Default The 60-70's rock age phenomen

This post by Voyeur lead me on to the following thoughts.

How old were the guys at the time they created all their hits which are still so popular? Around 25 years.

How many bands (with members of the same age) that have a comparable number of hits which people will still remember and sing 40 years later could we count today?

Will the time when we see so many great bands like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones or CCR ever repeat?

No we wont ever see anything like it again, the 60's were just another page in the book, a book of transformation, going from prude, polite kids of the 40's to teenagers in the 50's to the fairly loose and free kids of the 60's, everything changed in the 60's, the music, the politics, the ways of life, the technology. (you can close the book now, since from 1977 on up nothing has changed, dishonest politics, fights for fuel, wars....and the 4 spectacular kids that made up CCR, John, Tom, Stu and the Doug will never repeat again, the conditions were right and what struck was CCR....and then just like a thunderstorm they were gone.

It has been 4 decades since their heydey. The musical magic that was Creedence Clearwater Revival will not likely be again. Like the Beatles, it was a moment in time that we now relive through our memories of the day and the music that continues to live on for us all.
