Classmate David Bradley was a remarkable keyboard player with a haircut and snarl that seemed to be modeled after Eric Burden. I remember many parties where David and a band of classmates would perform this specific work with all of the racy verses and lyrical allusions. I'm not sure why David didn't graduate with our class. Does anyone else know his whereabouts?
If the Beatles were "clean," the Animals and the Rolling Stones were "dirty." In the 1960s the music industry focused much of its attention and money on white boy bands playing music that was directly influenced and inspired by the roots music of African-American communities. By the time we graduated in 1971, African-American musicians began to be heard on the radio (still controlled by the same people from the '50s and '60s) and the Age of Aquarius promised a much more racially (and musically) open society. And we believed it.
