|Turned 16 in October... My fav albums were Strange days and Disraeili gears. The Beatles Sgt Peppers did not have a hit single and was a huge hit something that was a sign of things to come. My older brother bought a sterio system for his room, He actually could afford a full length record.. the term "hippie" became real when my girlfriend visited San Francisco and took pictures of what was going on. My brother left for Nam in November and I got his sterio .|

|The beginnings of the "Hippie" movement. A huge cultural change begins in America.|
Birth control pills become common. Mention of the Bee Gees hooking up with Stigwood, George Clinton arrives on the scene--the seeds of Disco. Drug use first becomes widespread, starts becoming cool. The world of American Graffitti ends, a different world begins. Viet Nam and the civil rights movement are major factors.

|1967 ... |
Saw The Monkees live in concert! Unfortunately Jimi Hendrix was not opening the show I attended.
Remember sitting in a dark theater watching Monterey Pop with my friends. And news reports from San Francisco and the Summer of Love. And black-lights and psychedelic art and a peace sign on a leather string worn around my neck. And trying to get friends to join me in group meditations (yep - this would have been the year I became a hippie-child).
