Can you imagine getting to see The Clash live? Always heard they were great live. Born too late to do so myself.

Don't you think, if you go on wishing you were born earlier, you're going to miss the current favorite bands?

I've been going to shows since I was 14 years old. Even at the ripe old age of 28 I still manage to catch a bunch of local shows and 4 to 6 major (band) shows a year. I think I've 2 mind-blowing shows in my lifetime and too many to count where I wish I could get my money back.

I can't wait until time machines are invented so everyone who is obsessed with previous decades can go back, and SHUT THE **** UP.

I can't help thinking about the brilliant appearances I've seen so far.
I'd love to see some deceased artists, but it's not like I would have wanted to mis nowadays music. It's not like it's getting better. It's just still good.

For me its not just the music but the surroundings of what was taking place during the time of that music. Like in the late 60's when people like Hendrix and many others were just starting to get recognized and changing the face of music culture forever. I mean just being able to see the effects it was having in those times must have been exciting. Its almost as if nowadays everythings been done and is in some form or fashion just recycled offshoot of someone elses idea's. Nothing is that shocking anymore and almost everything is accepted. For example in the late 60's there were things that were being done that were just unheard of for those times. Unrealized moments of genius and historic events in the music industry. Woodstock then was nothing like the crappy Woodstock of my generation. Our woodstock didnt even stand for anything and ultimatley ended in violent acts of stupidity. Im all for being rebelious but the extent of what took place during that event was beyond comprehension of prooving any kind of legitimate point.

Not really. I used to think living in the 60s would be cool, but I've come to like the era I was brought up in, sort of like a parent loving a dysfunctional child. Actually, it's what I hate about it that makes it such an interesting time to live through. For instance, the last decade was complete shit, but how many people can say they lived through a war that had absolutely no meaning. And 9/11? George Bush? Fuck, I love this decade. All the people that grew up through this better go on to do something interesting with their lives.

A cure for wishing you were not born in a given decade is to play all the ****ty music, terrible movies, and wear all the miserable fashion that existed then.
