There was a time, and apparently it was a mere 40 years ago, when rock musicians were brave enough (and by ‘brave’, I mean they got high enough) to actually ram their audiences in the eye with electric prods when it was time to do just that.

And the best of each side, performer and the performed-upon, accepted the wave of revolution, let it fill their lungs, and lived to tell the tale.

Album being played at present – Bob Dylan, Bootleg Series, Volume 7 

Naturally.
