The present decade is so un-groovey.
(plus, it would put Dickey back in the band)

Sign up and show your support here, man.

I'll take that trip to the 70's again.

I had some unfinished business named Nancy, that I need to take care of.

My Dear Nancy, the one I wish had never got away.

But I was 17 and running with my buddies was more important. At least I thought it was.

I loved the 70's. My fave.

Indeed, I still have the bell bottoms. Want that body back though - they only get a little bit over my knees these days.
I graduated from high school in 1970, so I'm with Renee - bring back 1964-1976 (to be more specific). The Beatles through
Skynyrd.

Besides the internet, advances in health care (that not everyone can afford), more reliable cars, some cool consumer electronics, and better air conditioning - name the things that are better now than they were in the 70's ?

I don't think there are many, but it would be interesting to see what people would list...

Amen Brother. I loved the 70's. I get homesick for the 70's from time to time.

If I had a time machine I would go back..........and visit for a few years.

I wouldn't go back... even if I was born in the middle of the 70's...

I don't want to do something that has already been done.
