dam hippies!! I grew up in the 60s and 70s when we smoked dope drank beer and layed on the floor in front of the speakers with Black sabbath or Led Zeppelin or pink floyd shaking the wolfer! Best songs ever were songs you couldn't dance to.

Nope, before my time, born in 52. Heard it yes many and many a time. Never danced to it.


Can't be too many left that have.

Interests wide and widely varying.
Happily married 18 years. Retired on SS with lots of time to spend.
Started with .223 Ultra Bull barrel. Added .357 Talo barrel. Added an action and stock set bought here, 7.62x39 barrel. Then bought complete guns .444 Marlin and .300 Blackout. Leaving me at 4 complete rifles plus a barrel. Plus a 9mm stub job bought here, and I have been finding and buying H&R shotguns at our local pawn shop where they seem to go cheap.

Ah yes the '50s; I guess that was my 'my era', since I graduated high school in '54,. and was in the military in '55. No, I never danced, nor did I

get taken by rock & roll. Actually, music per se, played a very small part in my life, just as it does today. My preference in popular music

would be in decades before the '50s, for as much as it counts.

However I would prefer the culture today were the same as it was in the '50s.

Yes, before somebody climbs upon my case, the '50s had it's flaws, such as racial prejudice, which had to exculpated, but by the end of the

'50s, itwas well upon it's way out. Of course, today's culture also has it's prejudices, and even more of them since one political party has

taken to exploiting minor differences of race, religion, sex, age, national origin etc. In fact, many of us here are apparently of the

"untouchable" class, Being "old white men"..

Generally speaking, our culture of the '50s was more honest and forthright (IMO), especially in one to one relationships, and facing the world

as it exists.. Just my $ .02, take it or trash it !

No never did dance as I have 3 left feet and no rhythm, graduated high school in 51 and off to the Korean war. I have looked at the Texas 2 step I might be able to do that one as it is moistly walking but at my age best to forget it and be a wall flower.

Same here Deacon.."3 left feet and no rhythm".. Guess that is why I never got hooked on R&R ! Before the cell phone age, I recall seeing

people at the red light, in the other lane..with their heads jerking spasmodically, back and forth. I assumed they were listening to music..
