…”There’s battle lines being drawn
Nobody’s right if everybody’s wrong
Young people speaking’ their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind”….
On Nov. 12, 1966, the ‘youngsters’ that had been hanging out on Los Angeles’ famed ‘Sunset Strip’ started to protest a recent new curfew that the LAPD were strictly enforcing. It got a little out of hand and the LAPD starting beating some of the kids.
The events that took place inspired Stephen Stills to write the Buffalo Springfield song “For What It’s Worth.”
It also led to the movie “Riot On Sunset Strip” that was released in 1967, featuring among others, The Standells.
You know we are going to ask, so….. Any of you there for the ‘riots’ 51 years ago today? If not, how many of you saw the movie “Riot On Sunset Strip”?
