    ...who would have liked to have been born earlier?

    Experienced the 60's hippie culture, and the 70's looks to me like an awesome decade, especially music. Maybe even some would like to go further back?

    What do you think?

    me too actually because my parent were born in the 50's and they were at the right age in their teens and twenties to fully appreciate what is my favourite decade of the 70's (even though i wasnt born then! ) lol

    Ah the days of pirate radio would have been good :yep: and days where everything wan't computerised but there was a sense of change. Although musically, it has to be the 60s rather than 70s for me.

    You'll never really know what it was like though. People romanticise the times in which they were young and happy.

    No, I've been told the 60's were a very bad time. People were constantly being beat up because of "race" wars.
