ISTM that Pete's memoirs not only trace a path through his own life, but also through a sweeping change in 60s culture than the 40s and 50s knew it. Many of us grew up in those changing times. Many others did not. Statistics show that the majority of those in the West who did, were the majority. The babyboomers. That Heidegger came up in PT's final thread involving a description of the Turn on, Tune in, Drop out 1 Generation is of little surprise. As someone mentioned, his deconstructionist thoughts exercised a profound influence on the philosophy, theology, arts and humanities of today. What impact does this have on our own thinking? On Pete's memoirs? What might this mean for music? And where pray tell does the Octave fit in? Or does it??
Who would like to comment?
