I was wondering what most people thought was the end of the real hippy? I said by 1976. Disco was starting and that was the anti-Christ in music for alot of people. We still have real left over hippies to this day but 76 was end of an era.

Actually it went way beyond Altamont Speedway. In retrospect it was just a rock festival that was violent and there was a murder. However it didn't stop the hippies from continuing to go to rock festivals, and the festivals continued throughout 1970 and 1971. But the feelings of anger at rock promoters, hells angels and other hippies did come to the surface at Livermore California

It ended when the word was first used--- from that point on anything that followed was someone else's def on a theme. Like all art....Clapton is God...Southern Rock....

'On the Hip' from the opium trade>'On the Road' from Jack and Dean>...

'Hippy' died when it was revealed as something defined. Van Gough did his thing and suddenly it was defined. Dylan did his thing and then turned 'electric' when it became defined.

When the Summer Of Love was over the 'Hippy' was long gone. That was 1967.

Ugh I remember watching that on TV when I was a teenager and had my first panic attack. It was a scene I never thought possible in our world and freaked me out badly

Anyone here who lived in a commune way back when?

Hippie communes were still alive and well into the early Seventies.

Maybe where you live, but they are still going strong(right down the road from me) just not as well publicised as they used to be. Basically the Same applies here that applies to Woodstock, if you have to ask you don't need to know.

Well, I'm too young for all of this, but I can appreciate points made by both TanDan and InnerEyeMike.

I think with any large cultural movement, you've got two groups, the minority of innovators who actually "are" it, then a majority of followers trying to "be" it.

What would you call the long-haired weed smoking teens and young twenties rocking out to Zeppelin, The Who, and Black Sabbath in the mid-70's? Did they have a name? I don't know, but that's who we were trying to be . . . we were too young to have lived it, but 8-10 years later we were trying to emulate our older brothers, older cousins, and young uncles. We thought were the shizzle, but they probably found us amusing, trying to embrace something that wasn't really ours, but theirs. We were faking it.

What we actually were, though, of course without realizing it, was grunge . . . long before anybody had ever heard of Nirvanna, Pearl Jam or Soundgarden.

So when the "movement" started in the late eighties/early nineties, my friends and I looked at each other and thought "this is a style? this is a look?" Man, that's the just way we dressed, because that's what we had.

I'm sure this is frequently the case when something organic becomes a commodity. Those buying it (or buying into it) are chasing something that's already gone.

In my mind, it didn't end...it just evolved.
The Human-Be-In held in SF in '67 brought the culture to the public eye, but it was alive and well in Greenwich Villiage in the early to mid 60's.


It's all a mind set. I watched plenty of "hippies" change there ways and mind processing once they joined in the festival "Viet Nam"

Every generation has a youth movement which gets coined.

Before Hippies, you had Beatniks (the Beat generation)...Beatniks were called Hipsters, Hipsters became Hippies, who became Punk Rockers. Punk Rockers added a little Glitter and became Glitter Rockers. We move on to grunge. from there....?
What do we have now?
I think of the Lyrical lines of Steely Dan's Kid Charlamane
"all those day glo Kids who used to paint thieir face, they've joined the human race...somethings will never change"

As others have said, depends on where you are talking about.

In some areas, the hippie movement was never anything more than a fad, and once it became unfashionable to be a hippie, they moved on to disco, or the next fad.

However, there are definitely parts of the US where that mentality took root in ernest and became the dominant paradigm, and it still is today. You have whole generations of hippies in places like California that grew up going to Grateful Dead shows (paging Krishna...) and think it's the most normal thing in the world that Mom and Dad smoke weed and drive a 1975 VW bus

Asheville, North Carolina and Burlington, Vermont are just two non-West Coast examples of towns where as far as I can tell, the hippies outnumber the non-hippies. A lot of my old Greenpeace friends live in Asheville, it's like a little mini-Berkeley up in them hills!

I'd also say that when I first moved to New Orleans in the 80s, the hippie scene was still alive and well there. It apparently took a little longer to get there, arriving in the 70s, but it took it's time leaving. I spent a lot of my college years hanging out with older hippies, they had cool record collections and the best weed

Although hippies lasted a few more years, the 60s came to an end with the closing of Fillmore east and West

Personally, in July, 1980, when some redneck burned down the Buffalo Bar.
But more realistically, historically, I'd have to go with the advent of disco.

I blame Travolta

Hey Linnie

I am from that time period and Thanks Mike for the interesting post which brought on many flashbacks LOL... I have had my own experiences with my hometown Hippies, and the Hippies from California.... It was a magical time, or perhaps the times are magical when your still in your teenage years or entering into your college years and young adulthood.. it's all knew and exciting. There were messages to spread everywhere about almost everything.. it seemed the young people were revolting against anything that had structure and a capitalist nature, civil rights, women's rights, Vietnam, VietNam, Viet Nam , the Chicago seven, elections, assassinations, and what that meant as a young person, music, and just being free to be , free to love, free , free, free, Flower Power . The message was great and had plenty of OLDER people paying attention and questioning their own direction and meaning.
But , as someone mentioned in earnest, it was just another fade , it was just who took it more seriously than someone else... it has plenty of life in it and keeps evolving into the newer version of what was/is HIP...now , today.

I think if your from that time period, you have your own awakenings in the death of it all... The disco era, certainly changed many into the polyester clothes and music was for dancing, and not sitting crossed legged at a concert and listening to the words or compositions of music... it was about The Hustle...

personally for me, I loved the Beatniks they were pure and honest or at least seemed that way to me.... they were really cool and had an insight all their own and were into the music coffee houses all over Manhattan.. and new artists were taking stage at every corner to sing their stories and spread the word... We need more of that today...

I can never deny the music was explosive and the best..in the late 50's , 60's , 70's
I feel privileged to have had the experiences that I have had from that place and time.
