If the conviction of peace and love would have been stronger than doing drugs and free sex, then your influence on the world would have been much more substantial.

With that statement, you just demeaned our entire generation.  Those who did drugs and engaged in free sex were a small, apathetic minority.  Those of us with clear minds did much to effect change in the social and political environment in this country.  United States history bears that out.  We were very mature in our thoughts, demeanor and studies.  If you were around at the time you would have witnessed it firsthand.

As for your agrarian allegory,  it's not a very good analogy for our efforts at the time.  As I mentioned before, we had our successes as well as our failures.  It's up to each succeeding generation to learn from the mistakes made by the previous generation and advance the cause.

Oh, and a conservative mind tends to be selfish, as those who don't care about constructing a better future. And a progressive mind not only sees the problem but also looks for a solution, for the present and the future.

Talkin' about my generation? Putting us down because we got around more than you?

We weren't sowing seeds for a future harvest. We were living for now.

Your generation seem to have become very conservative. "Hope I live to see the harvest" is not the same vision as "Hope I die before I get old".

Why do you feel I'm putting you down? At least I didn't put your generation below other generations, because as I said, that harvest is yet to be done.

You say you were living for now, which is good, but you also had to take care of that treasure, and you failed there. That's why the dream of the 60's had an end. If the conviction of peace and love would have been stronger than doing drugs and free sex, then your influence on the world would have been much more substantial.

By the way, I'm not defending my generation because I don't feel represented by people of my age. And I believe "I hope I die before I get old" is referring to the mind, not the body; or at least that's my interpretation.

I feel your generation sowed a treasure; but they weren't mature enough to do the harvest. In fact, no generation after yours was able to do the harvest. Hope that can be done one day.

He's doing things I wouldn't have picked up on if it wasn't for the fact that he benefited from an imbalance of levels between his amp and the amp of Mr Harrison.

I've always enjoyed this clip for that reason. I couldn't have analyzed it like you did but I just like how it sounds.

Just wanted to get this out of my brain since I had been thinking about it for about a week.

Thanks for that!

John had a pretty limited technical arsenal but what he did he did well. I think the ability to separate the instruments more on modern mixes is bringing out how well he drove the Beatles songs, particularly in their early more upbeat days.

Yes, thanks for posting the video, Casbah.  Nice observations.  John Lennon really shines here on rhythm guitar!
