(…) The Rolling Stones were not ready for the pro movement, and their decision to jump the bandwagon was a serious miscalculation from the very beginning. Brian Jones probably was the only Stone to be able to relate to the new age and even then it may have been for drugs and fashion rather than politics. “Flowers” (Summer 1967) was a shameless cash-in and as far removed from the peace movement’s principles as the UK prime minister’s. “We Love You” (August 1967) was a nice song, but so what? Their only real effort was the “psychedelic” album Their Satanic Majesties Request (Winter 1967). The fans didn’t understand, but bought the album anyway. Considering comments and sales, hardly anyone else did. The Stones failed to convince they had contributed to the new movement and deep inside they knew they were not a part of it and would never be. The new movement was so rich and varied it included Martin Luther King, Ghandi, Buddhism, analyses of capitalism, radically new ideas about sex and male-female model roles and anti-authoritarian education to name but a few, but the Stones shrunk it to something “psychedelic”. Psychedelic was just one possible adjective to label the new era, but it was the only one Jagger, Jones & Co could possibly identify with because it could refer to drugs and drugs could be seen as part of the Anti Attitude. The Stones had a strong image and one that reflected their personalities, so no-one actually believed they had entered the Age of Aquarius”. © Eddy Bonte, full article here:

Cuby + Blizzards (1966–1974)

Cuby + Blizzards (C+B) was founded by Eelco Gelling and  Harry Muskee in 1964. Their first single was released in 1965 followed by a string of albums starting in 1966. During his time with Cuby + Blizzards the band became famous in Holland, Germany and the UK. They played, recorded and toured with Eddie Boyd, Van Marrison and Alexis Korner.In 966 they toured with  John Mayall and when Mayall came over to the Netherlands to stay for a couple of days, he asked Gelling to join theBluesbreakers. Gelling did not agree and stayed with Cuby + Blizzards. The 1969 album Appleknocker’s Flophouse is considered one of the greatest Dutch Blues albums. The guitarwork rivals that many great players The band recorded their last album in 1974, named Het Afscheidsconcert (The Farewell Concert). (…)
