    I've been into Roy since watching Made in about 1979. Can't get into much other music for long but I do like Arlo Gutherie. I always drift back to Roy.
    I'm 45 now and a short (not bald) haired hippy would enjoy chatting about Roy especially with any lost female fans that I could get on a wave length with as my current partner hates him.:wink::biggrin:

    Hmm, short-haired hippy sounds like a contradiction in terms but I guess I might count as one as well! I was a bit late to be a true hippy but did the best I could in the mid-70s. I'm now a scruffy accountant :-( Other halves do seem to have an aversion to Roy, unless met in Roy Appreciation Society circles. I remember a girlfriend who was left unmoved by Hallucinating Light <shock, horror>! The current SWMBO enjoyed seeing Roy at the 100 Club and finds his quiet stuff more palatable then most of my noisy music but would rather do without him, I think...

    Welcome aboard, anyway, and don't forget to look out some Nick Harper CDs and events.

    Hi SpecialX, welcome to the site! I probably count as a balding one-time hippie, I think you're in good company....

    Can anyone in their 40s really be called a "hippy"?

    Or should that be "hippie"?

    Now, as someone who was alive in 67 and 68, let me tell you young whipper-snappers, aye lad, when I were a lad ... "and bla bla bla"

    Just a thought.



    PS A small prize in the form of my ultimate respect for recognising the quotation at the end of the above ramble.

    However ...

    ... not, in the least, wishing to be thought both rude AND grumpy, let me add another word of welcome to SpecialX.

    Rock on.

    At a guess, "She Who Must Be Obeyed".
