60's Psychedelica

All about the 60's: not just sex drugs and rock 'n roll.

If you've stumbled your way to this Blog, and like me, is obsessed with the 60’s then you’ve come to the right place. Listening to the music of that time, from artists and bands which include
Bob Dylan,
Janis Joplin
Iggy Pop
And Neil Young

Ive realised one cannot understand the world we live in now unless you look at where we come from, and that applies to the music world too. Bob Dylan, in his time was like Snoop Dog, with is lyrical rhymes and poems, had hit after hit while still commenting about society around him and the down falls of man kind, Iggy Pop is so similar to NOFX, sometimes angry and sometimes just fucking insane: use music to comment or try and understand the world they live in, and thus if we: 30 + years later really wanne understand the 60’s we have to look at the music.

Then again think about the feeling behind it, the meanings: no one now can bite into a guitar while playing 'Foxy Lady' and cause a global music revolution like Jimi Hendrix.

Anyway that’s enough of me rambling, and for the hard core punk'ers; 60's punk bands include Television, Velvet Underground, MC5, Johnny Thunders and the New York Dolls (both early 70's) check then out, its worth it!

Have look at these sights: its just biographies and places to find links so forgive me if they not of the best journalistic quality, refer us to better sites if you know of any

Thanx for reading
