BH Help: Why so little interest in performing 60s (94* d) RE: Help: Why so little interest in performing 60s 28 Aug 02


Michael R. you are so right--all has to do with memory and your youthful years. Nostalgia is a strong force. I am reminded of a true story of a person I knew who cried a few days after the funeral of his father---he said he really was crying for his lost youth and now realized his aging since he never cared for his father that much.

We live with our fond memories.

But, Mted brings up another point---the produced orchestral Weavers---as an example. Even Pete Seeger now says that they felt and looked like performing monkeys in their monkey suits. Yet--in truth--that and groups like Kingston Trio (harken back to the earlier part of the thread) did introduce people to "folk" music. I still never did understand the intrique with the Kingston Trio though----folk ala beach boys.
