  1. Whew! Well, that is a beautiful quote that may capture a bit of what I am exploring about the effect of live music back in the sixties VS the way most live music is experienced now…

    Still contemplating…

    Thanks for sharing this.


  2. Huh; I wrote a whole thing last night about the show. It’s lost somehow.

    Anyway, that’s interesting, Choosing. My simple response is that music in the 1960s and early 70s was about trying to unite people by talking about unity and a common experience (“Smile on your brother…”). Maybe that was just the San Francisco scene. Punk rock succeeded to unite people by talking about one’s own experience, or a experience, and people identifying with that. I had not made that distinction before … and perhaps it’s too simplistic.

    I think your original response, or my interpretation, was that modern music is a discussion about oneself, or abstract ideas that are not unifying.

    I’m not trying to speak for you, just thinking out loud, and hoping to maybe help prompt you …
