Gas was a mere 31 cents per gallon and the average rent was $118 per month.

In pop culture “The Sound of Music” was released, the Beatles played their famous live concert at Shea Stadium and the Grateful Dead played their first concert in San Francisco – just to na...

At last summer's Rock the Bells, less that two minutes after Wu-Tang Clang busted into their first song, which is to say five minutes after the yo-yo-yos concluded, my dad plopped himself down on the grassy knoll. "These guys suck," he muttered into the tattooed shins of the toking Latino in front of him.

It's not that my pop is the typical old guy who views rap as an example of all that is wrong with the world; he had just nodded along to Cypress Hill several sets before, even mouthing a few choice lyrics to "Insane in the Membrane." No, my dad is just not a fan of live music he can'...
