Posing in front of my '71 Chevy Monte Carlo
(check out those Earth Shoes!)
Attempting my best McCartney impersonation in front of a Beatles portrait I painted myself
(it wasn't really that hard to do and I'm certainly no artist - it's sort of a paint-by-numbers hack job).
Paying homage to The King in Memphis.
Favorite 70s Singer/Group:
- Besides the usual suspects (Led Zeppelin, Elton John, Bowie, Eagles, etc.), I'm also very fond of Bread, America, Badfinger and Todd Rundgren -- just about anything with a strong melody.
Favorite 70s Song:
- What else? Stairway to Heaven
Favorite 70s Food:
- "Husky Junior" hamburgers from Hardee's (revealing to the world here for the first time their scrumptious "secret sauce": Thousand Island dressing!).
Favorite 70s-related Quote:
- "Who needs the world when you own the moon and stars." - from the 'Friends' movie poster from 1971 (Elton John composed the soundtrack for those who are unfamiliar with the flick, BTW).
Favorite 70s Toy:
- I was a little too old for toys then, but my favorite '70s relic is a Marantz 2230 stereo receiver that I first bought in 1975, stupidly traded in about five years later, and re-acquired through eBay a few years ago (now my pride & joy).
Favorite 70's TV Show:
- All In The Family
(see also All In The Family)
Favorite 70s Movie:
- It was first released in 1967 but since I didn't see it until 1972 I'm going to cheat a little bit: The Graduate.
Favorite 70's Memory:
- Going to a Bread concert on Nov. 27, 1972. Also Elton John on Nov. 9, 1974 (still have the original ticket stubs).
