I was pretty happy when I came across the The United States of America
entry at Wikipedia, because of its offering a "where are they now" of sorts for the band's members. It's a slit of an opening to peak through, taking notice of the tender subject of what happens to the living, and a concrete chronology on those people who in the 1960's were with the knowledge,
_Byrd went on to form Joe Byrd and the Field Hippies, who released an LP, The American Metaphysical Circus, in 1969. He presently (2004) runs a bed and breakfast in northern California near the Oregon border, and occasionally teaches musicology at a local college.
_Dorothy Moskowitz later worked with Country Joe McDonald's All-Star Band, married, has two daughters, and lives in a suburb of Oakland CA. She writes for and teaches music to children in her local school system.
_Gordon Marron became a Los Angeles studio musician and now lives in Hawaii.
_Craig Woodson teaches percussion in Los Angeles and has toured with the Kronos Quartet.
_Ed Bogas composed soundtracks for Peanuts and Garfield TV cartoon specials and for Ralph Bakshi's film Fritz the Cat.
_Rand Forbes' current whereabouts are unknown (anyone?).
I like that list, it is nice, "running a bed and breakfast, occasional musicology, giving birth, teaching, studio musicianship, Kronos Quartet, soundtracks for Garfield, and whereabouts unknown." yeah, I dig it....reality is only temporary
a process imitating things that went before
without a satisfying answer anymore
the present just repeats the future and the past...
Good to know.
