I was a young pup in the 70's, but my parents took me to see all those bands you mentioned in Austin, and quit a few more. The boat races, monster truck ralleys were enhancing the tractor pull. Computers started to take hold a little. I specifically remember the invention of dog catchers and city law men. That was a sad day for us all. Carrying a gun down the street with rabbits hanging off your belt was illegal by 1980, so I did it while I could. The old hillbilly ways still existed in the 70's, they done regulated a whole culture to asmililate. We ended up with Red Necks out of the Hillbilly opression in the 70's. All the hippies moved to the woods and fell in love with the farmers daughter. So the hipneck was born of the idealist city slicker and the country mates. I remember gas hitting $1 and everyone thought it was Armageddon. I used to go buy my dad beer and cigarettes driving a full size backhoe down the street, didn't need a license and the grocery folks knew my dad, so it was okay. So many memories, I will surely think of more. I used to shoot out the street lights from my window, we voted not to have pavement or lights, but they gave them to us and charged us anyway. I liked it dark back then, and I was a good shot.

I remember my grandfather talking, WW11 vet. He said he felt sorry for the modern soldier. He said, "Soldiers don't even know what they are fighting for, at least we knew that Hitler was deserving of our attack, but the young men today don't even understand why they are asked to kill." I thought that was profound.

Things are worse now than back then, people used to riot and stand up against The Man. We are in several Vietnam's right now, yet nobody is rallying, occupy wall street was close, but everyone gave up before any change. We stand up for economics now, we used to stand up for justice and peace.
