I think, to some extent I am happy that I lived and took part in the "revolution" that took place late 70's early 80's bye bye to d.i.s.c.o and the arrival and wake up call of Punk.. then to watch this turn around and enter the synth age, maybe some of my best times were had from 1978 - 1985

I wish I could have lived during the 80's. Maybe with my today's knowledge of technology and computers, I could dominate the whole entire PC and tech industry if I could go back to the 80's.

I think I would like to have been an Ancient Greek - would love to have been around listening to Socrates, and seeing Athenian democracy in action - if only I'd been a man!

I've always been facinated by Mary Wollstonecraft, form the late 1700s (I think). Anyway she was the mother of Mary Shelley of Frankinstein fame, and had an amazing life, including witnessing the French revolution, travelling around Scandanavia and was just an amazingly strong woman until she died a few days after giving birth to her second daughter, Mary. I would love to be a fly on the wall through those times. I think it would make me appreciate how easy we have things these days.


Onwards and upwards...

I so agree with you. I grew up listening to my elder brothers playing evrything from glam rock to disco, beatles to tangerine dream and t rex. my aunts & uncles with collections from 50's & 60's, all played at family parties. Then me Punk to New wave.

i'd like to visit numerous periods through history but mostly the time when 'the new world' (n. america) was being explored

I was only ten in 1978 which is why I wish I'd been born sooner.....
