Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind
There was probably no better time in the world for music and concerts than the 1970s. By then, rock was well-established with technique and equipment. The times were introspective during the recession and humbling following the war. Teens were not rebelling anymore so much as doing what they want, feeling their influence and power.
With a variety like The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, Black Sabbath, Queen, Chicago, The Eagles, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Styx, Doobie Brothers, Journey, Bee Gees, Foreigner, Cheap Trick, AC/DC, REO Speedwagon, ZZ Top, KC and the Sunshine Band, Steve Miller Band, The Ramones, Blue Oyster Cult, Abba, Simon and Garfunkel, Kansas, and Led Zeppelin, anything was possible.
Inspired by lyrics, we had philosophers, mentors, and stylish idols left and right. If we needed to know about life and how to take handle it, we found it in some wise musical poetry written by our peers -
Ooh, the wheel in the sky keeps on turnin'I don't know where I'll be tomorrowWheel in the sky keeps on turnin'"
Wheel in the Sky"
