Born To Be Wild – The Golden Age of American Rock | 1960s

Jefferson Airplane photographed by Herb Greene...BBC documentary Born To Be Wild tells the story of the rise and fall of the golden age of American rock from the late 1960s to the early 1990s

Part one, Riders On The Storm begins during the era of flower power, Vietnam and LSD. Inspired by The Beatles and Rolling Stones, who were at the forefront of the musical change at this time, bands started to form all over America. Unlike the rock ‘n’ roll pioneers of the 1950s, these new bands, such as The Doors and Jefferson Airplane, wrote their own songs which reflected the social and political world around them. They not only sang about the revolution, they were the revolution.
