You guys worry about all the aliens you want. I'm afraid the government has killed my heroes!
The Monterey Pop Festival of 1967 was held at the zenith of what has been called the Summer of Love. It involved some of the biggest names in entertainment history almost exclusively made up of anti-war enthusiasts. Behind the scenes organizing the event were members of the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys. It was the first of its kind and involved over 200,000 people. So successful was it that there were no crimes of violence reported, no drug overdoses, no arrests. In fact the chief of police was quoted as saying that he had encountered more problems in PTA meetings. As support grew for the participants before, during and after the festival by the young, socially conscious people opposed to the status quo; government officials took notice.
Here were rock stars with millions of adoring fans speaking out against the war, against the political machine, against the authority of government. Rock and roll was mobilizing it's listeners all over the world to take charge by peaceful, benevolent means. There was a movement to make a change in society so that future generations would not learn war anymore. The Devil's music had a cause after all, much to the chagrin of the powers that be who tried to discredit it.
