For Those That Were Around In The 60s: Do 'The 60s' Live Up To Their Myth?

Any fan of rock music is familiar with all of the mythology that surrounds the rock music of the 60s and early 70s, and with the way so many of us romanticize the rock music of the period. I am just curious to know what those of you who actually lived through the that era(say, 1963-1973) think: Was living in that era, with

The Beatles
Bob Dylan
The Doors
Led Zeppelin
Pink Floyd
Grateful Dead
The Rolling Stones
Janis Joplin
The Beach Boys
Simon & Garfunkel
Crosby, Stills, Nash, And Young
The Who
The Velvet Underground
Jimi Hendrix
Santana
Creedence Clearwater Revival
Jefferson Airplane
The original Woodstock Festival
etc etc

an experience that lives up to the mythology surrounding said era, or was it not all it's cracked up to be?

Much of it was myth--but the grand participation in the myth is what made it special. I remember it with fondness.

Doubt that that answers your question though. I was too young to fully experience it, but old enough to watch it unfold.
