1969. The first manned lunar landing. The first flight of a Boeing 747. Woodstock.
What was happening in the world and what was happening in rock music converged 45 years ago. A young generation's strong anti war, pro peace-and-love sentiments were frequent lyrical subjects, on stages from Woodstock to the Fillmores (East and West) and in recording studios all over the world.
For classic rock fans, the month of February 1969 is remembered for one band's debut studio album, another's first live album, a turning point in more than one career. All of you Rocky and Bullwinkle fans may now proceed to set Mr. Peabody's WABAC machine to February 1969, for a ride down the classic rock history timeline.
