The times: June 1969 / November 1971
The places: Soest, Germany / Toronto, Canada
My first exposure to the song ‘One’, was a performance on German TV by the band Three Dog Night. We were packing up to move back to Canada (see ‘B’ post), after living here since 1965. I was drawn to the sad lyrics and plaintive arrangement, having experienced many ‘parties of one’ in my life. It comes with the territory when you’re an only child. I bought the album as well and became a huge fan.
One of my earliest dates with hubby and first actual rock concert was a November 1971 Three Dog Night show in Toronto. The feeling of musical euphoria lasted for days and I was completely hooked. As the saying goes: ‘Who needs drugs when there’s music?” Works for me! So does ‘Rock ‘Til You Drop’.
We didn’t get the chance to go to that many concerts in the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s, so now we’re making up for lost time. Click HERE to view this old Hippie/Rockchick’s concert list (not complete – most of the earlier ones are missing).
Do you like going to concerts? If not, what’s your favourite recreational activity?
Looking forward to your comments!
