60s Rock Music
My name is Don Jung. This is my story during a time of civil unrest, the Vietnam war, student activism, political assassinations and the Manson Murders. During this turbulent time of chaos from 1966 to 1971, I escaped into the West Coast music scene while at UCLA. Rock music -read about the 60s musical artists I met and the compelling stories behind the songs. The Doors, Janis Joplin, the Byrds, Jefferson Airplane, Iron Butterfly, Three Dog Night, and others were all part of me learning all the aspects of the music industry. You will be surprised how some of us survived!
I invite you to explore this site, check out the photos, play some of my music recordings, and see what inspired me to share my stories. If you have stories that you would like to share, feel free to comment on my blog page. Enjoy!
