Why the 60s? That’s a question that shouldn’t even need to be asked. I mean, IT’S THE 60S!

The 60s doesn’t need much introduction. It was a decade of profound social change around the globe, and it also gave birth to the genre that we now know as rock music. It’s interesting to ponder whether it was the social and political climate in the western world at the time that inspired and encouraged artists to come up with groundbreaking new concepts, or the other way round. It probably worked both ways; after all, the arts and society have always interacted with each other in various interesting ways since early human history.

60s Today is dedicated to exploring the legacy of a very special decade, and finding the artists who create innovative music nowadays. We cover the latest news about 60s icons who are still active, and readers can also enjoy a lot of exclusive content, such as features, album and concert reviews, analysis pieces and interviews.
