“I believe that we, that this planet, hasn't seen its Golden Age. Everybody says its finished ... art's finished, rock and roll is dead, God is dead. F**k that! This is my chance in the world. I didn't live back there in Mesopotamia, I wasn't there in the Garden of Eden, I wasn't there with Emperor Han, I'm right here right now and I want now to be the Golden Age ...if only each generation would realise that the time for greatness is right now when they're alive ... the time to flower is now.”

― Patti Smith

“I wrote 'White Rabbit' as a fantasy song. I get most of my ideas for songs from either books or movies – and then I translate in my own way. I've always liked fantasy stories, ever since I was a little kid. I think, anyway, our generation is very concerned with fantasy, whereas the two previous generations were concerned with reality. They both had wars to cope with, so they had no alternative but to concern themselves with reality.” - Grace Slick

Bonnie Raitt: Early on, I knew if I could keep my act together, not die from taking drugs or drinking too much, then I might have some hope of a long career. All the people I looked up to, like Muddy or jazz players, they’d all been in it for the long haul – that’s what I wanted
There are talented people in music who have success with one big hit and then can’t repeat it and are known for only one thing. In blues and roots, you sell less but you can last a lot longer and age gracefully. If the music excites you, you keep growing and stay interesting and find new ways of saying things in the grooves you love.

“Alienation from nature and the loss of the experience of being part of the living creation is the greatest tragedy of our materialistic era. It is the causative reason for ecological devastation and climate change. Therefore I attribute absolute highest importance to consciousness change. I regard psychedelics as catalyzers for this. They are tools which are guiding our perception toward other deeper areas of our human existence, so that we again become aware of our spiritual essence. Psychedelic experiences in a safe setting can help our consciousness open up to this sensation of connection and of being one with nature. LSD and related substances are not drugs in the usual sense, but are part of the sacred substances, which have been used for thousands of years in ritual settings. The classic psychedelics like LSD, Psilocybin and Mescaline are characterized by the fact that they are neither toxic nor addictive. It is my great concern to separate psychedelics from the ongoing debates about drugs, and to highlight the potential inherent to these substances for self-awareness, as an adjunct in therapy, and for fundamental research into the human mind. It is my wish that a modern Eleusis will emerge, in which seeking humans can learn to have transcendent experiences with sacred substances in a safe setting. I am convinced that these soul-opening, mind-revealing substances will find their appropriate place in our society and our culture."
— Dr. Albert Hofmann

Keith Richards: “I pulled the plug on it. I got fed up with it.” While he admits he still has “a glass of wine occasionally, and a beer,” it’s a major step for a guy whose hedonism is a key part of his legend. “It was time to quit,” Richards says. “Just like all the other stuff.” Was it an adjustment? “You can call it that, yeah,” he says with a laugh. “But I don’t notice any difference really – except for I don’t drink. I wasn’t feeling right. I’ve done it. I didn’t want that anymore.”
Richards says he’s noticed a difference onstage at the band’s early 2018 shows: “It was interesting to play sober.” Adds Wood, “We’re weaving guitar parts a lot more conscientiously now. We’re much more aware of the gaps and the spaces between. We’re in our seventies, but we’re still rocking like we’re 40-year-olds, you know?”

“I always loved Jack’s bass sound... [one time during a live performance,] when I was supposed to be playing the piano, I just stopped and turned around to face the speakers, not thinking about whether that abrupt move would mess up the continuity of the song.” - Grace Slick on the power of Jack’s playing

Happy Birthday to Jefferson Airplane’s bassist, Jack Casady! The world is mesmerized by your skills. Wishing you a far out day. ✌️

8th April 1967, John Lennon took his Rolls Royce to coachbuilders J.P. Fallon Ltd in Surrey to enquire if they could paint his car in psychedelic colours. This was based on an idea by Marijke Koger ("The Fool" who was a member of Dutch team of gypsy artists). J.P. Fallon commissioned Steve Weaver's pattern of scroll and flowers for the Phantom V. The cost for having the work done came in at £2,000. A custom interior/exterior sound system was also installed as well as a Sony television; telephone (WEYBRIDGE 46676) and a portable refrigerator.

“I’m getting ready to sing. Some guy in the audience shouts: ‘Hey Gracie! Take off your chastity belt!’ I look directly at him and say: ‘Hey, I don’t even wear underpants.’ I pull my skirt up for a beaver shot, and the audience explodes with laughter. I can hear the guys in the band behind me muttering: ‘Oh, Jesus.’” - Grace Slick

Keith Richards “Even Chuck Berry's leads are rhythm. It’s all two-string stuff, it’s beautiful. To me, there’s no such thing as rhythm guitarists and lead guitarists. The musician does that to himself by doing too much on one end and letting the rhythm section carry the rhythm. A guitar player is somebody that can play rhythm and lead. Chuck Berry’s solos take off as an extension of his rhythm work without losing the drive or point of the song.”

Hi, I thought that maybe for a celebration you will also enjoy my own story in Woodstock for its 25th anniversary. Please share if you like. https://youtu.be/vGn9jToskNA A documentary filmed in Hi8mm video! In 1994. I went to the town of Woodstock to do a little sociological research... In 2015 I met Michael Lang in NY and this is my pitch: In 2019, it's the 1st time in Human History that 3 generations will celebration the same event and will be connected to the Internet ". This means that the celebration is happening online. It is all transmedia ready ;-) WARNING: Music tracks have been changed for legal issues. The quality of the format, picture and sound is weak. I do not have the master tape of the editing, but this is fun and educational. A VERY SPECIAL THANKS TO MUSICIANS WHOM OFFERED THE MUSIC RIGHTS. And-Joy. Peace&Love
