played in.

Buzzy, my wife slathers me at least once every other month with Advantage whether I need it or not...you should be safe coming over to the studio.

The Beatles aren't "moden rock", Mick. I don't listen to modern rock either.....I haven't bought a new rock record in at least 8 years, probably more.

Jazz is great, I like it, but some of it tends to wander off the melodic side of things, and for me I lose interest.

That's just me tho'.

To me, modern rock is anything after the 1950's, when garage bands and amateurs started making rock music. As for jazz, me too. My preference is song and melodic based jazz. Jazz with a context. Free jazz, fusion, hard bop don't really do it for me anymore. West coast and cool, that's were its at for me, baby!
