Psychedelic patterns (1964- 1969)

The Rolling Stones
In the mid sixties, the graphic of op-art and colours of pop-art connected into the expression of mind situation. The bus of Ken Kesey has started his tour across America and offered LSD to everyone, who wanted it. The turbulent coloured patterns which decorated the bus became the symbol of countercultural revolution. The psychedelics empowered even London as 14 Hour Technicolour Dream in Alexandra Palace, where the style of MOD mixed with long hair, beads and naked girls were painted to harmonize with the lights.

After the release of Sgt.Pepper's lonely hearts club band, the Summer of Love in 1967 began. Its top took place when Scott McKenzie sang: ,,If you're going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair, if you're going to San Francisco, you're gonna meet some gentle people there.....´´. So the centre of Hippies was in California, especially in San Francisco and during the Summer of Love in 1967 the famous Monterrey Pop festival was held.

The era of Hippies continued and on 15th,16th and 17th of August 1969, Woodstock took place. This legendary festival is known as 3 days of Peace and Music. It was held in White lake and about 500 000 people came. Some of the performers who participated during the festival: Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane, The Who, Crosby- Stills- Nash & Young, Grateful Dead, Santana, Ravi Shankar, Joe Cocker, Joan Baez.

For more information find my article from July or August about Woodstock or read book about it by the main organizor of the festival Michael Lang, which I really reccommend.

Easy Rider (1969)
This amazing movie is directed by the main character Dennis Hopper. The another main character is Peter Fonda and the one of another role is acted by Jack Nicholson. It deals with two men traveling across America on choppers. They are knowing different cultures and they have to cope with then society and its prejudices. In the jail, they meet lawyer Jack Nicholson and he joins them. one night he is killed.They are driving alone again. At the end, they are both shot dead just because of their tramp look. This terrific film is decorated by cool music, beautiful countryside and unforgetable atmosphere.

I've heard of Jean Shrimpton. I hear she was a famous model in the 1960s, and her younger sister Chrissie was going out with Mick Jagger in the 1960s and she was his first serious girlfriend
