Thanks for the post, classic song, 2 ric's , 1969 , good to see the ric's rocking
I was only 9 or 10 when I first heard this, it's almost a catch cry for my generation
Born to be Wild, Yes! But I feel some domestication has set in after another almost 4 decades! I still really enjoyed the song though degradation is creeping in my backdoor,
I've still got some life in me yet
! Rock on rebels with Ric's!
I remember in Australia at just about this time guys started growing their hair, slowly at first but in the mid 70's most guys had long hair! It really became somewhat excepted seen as cool rather than rebellious. I went to a private catholic school and most of us had hair well over our shoulders, half way down my back was mine, although only 15 I had been playing guitar for 8 years. I was well behaved and did heaps of charity music for the school, not once was I told to get a haircut!
In the end some of the younger lay teachers at our school had long hair! They were cool too! I think my mother used to cut my hair when I was asleep, she would only take 2 or 3 inches off,,,,It didn't bother me I still had plenty more and when your young it grows back really fast!
