“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.”1Β  Was the opening line of Charles Dickens book, “A Tale Of Two Cities,” which is about the chaos of the French Revolution at the turn of the 18th century. The same can be said of another revolution that took place over a century and a half later across the Atlantic Ocean in that period of time called the 1960’s.

The revolution was multi-faceted, involving culture, politics, race and the arts, but each area had a leader. The leaders in culture and music were Ken Kesey and the Grateful Dead. They began what was to be called the Hippie movement through LSD and music. The link below is of The Tom Snyder show in New York City back in 1981 when Ken Kesey and the Grateful Dead were the guests on the show. Check it out.
