According to Alice Cooper, "The late sixties and early seventies were kind of a breeding ground for exciting new sounds because easy listening and folk were kind of taking over the airwaves. I think it was a natural next step to take that blissful, easy-going sound and strangle the life out of it." What an interesting perspective to have on this wonderful era.

Kate Moss, a famous model of modern time, spoke of this time by saying, "I love the Sixties with Julie Christie and Jane Birkin - those natural English beauties. That's the look that is most me when I wore the tight-to-the knee dresses. I don't think I bleached my hair until I was 20. I like experimenting for big occasions, though. You've always got to do a bit of a number for the birthday!" When people speak so highly of an era, you know it was a good one!
