David Bowie, la légende du rock, est mort à l'âge de 69 ans
The hippie movement was not as much about having long hair, as it was about the attitude, and not trusting the government. It was during the Vietnam war, when mostly poor American men were being drafted and sent to fight a war, based on a lie. At the time, many of them were coming home in boxes. Being a hippy meant questioning authority, and its power. It was about peace, and not wanting to hurt others. The long hair was out of rebellion.
