Classic Rock is Alive and Well

I recently took my 14 year old daughter and 2 of her friends to San Francisco for the day. I put the kibosh on tourist spots like Union Square, Fisherman's Wharf and China Town. We were going deep - I took them to the Haight. It has been 20 years since I lived a couple of blocks from the Haight, but not a whole lot has changed; oh yeah, there's a Mcdonald's and a Gap, but there are still cosmic people, funky shops, peace signs everywhere and bongs for sale. There are still concert posters of Janice, the Doobie Brothers, The Grateful Dead, even though that 1960's hippies movement is long gone. Well, the girls loved it! In fact, all three of them went home with tie dyed t-shirts with the street sign intersection "Haight-Ashbury" on the front, commemorating events that happened some forty years ago, thirty something years before they were born. Needless to say the cockles of my heart were warmed! It was so cool! The moral to the story, or the trip, is that classic rock is alive and well, and living in the hearts and souls and on the t-shirts of the next generation. Really, I ask you - how far out, hip, and groovy, is that?
