Good story Doc. Now I know how Skynard felt. I know that parent and grandparent generation had no tolerance for long hair. We couldn't do anything. Just 1 ear ring, in the left ear would socially destroy you with parents, friend's parents, teachers, etc. I wasn't allowed a jean jacket or a black leather, long hair, tattoo, etc. Back then nothing was socially allowed. Oddly, it was much better then, though that's another story. Chicks, ....I know for sure in the '80s they dug it, and you could get them simply because of it. At least hotter babes for sure. I think it's a primal Fabio sort of thing in the right context.
