The series which takes a nostalgic look at the popular culture of years gone by takes a trip back to the era of psychedelia, hippies and free love. From 1967 to 1970, as mind-expanding music was provided by Jimi Hendrix and the Doors, thousands of hippies turned on, tuned in and dropped out at Woodstock. And the whole experience was captured on film by Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda in 'Easy Rider'
Yesterday there was a programme about hippies on BBC one, and I so wish that I had been a hippie. I really do!
I just wanna be in a permanent psychedelic trance. I nearly told my parents during it that I had done LSD, cos they were talking about mind altering drugs etc but didn't.
But was such a good time. I was born in 79, and missed out on so much really.
