Interesing, yes. And kind of sad.  I started going to rock concerts in the early 70's, and it was all about the experience.

Far out, man

I remember the early seventies.  Happy days.

The early 70s must have been a wild time in the US. In Ireland it was drab, though a massive improvement on the 1950s.

The early 70's...and late 60's...some of the greatest music, one of the ugliest wars. It was a very confusing time to be young in America.

"The more things change, the more they remain the same." (Who said that?)

One thing I realized when I was watching some of the I&E footage ... that wasn't a rock concert, that was performance art. I have nothing against it but it does seem to be yet another barrier to new acts who can't afford such stuff.
Are you tough enough to be kind?

I don't doubt it.

Thank goodness there's place for more than one kind of art in this world.
