Early Rock in the 1950s
We grew up with Rock and Roll, and it all started back in the Fifties. That was a little before our time, but the sounds of Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry and all the others rocked us just the same. Check out these free videos and re-live those rockin' days. See Best 1950s Rock and Roll.
Boomers are Everywhere
"I've gone to look for America," sang Simon and Garfunkel in 1972, and the Boomers who took that advice ended up in all fifty USA states from Maine to Hawaii. So I've gone to look for the Boomers who are still hanging in there, and here's how many I found in all those places. Boomer men and women in each state.

Our Music, People and Interests
In these pages you find the music you love, people you know, and issues that affect your life today. Born during the Baby Boom years, our life is not just about where we've been, it's about where we are now, the things we're dealing with, and maybe finding some ways to make what comes next a little better.
Other Boomers are all around us. Barack Obama is the third consecutive Boomer to be President of the United States. Condoleezza Rice was the first of two Boomers to be the U.S. Secretary of State. George Clooney and Brad Pitt made impacts in movies, while Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, and Cher did the same in music. Bill Gates and Steve Jobs jump-started the home computer revolution. Medical doctors Deepak Chopra and Dean Ornish made their marks in the health field. In a lower stratosphere, I have written a few books and plan to keep on presenting research papers at universities.
We may retire from working for others, but we can always
be active working at what we love to do -- whether it is a golf swing, a
book, a new career, or being a mentor to a troubled kid. As Boomers, we
are approaching the freedom that lets us take more control of our life,
have a bit of fun, and maybe make a real difference.
