This image is the greatest I've seen in many moons.
Had I been there during the time? A Rocker, even though I have never piloted a motorcycle.
"The mod subculture was centered on fashion and music, and many mods rode scooters. Mods wore suits and other cleancut outfits, and listened to 1960s music genres such as soul, rhythm and blues, ska, beat music, and British blues-rooted bands like The Yardbirds, the Small Faces, and The Who, who wrote an evocative portrait of the cultures with their 1973 album Quadrophenia."
The fashion and clean cut is still a no go for me. Suits?
I do very much dig The Who.
I'm a '59er too, a late '59er. Christmas day in fact.
On the guitar, I’m a schlocker.
only for awhile until i landed my dream job in the adult film industry.
U.s.a. Was a whole different scene. 60s . Band years you mentioned. One anecdote: We all went to my best friends brothers funeral , shot down over Vietnam … sweet kid . Good drummer , defiantly not a soldier. So you were either sad or pissed off and ready to build bombs.
The happy days dudes were called greasers. Bikers are a whole different animal all together son. I mean a whole different different. We used to play some bikers clubs.. yeow. Speed speed speed. You remember white crosses. Ginger bakers best friend.yep that’s the cats
I'm just a frustrated boy.
You were a fluffer?
Yeh i remember the
Mods and Rocker stuff
I always thought of the Rockers
Bonny and Claud
I was born in 1959 and so missed most of the good stuff. I don't think I ever even heard the term "mod" until The Jam appeared, but that band changed my life. And I thought scooters were the coolest, even as a little kid.
So mod music for sure, but I don't know about the fashion. Mods seem to have a very narrow concept of looking cool. They generally look good but there's not much range to it.
I was a Mod.
Mohair suits, Lambretta LI 150 etc.
A smart and fashionable scene including The Who and Small faces.
Neither...I was more of a wanna-be hippie.

I don't do lables. When you dig deeper there's usually more to people than what you can fit under a single lable.
Were still at it down here in Wiltshire, here's the Annual Vale of the White Horse scooter rally held in my local pub, we get around 4-500 bikes come through, live band and most camp out in the pubs field out the back.
I really don't know. I was playing kazoo in a jug band at the time and all I saw were hippies.
I yave one exception to the no lables rule.
