    Especially if it was 1972, which is when "Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress" was written, recorded,
    and released. ;)

    Born in 1966, I would say I was barely self aware by the time 1969 came around. But I was the youngest of 5 and our house was a pretty wild place to be born into in the mid to late 60's. My brothers and sisters were teens and in jr.high/high school and then heading off to college. Hendrix and the Beatles are the first music I can remember.

    1 brother had a 1959 Chevy Impala convertible, sister had a 1967 Mustang convertible, other brother had a 1964 Plymouth Fury he and my dad were always working on so they could drag race it on the street on Friday and Saturday nights. I have some early memories of riding along on some of those. Same brother also had a 1967 Triumph TR6 motorcycle. I used to sit on the gas tank while he wheelied up and down the street.

    Our entire street seemed to be filled with teenagers and hot rod cars. It was kind of an American Graffiti vibe, but with more of a late 60's early 70's feel. Lot's of hippies and pot smoke and cigarettes.

    By the mid 70's things kind of calmed down and I have been looking for cheap thrills ever since. :lol: :hippie:

    At my age I was at the mercy of my parents.
    Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys and Hank Williams Sr.

    My brother was into Beachboys The Beatles and a lot of The Ventures.

    My sister was into Motown

    My oldest brother was into Hendrix and Zeppelin.

    That was my sixties.

    I was just a tadpole back then... My childhood was spent watching Jerry Springer, Family Guy, South Park, Maury, and Dr. Phil.

    Did anyone else enlist their dad's help in making booby traps around the yard as a kid?

    Beatles grabbed me at age 10 in 1964 and handed the baton to the Grateful Dead at the end of the decade. There was a ton of other stuff in there, and it seemed like there was more goood stuff happening than any single human could track.
