The music was amazing
the media didn't have control
when music told a story
a simpler time, and best of all...
The music was real quality stuff
Rap didn't exist yet
They didn't use sex to sell stuff like laptops
you actually had to have had talent to become famous
The 60's-early 70's was the high point of rock: Classic rock, acid rock/psychedelic, folk music, and the beginning of metal (in the early 70's)
The Continental Hyatt House on Sunset Strip (also known as the riot house) in LA was a popular hangout for musicians.
Jim Morrison from the Doors would frequently visit the Whiskey A Go-Go
No Disney Channel...ahh :)
No perverts on Myspace
There was no Lauren Conrad or Audrina Patridge in sight. No reality TV. At all.
For a better understanding of what I mean:
-Watch Almost Famous
-Tune into Vh1 Classic (channel 235)
-try playing a guitar
-watch austin powers ;D
-talk to a hippie(they are fun)
-Listen to "I wish i was a punk rocker(with flowers in my hair)" by Sandi Thom
