    Really takes me back, I just wish I had a few cold Zima's about now.
    How 'bout some wine coolers? What other stuff was around then?

      Well, I seem to remember a President who harbored some pretty disturbing ideas about what constituted a proper cigar humidor, but I suppose compared to what you have now, in retrospect, those were dignified, upstanding times indeed...

          Cobain killed himself, baseball strike canceled the series, pulp fiction came out in theaters, OJ drove his bronco for hours. and sipping on gin and juice became the latest craze for those wacky kids.

            The Who will tour the US in 2019, but have ruled out Woodstock.

            "And even though the routing is still being worked out, both Daltrey and Townshend say they will not be making a return appearance to Woodstock for the 50th anniversary event at Watkins Glen in August. “What would be the point?” Says Daltrey. “I can’t work outside in the heat anymore like that in August. It’ll kill me. I got really big problems with heat now due to my meningitis. "

            So I guess Jazzfest is also off the table.

                After that Fest show, where he sounded great, Roger had a hard time with his voice for the rest of the tour. I think they had to bring in Vedder.

                  Jazz Fest killed Simon and Garfunkel's illustrious career.

                    I Googled '1995 fads' and found, among others already mentioned, the immortal Macarena....

                    And yes, I did the wrong year. It was kinda late (early).

                      I admit to pulling most of my prior post from searching up 1994 pop culture on google.

                      And yes, MG, the sound of Garfunkel's once truly beautiful voice cracking horribly out there at Acura was too much to take, and the permanent end of that duo. I walked in there thinking of the concert in central park, and how amazing he sounded then, and was just devastated to hear him.

                          He was very fond of Jerry Garcia. He even invited the Dead to share a billing with them back in the 1980's at a show in Germany.

                            Yep. Jerry was worried about 'scoring' overseas. Pete hooked him up.

                                One of the reasons I love The Who. Pete also knocked obnoxious Abbie Hoffman off the stage at Woodstock. Good man that Pete.
