Don't make the mistake of equating Christianity with
spirituality. Disproving Christianity, or exposing its
flaws etc. does NOT mean there is no supreme being.
"There are many paths to God." I'd venture to say one
might even be at the end of a telescope.

I think it's pretty obvious that Elvis patterned his
career after Sinatra's. Teen Idol to movies to Vegas.

Not every Elvis song, but his Rockabilly (which is
what he was famous for) songs. Lennon even wrote "Run
For Your Life" from a line in the Elvis song "Baby
Let's Play House." One of the first things Elvis
recorded. Lennon wasn't shy about praising Elvis,

I don't know...but when I watch the interview from
when they first came over, and the footage on Sullivan
etc., they were pretty sarcastic and snide. First US
interview: "Are you going to get haircuts?" "He just
had one." "Will you sing for us." "No, we need money
You might want to watch the Anthology DVDs.

Well, first of all they were on Shindig in late 1965
or early 1966, but ICSFM was their most psychedelic
single. And it was after the British Invasion. The Who
are only part of the Invasion by default...they really
didn't get popular in the US until Tommy.

Can't do it. You listen to the difference between 1965
and 1966. It's there to be heard. Things were
changing, and by `67 it was full-fledged Acid Rock.
Sgt. Pepper's, Purple Haze (named after a type of
acid!), even Relax! Donovan, Moby Grape, Doors, Iron
Butterfly, Pink Floyd, Byrds, Traffic, Procol Harum,
Love...Bubble Puppy! Even the Beach Boys did Good
Vibrations in 1966! That is definitely an acid song.

Um...perhaps where YOU were. I heard this stuff on AM
radio, and not a great station either! I know they
were reporting about "hippies" and drugs in 1966 on
the news.

More slush every day. Great.

No, that's the problem here...too much heat.

Look, you young whippersnapper...I'll run with you

Yeah, I'm almost ready too. Except perhaps for paying
for the wedding. I need to make sure she knows about
how much more satisfying it is to get married by a
Justice Of The Peace...perhaps Scott can talk to her
about religion...

That's how I'm reading it. You should hear them rant
and try to justify. It's getting nonsensical.
