1970 - Aufbruch im Trümmerjahr

It was the zero hour after the turbulent 60s: The year 1970 gave the furious starting signal for the decade of rock. When the last calendar page of the Woodstock year 1969 was torn off, the dreams of the Love & Peace generation were already lying on the floor like broken toys. Because one thing was clear: a new society could not be built with all-encompassing love and mind-expanding drugs alone. Nevertheless, the impulses of youth rebellion continued to have an effect and gradually changed the culture of the Western world. Of course, all this was also reflected in the still young rock music, which, full of adventurousness, pushed in the most diverse directions. 1970 became the year of new beginnings and new faces.
