Hippies are back…

GR logoWell, after the numerous reunions, which keep on going… we have that thing with the retro music of the previous eras, especially the 80s and the 70s. Now the 60s are also making a comeback and especially the “hippies” 60s! Yeap you got it right! Hippies are back, but for some reason now they are also called millennials! Yeah the barefoot ones with the flowers on their heads that love peace and nature and wanna make the world a better place!
 
I’ve been upon a young band lately (and not the only one) that they were so much into the “hippies culture”, even though they were too damn young… I think their parents haven born during that era, so they didn’t get the chance to live it. So what drives a bunch of young guys to go into the hippies thing?! I think it’s not their huge love for peace and planet earth… it’s just that music is making circles and in our time… there are so many “music waves” that need to go back so as to find their music identity and have something to hold on.
 
After all the older eras always have a special “glamour” to those who haven’t lived them at all and will always look like something fascinating to the young ones. Hence while we’re getting closer to 00s… the 90s, 80s, 70s and 60s are again popular and have taken the lion’s share in today’s music scene… or something like that?!
 
PS: Somehow my mind went to the “hipsters movement”, which are like filthy bastards with beards and are “trying too hard to be different” and finally the have become trendy… how about that?!
 
PS2: The Model Spotlight of this month is the wonderful Liz Gorgeous. Check out her interview and pics here.
 
PS3: This month’s editorial is dedicated to the great vocalist and songwriter Andre Matos (Viper, Angra, Shaman), who suddenly passed away a while ago at the age of 47 from a heart attack. Apart from being a great musician, Andre was also a great person and he had so much more to offer to our beloved metal music. Thx for the music Andre… Rest In Peace…
