Catching up (a bit) with music1967.com

I have been so absorbed in life and work that I’ve been completely slack when it comes to all my online life: music1967.com, social media, and yes, this blog.

I’m going through the manuscript for Japan from Anime to Zen, and even that has been slowed by my life and homemaking work. I’ve been getting settled in a new home, a new life, some new, even special, friendships. Blogging feels completely beside the point. The velocity of my life outstrips my ability, or desire, to capture it.

I’ll come with new details on all of that once things are a bit more settled, but suffice to say that changing one’s life entirely is a time-consuming process! But in the end, it will all be worth it – and my, the stories I have to tell!!

I feel worst about not posting consistently to music1967.com. We’re finishing Week 35 of 2020 today, and I just posted Week 32 of 1967. Slacker! But the others are coming.

For now, please take a look at Week 32, August 6-12, focused on San Francisco. The centerpiece is George Harrison’s ill-fated stroll around the Haight Ashbury district, but there’s more: The ongoing growth of the San Francisco music scene, with some important comings out and recombinations: Janis Joplin and Big Brother and the Holding Company see the debut of their first album, but also: John Fogerty returns from his stint in the National Guard to his longtime band, who, by the end of the year, will change their name; Guitarist Boz Scaggs comes to San Francisco from Texas and joins his buddy Steve Miller’s Blues Band; and a young Carlos Santana, just graduated from high school, and still washing dishes for spending cash, gets serious about his Blues Band.

Elsewhere, things go horribly wrong for playwright Joe Orton, and the movies grow increasingly violent.

More weeks of music1967.com are coming soon! Thank you for your patience.

I arrived Thursday night in Brooklyn, and nearly a week in, I already feel like a changed man. It’s not New York of course,  it’s the people I know, and the new people I’ve met, and old friends I’ve connected with. And some very interesting experiences. New York is a vortex, and it sucks me […]
