GUEST,Sidewinder info pls: 60s music & spirituality (128* d) RE: info pls: 60s music & spirituality 28 Dec 04

Some fascinating insights into a time of upheaval and radical change - thank you for sharing your respective experiences. I do feel that the music of the 60s was not really that important to those great individuals and groups bringing about the changes. Sixtieschick do you think the work of the singer/songwriter becomes something more meaningful when he/she has released it and the public have analysed every last detail and turned it into prophecy, then several years down the line the artist says "I was stoned when I wrote it I haven't got a clue what it's about, it's just a piece of crap I wrote". Do you think people try and preserve their own self importance within a group by maintaining the myth that a single song is mana from heaven when in fact it is merely a pop record aimed at the charts rather than the consciousness of a nation? My opinion is that great people change things by their deeds and selfless acts rather than 3 chords and a catchy chorus. I would be interested to hear (see) your thoughts on these views.

Happy New Year.
