    Lots of good music in '68. :cool:

    Some pretty crummy social/political/historical events though. :( MLK assassination in April. Bobby Kennedy 2 months later. Riots all over the U.S. in protest of the Vietnam War. A number of other things that I'm not going to go into.

    But the music... yeah, some great stuff that year.

    (a short sample of some of the outstanding music from 1968):

    * Cream - White Room
    * Hendrix - All Along the Watchtower
    * Stones - Sympathy for the Devil
    * Beatles - Hey Jude
    * Zombies - Time of the Season
    * CCR - Suzie Q
    * Doors - Hello, I Love You
    * Guess Who - These Eyes
    * Hendrix - Voodoo Child (Slight Return)
    * Deep Purple - Hush

    ... and so many more
