HOMES IN THE HAIGHT

Weekend Herald - - Review -

Haight-Ash­bury be­came a mecca for young Amer­i­can hip­pies in the late

60s, drawn by coun­ter­cul­ture ideals, mu­sic and drugs. Among the thou­sands who came to ‘drop in and drop out’ were many of the era’s top mu­si­cians. To­day, ‘flower power’ walk­ing tours take in the for­mer homes of lead­ing scen­sters such as Ja­nis Jo­plin, Gra­ham Nash, Jef­fer­son Air­plane and The Grate­ful Dead.
