I guess me and my new Argosy are Gen. X'ers. Born in 1970 and was a teen throughout the Big Hair years. Boy did I have some feathered out wings and then onto the Weird Science/Skater bangs. I still have some skinny leather ties and my GNR/Def Leopard/ Iron Maiden/Kiss/various other Big Hair band's cassette tapes. Now I also have three new millenium kids who run me ragged tring to keep up with em, lots of fun though then and now.

I agree that those of us born in 1960-1965 aren't usually Boomers. Not that there's anything wrong with that or that I feel more elite being a Gen Xer or whatever (cuz that doesn't make sense either).

But it's a fact that my b'friend & other acquaintances of mine who are even 5 years older (Jack just turned 50 & I just turned 45) are worlds apart in terms of cultural references when it comes to music, literature, politics, even what we were taught in school.

I can't figure out why, exactly, that is!

I don't think that has anything to do with your generation, especially when there is just five years difference between you. I think it just has to do with people having different tastes. This could be related to their upbringing, their experiences in life, their interactions with others, etc.

Case in point...I'm a baby boomer and my music tastes range from Big Band swing music (from my father), oldies (from my high school years), techno and some rap (from my nephews), dance music (from my in-laws), alternative music (from my internet surfing) and classical (from my piano playing days).

Good point. Maybe the generation/culture/ethnicity of the person who raises them to be more specific. Some of us are lucky to have had grandparents active in our formative years. Our great grandmother was the only person available for childcare when we were growing up so we were very lucky to have her stories and perspective until our teens. She earned her spot in heaven!!

Sounds about right!!! Edee is a 41'er and Phil is a 42'er. I think that makes us the "snapdragon" generation.... What hasn't snapped is draggin'!!!

I wasn't around in '67 but I still think Jefferson Airplane rocks

They're always played in the 'Nam movies.

Now I DO remember Starship from my era, which came from Jefferson Starship, which came from Jefferson Airplane. So it's all kind of interconnected.

The Doors were cool too. And I've seen the Stones three times.

But I also like Kiss, Motley Crue, and many of the 80's bands.

It's all good!
