70s Rock – A Decade of Turmoil and Great Rock Bands

The early 70s continued the theme established in the late 60s.  Turbulence. First, the Vietnam War finally was starting to wind down, but the effects on society and music were huge. Second, the ‘generation gap’ had widened. Mistrust by youth of the establishment was rampant, fueled by the war, and the Watergate scandal.  Finally, drug use was now commonplace, especially the use of marijuana and cocaine.

The music reflected this change in society, or perhaps helped to drive the change.  Also, FM radio was becoming more popular and FM stations played many of these bands, when AM radio wouldn’t, for various reasons.  It was a very interesting time. And the music that came out of this time was to stand the test of time, and become ‘classic rock’!

So, ARE YOU READY to step back in time?  Back to the days of peace, love, long hair, bell bottoms, incense, scented candles, and non-stop partying?? Peace, and Rock On!
