Ah, the "Human Be-In!" I was there, wandering around the speaker stack at stage left, shooting film as part of my 'young starving photographer' gig.

I also caught their last live show at Winterland. Good times!

OMG, that was it!! I was there too, with a couple of friends and we were pretty lit. Didn't go to the show at Winterland, which was just as well because because I didn't have the money. This is what I looked like (a few years later, but close enough)

That'll take some digging. There's bound to be a tintype around somewhere...

Funny thing about being a photographer is that I'm never in the pictures...

Josh Groban is very popular today. Barbara Streisand is alive and still singing. John Denver would be alive, had he not crashed his plane. Celion Dion is also very good and alive. And the dead ones were still very good.

There aren't many current singers that I think are really special and have great voices (though I know there must be a few)

Michael Buble is still alive and kicking, and young. Problem is these days there's not as much emphasis on talent... its marketability which counts.

I like Tom Jones & Elton John myself. I think they stand out as great voices and singers.
