Re: “Summertime and the Living Smells Like Patchouli

Next time you do a story about "hippie concerts," get a real "hippie" to write it. Or at the very least, someone who was born and alive to have experienced the era. The term "hippie concert" was never used. Not even someone's most square parents used it. In fact, people of the hip era didn't refer to themselves as hippies. That came much later after the era ended, which was about 1967. What followed were the wannabees, the drug dealers, anarchists, the born again Christians, drug addiction, prostitution, and disease all experienced by those who converged on the hip movement. The hippies left in 1967, not approving of the scene or the people and groups who infiltrated to take advantage of the "freedoms" which mostly were false freedoms. It was a "bummer."

Maybe the writer did see Gerry Garcia play, since he played up until the month he died in the 90's. But Phish?? Come on, that's an 80's group and a lousy one at that. And nobody in the hip movement ever did nitrous oxide. That's an 80's raver drug of choice. The "hippie clothes" were just modified clothing, inserts into blue jeans to make them baggier, bell bottoms. Everyone sewed their clothing, bell bottoms were not carried at Macy's for quite a while after. These so-called "hippie concerts" are nothing more than copy-cat followers who don't really get what the hip era was about. They weren't born until 20 or 30 years later.

So, if the Source wants to write about "hippies," get a real "hippie" or what they were really called, self proclaimed "cats" or "freaks." Bend has a lot of hippies, you can find them at the Senior Center, or wherever else 65-70 year olds hang out. Peace.
