The 60s began, according to Eric Burdon as "a party". "The aim of all of us, Hendrix, The Who, The Stones", Burdon goes on, "was to ball every chick in sight". Unfortunately, the party went sour. After the death of Epstein, The Beatles quarreled and split up. Jagger was arrested. Drugs became fashionable. The swinging sixties tore itself apart in an orgy of self-congratulation and self-indulgence.
