I saw a David Gilmour interview last night. A quote from it:
“Revolver ushered in the 60s”.
Pretty cool, eh?

Yeah, considering the 60s were more than half over when it was released.

Ironic that it was a revolver that also ended Lennon.
Hm, actually I don’t know if it was a revolver or not.

It was. A Charter Arms .38.

But that’s exactly the point. Do you think the bacchanalian and orgiastic
excess of s**, drugs, rock and alcohol was around in 1963 when McCartney was
singing “I Want To Hold Your Hand?”
No, it was a late-60s phenomenon.
Bruce y 2012-06-20 11:24:25
Era’s don’t neatly conform to the calendar. “The 60’s” is just a name.
I would say the 60’s started with Beatlemania in 1964 and ended with the end
of the Vietnam war and Nixon’s resignation in ’74. At that point, us hippies
patted ourselves on the back for a job well done and turned things over to
the next generation, who promptly dropped the ball and created Disco.
Mister charlie 2012-06-20 11:24:27
LOL! Funny AND true!
Danny caccavo 2012-06-23 14:35:10
Well, the ’70s were half-over when the ’60s ended…

Blackmonk 2012-07-01 15:20:57
That’s what I can’t stand about hippies. They keep patting themselves on the
back, thinking they did a good job, and complaining about how later
generations aren’t like them.
Mister charlie 2012-07-01 15:21:05
“…At that point, us
As someone recently said, DUCK. The fact that you missed the whole
point of this shows your prejudice, not hippies.
(FYI: This was a self-critique as much as an aghast glance at disco,
which was INDEED not of our genreation. Get over yourself.)
Blackmonk 2012-07-01 15:21:34
People often say things that reveal more than the point they intended.
But hippies often were self-righteous and intolerant of lifestyles different
than their own. “Songs that criticize the squares” was an entire musical
genre in the sixties.
Need I add that when George visited the Haight in SF, he wasn’t too taken
with hippies either?
Mister charlie 2012-07-02 00:02:26
Well, your intentions were certainly clear enough.
And whether that may be true or not it is still quite a leap for you to
decide what the OP was conveying.
So? People in general are many things, and no one here is saying
hippies weren’t as full as themselves as anyone else. But it’s you that
are making a case where none exists. Obviously you don’t count yourself
amongst the rest of humainty as far as having foibles?
Need I care?
Jim 2012-07-02 00:02:45
You mean they were…”human?”
The word “hippies” itself is wrought with negative political
overtones. Why not refer to them as the “60s Generation?” Probably
because that’s not as convenient a phrase for your straw man.
He wasn’t too taken with drug abusers, anyway. As far as “hippie
ideals,” George lived many of them much of his life.
And he even “criticized the squares” consistently–including on his
Blackmonk 2012-07-02 00:02:51
What intentions? I meant precisely what I said. There were no intentions beyond that.
You’re the only one talking about what he was “conveying.”
Maybe even more so.
As for “no one here” saying that, you seem not to have noticed that hippies
are frequently romanticized here.
But it’s you that
Compared to you, no.
It’s an on-topic point in this newsgroup.
Mister charlie 2012-07-02 00:03:16
You really need to learn to trim these unwieldy posts down. You’ve been
around the block enough times.
Sarcasm indicating your facile comment had nothing to do with what was
being said. A not uncommon occurence in your posts.
Not at all. He made a wise and humorous remark and you had to spill
your anti-hippie guts into it. So you’re bitter, who cares?
Maybe even less so.
So what? The point you keep trying to obscure was not ‘hippies’ at all but a generation.
George was high on acid and saw things in a startling light. BFD.
Point being none of this is the point of the OP. You’ve decided to
hijack the thread, ala Sally, to make some misbegotten point about your
problem with first-gens, something you can never be. OK, so you’re
jealous. We get it.
Blackmonk 2012-07-02 00:03:19
Now who’s reading motives into other people’s posts?
No, more so.
I’ll be happy to respond to the above as soon as you rephrase it as an intelligible English sentence.
Actually, I could. And for all you know, I am.
OK, so you’re
Typical, You can’t understand why someone doesn’t think your generation was
perfect, so you whine that I’m jealous.
Mister charlie 2012-07-02 00:03:22
Reading your posts, period. They speak for themselves.
Ah. Proof please? Empirical declarative statements like that demand
evidence to back them up.
Hippies was only mentioned by you, not the OP. Or me. Now is that clear enough for you?
I do know,. You’re not. I’ve been around long enough to know you.
My generation? Guess you’ve shown your hand again. Like it’s tough for
me to guess your age.
Funny thing. Neither I nor the original poster said anything about our
generation being perfect.
More typical projection on your part.
Blackmonk 2012-07-02 00:03:25
What do I have to be bitter about? That I’m not as old and senile as you?
You just threw a couple of adjectives onto the word “statements” without
worrying about what they meant, didn’t you?
Actually, they were mentioned by you. They weren’t mentioned by the OP, but
they were one of the more self-righteous aspects of the generation he mentioned.
How old am I?
No. You’re getting defensive about your generation, whether or not I’m part
Like it’s tough for
Oh, guessing. I thought you knew me?
And yet you go postal whenever someone criticizes it.
Mister charlie 2012-07-02 00:03:28
Learn how to properly snip these ridiculously long threads. You’re old
enough to know better.
Again, your insults speak for themselves.
Avoiding the topic, as always.
-Prove- the hippies were MORE SO self-righteous. ‘I await your reply.’
If you cannot, then don’t make gross and ridiculous accusations against
an entire generation. That’s absurd and you know it.
No. Sorry. Your railing against the generation you are so obviously
jealous or frightened of was initiated soley by you.
You’re not. But again you derail the point to obfuscate. Sweet.
I know your age group. I probably know your age to but I don’t care to
expend the memory required to remember it.
And yet that has nothing to do with what I just said, typically.
You argue just to argue, you will say anything until you’ve exhausted
your opponent or your ‘audience’. You’ve been proven wrong time and
time again yet you retreat wordlessly after being bested rather than
just own up to it and let it go.
It’s a psychosis of some sort. Not my problem. But when you want to
address your unrealistic hatred of people older than you in an adult
manner we can. Otherwise there’s no point playing bouncey ball with
Blackmonk 2012-07-02 00:03:31
But too young to care.
Interesting. You’re reading deeper meanings into the fact that I’m insulting you.
If you had any idea what you were saying, you’d have realized that I can’t
give objective proof for an emperical observation.
It’s an emperical observation.
I though I made a comment about hippies, not an entire generation. Which is
Whatever. I’m neither jealous nor frightened of them. I just dislike them.
Not all of them, but the hippie culture as a whole was characterized by the
negative traits I mentioned.
And you’re the youngest possible first generation Beatles fan?
So, everyone younger than you is part of a different generation? Either give
precise dates when your generation began and ended or admit that you’re
talking out of your a**, as usual.
You’ve never proven me wrong. You just keep repeating yourself and asserting
that you’ve proven me wrong, despite never having any real evidence to prove your point.
Oh, now I “hate” people older than myself.
Have you ever done ANYTHING “in an adult manner?”

I once knew a lot about bismuth complexes. There was a lot of very
important information to know about that sort of thing. I knew it. It
was good. Then I forgot what it was I was trying to say to people when
they talked about bacon. So, I basically moved into a half-hearted and
erroneous supposition of Italian motorsports and politics. By the way,
when it comes to politics, Sicilians are not ones to model the process
(ANY process) after – well, unless it’s about preparing seafood, but
then there’s always the Greeks to take into the first bar when the key
isn’t working in A flat.
That’s probably all rumor. Right where “one” is.
