  • A lot of magnificent music was published in the year 1967. Albums like Sgt. Peppers by the Beatles, Between the Buttons by the Rolling Stones, Something Else by the Kinks, John Wesley Harding by Dylan, Velvet Underground and Nico, Axis Bold as Love by Jimi Hendrix, The Who sell out and Cream’s Disreali Gears to name some, were all released then.

    That same year I got to know one of my very best friends, Kristján Róbert. We were 12 and 13 years old and he had just moved to Reykjavík in South Iceland from the North. We soon started to listen to music together and now almost 48 years later, we still listen together when we can and we still enjoy some of the great music from 1967. He still lives in Reykjavík, I have moved to North but we meet few times a year for a good talk, food, coffee and music. I am grateful to have witnessed the great rock revolution of these years. I saw the Kinks live in Reykjavík in 1965 when I was 10 years old and Led Zeppelin in 1970, and these concerts are surely two of the highlights of my youth.
