He did, I think.

I think people were, in general, more low key and not as demonstrative or open about things then.

I remember the new age stuff that was all over then, and the 'rock and roll is a conspiracy!' types and such. There was about as much woo woo, it was just that were weren't as aware of it because we did a little better job of hiding it.

Or maybe as kids we just weren't as perceptive sometimes as those who'd spent a lifetime with that.
