So where were you ?
Definitely a history lesson for today in those words.....Unforgettable phrases from that day; Outside Agitators, Communists, the usual stuff used to smear the students as the 'other', those to be feared...
I sorta had the same feelings as you regarding Young writing the song and it being released in a matter of a few days. Two years ago there was a thread about this very event in history, I have a different perspective on what Young did because of what Weedie wrote in response to me saying the same thing as you, mind you I'm not making a comment on your thoughts, just that mine changed after reading what someone like Weedie (who had more invested then I) thought about it.I was 13 myself. Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young felt they needed to do something. According to Crosby, Neil walked into the woods, with his guitar, came back 15 minutes later having written the song Ohio. It was recorded and released within a week. Pretty amazing.
Me too... But the U.S. government had already locked me up [1967-68] for refusing to get involved in thier war. Killing and war does not align with my belief system. Christian teachings trumps politics. I would do the same thing again. ...J.D.I was working then, I'm a little older than most of the above ^^^^^ guys.....
