Peter Fonda Takes Final Easy Ride

Ironic that "Easy Rider's" Peter Fonda passed away on the anniversary of Woodstock.

Both the film and the concert, each 50 years old, were iconic representations of the 60s, an era now long, long gone.

He was 79.

Peter Fonda, Star of ‘Easy Rider,’ Dies at 79

The FIRST great Rock movie soundtrack.  Still one of the best ever.  Peter, I believe, selected the tunes.

Easy Rider clearly launched Jack Nicholson's incredible acting career

There was an album called The Ballad of Easy Rider by the Byrds and Peter Fonda did the liner notes. This was one of the first albums I ever bought. The version of the song on the album is not on the movie soundtrack and there's a whole story about how Bob Dylan dis-owned the co-writing credit. Anyway I still have a reel to reel copy of the album and below are the pics with Fonda's liner notes:

The TAMI show is considered an early classic from what I remember but I believe the Beach Boys footage was missing but the Stones and Supremes are there.

Prefer the soundtrack to HELP over Hard Day but I think the latter movie is better.

Have Don't Look Back and quite enjoy it.

Prefer Monterrey Pop over Woodstock but some artists who performed are missing.  David Crosby performed with the Byrds and Buffalo Springfield perhaps setting the groundwork for CSN and CSNY. He was a member of the Byrds at the time but on his last legs with the group..

He already knew what it was like to be dead, having cornered George Harrison at a party in LA (when the Beatles played there in 1965) and told him .... overheard by John and worked into the lyrics of "She Said."

No doubt his father played a major role.

Re: Peter Fonda Takes Final Easy Ride

This from Wiki about She Said She Said:

She Said She Said" is a song by the English rock band The Beatles from their 1966 album Revolver. Credited to Lennon–McCartney, it was written by John Lennon[3][4] with assistance from George Harrison.[5] Lennon described it as "an 'acidy' song" with lyrics inspired by actor Peter Fonda's comments during an LSD trip in August 1965 with members of the Beatles and the Byrds.[6] "She Said She Said" was the last track recorded for Revolver. Due to an argument over the song's musical arrangement, Paul McCartney walked out of the studio and did not contribute to the recording.
