The 1960's is undoubtedly the most original, creative, and intense decade in modern American history. With wars on all fronts: political, artistic, social, racial, and philosophical, the 60's moved to the rhythms and words of Free Love, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, Turn on, Tune in, Drop out, and many other revolutionary artists and thinkers, in the restless fight for freedom. Acid, marijuana, mescaline, heroin, mushrooms, and just thinking for yourself, all became new powers of protest, ways out, and affirmations against the old guard. The shocking assassinations and deaths of President John F. Kennedy, RFK, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, and protesting college students, set fire to the country! A fire that lit the birth of the Hippie, the Hell's Angels, the Black Panthers, and the Manson Family. All the while, the Vietnam War, one of the most unpopular wars in American history, became the bedrock of protest, patriotism, and civil unrest. By the end of the decade, the senseless 1969 slaughter of actress Sharon Tate and the universally captivating Moon Landing, held the world's breath with fear and hope. It was the decade of decades to experience. It was the Court of the Crimson King.
