    Well as a baby Boomer I grew up with it. I LOVE MUSIC!!!!!!! Without music and humour I would no doubt dry up and blow away.

    Mostly I listen to 60s-70s Rn R. Plus I love Classical, some Opera, Motown, Bluegrass, Rockabilly...basically 99.9% of it. Love CW since I grew up w/that as well.

    Basically I can't stand Ooompapa music. Don't care much for jazz, elevator or rap. Some rap is OK. Rap that degrades women or all about shooting/killing folks ain't my cup of tea.

    I also enjoy music from around the World but rarely get to hear some as I don't get the FM stations too well from 60M out.

    Well he may have felt like a motherless child but sometimes I feel like a "countryless" man and I believe it is due large part to his generation.

    I still have my old Woodstock Album with this song on it.

    Well Caertaker... I'm from that generation and I'm one of the good guys. Not all Hippies are bad.

    I just spent 2H watching music vids. Thanx ANG.

    Nothin wrong with the politics of an aging, gun totin hippie. Just a different breed....that's all. Often misunderstood. There's one in my bathroom mirror every morning. At least I think that's what that is in there. I may have misunderstood.

    I missed most of the Hippie heydays, I was a mere lad in the late '60's but I loved and still love the music. At least it WAS music unlike some of the stuff these days.

    Havens was from the generation who wanted to change the way they lived and viewed the world. They didn't want to "conform" or do like their parents. Pretty much like me, except I find now that I am becoming more like what they were. Sometimes the radicals don't have the answers and the changes they make really don't help.

    But it's all about the music my friends, that is what came about and it did indeed make a difference.

    Rest in peace Ritchie!

    I was never a big Richie Havens fan, but I loves me some rock and roll. There were some great performers at Woodstock. I too am part of that gun-totin hippie generation.

    Sorry to hear that he passed away, I really liked him.

    I was a teenager in the 60's but not a hippie. Not everyone was. Most of the "hippies" I knew came from quite privileged homes, never wanted for anything and generally were just spoiled, lazy kids. That's a generalization but it's what I saw.
    Funny thing about hippies is that they hated big government, now they adore big government.

    Anyway, RIP Richie .

    Sadly, there were no hippies where I was. Green uniforms and short haircuts kind of destroyed the spirit of the movement, don't you know?

    This is for you JL....I officially became a teenager during the summer of 1965. I didn't really start turning into a Hippie till I got out of the Service in 1975.

    Right now my hair is longer than it's ever been. Longer now than the first 3 years after I got out. But not too many Hippies then or now wear Hickory shirts. They used to be made in America. They're still made in a NATO country with American parts. I still prize most of the stuff my folks taught me when I was a kid at home. If I had to put it in numbers I'd say I'm 85% Redneck American and 15% Hippie American.

    I have no problem with true freedom loving hippies.

    The ones I don't understand are the hippies who cherry pick freedom's or clamor for more government. I guess those are more greens than hippies. Actually threy are watermelons, green on the outside red on the inside.

    That's a provocative concept you're putting out there Phred. Your mentioning 'green' had me thinking of the go green movement currently underfoot. Every time I see something about building green it's still always some huge house like 2500-4000 square feet if not more. I'd get lost in a house that big. Or most of it would be a safe room.

    I've been a student of sorts of true alternative housing since around 1975. There's really a vast plethora of alternative building materials that virtually no one takes advantage of.
    I think a large reason why people don't see this stuff is cuz as soon as they're done with something they just throw it out. What a waste.
