Sommer of '69

Apologies in advance if this is the wrong forum.


I worked in Zurich from, May 1969 to August 1970. I worked hard and played hard. Sadly, the playing part was, to say the least, excessive, misguided and reckless. Oh Well!


During that time I met lots of people from all over the World. Names and faces I can still recall. One star shone the brightest. I have never forgotten.


Many of you may be familiar with the Bryan Adams song, "Summer of '69". It holds bitter sweet memories for me. Those lyrics ring true.


If you are reading this and remember the sessions at the, Carlton Elite Bar or, the rancorous singing at the English Pubs in the old part of the City, I would love to hear from you. It would be nice, after all these years, to just say, "Supp Friend" (As the kids would say)


Thank You.

*sigh*...




another ".. can you help me find my long lost love(s) .." thread.

Welcome to the form. You're perfect here!

69 was before my time, though we are still singing in those English Pubs in the old part of the city.

69 will never die, just change its vintage

Re: Sommer of '69

Welcome to the EF, the favorite place of complainers, trolls, IKEA furniture peddlers, brown sugar addicts and all those who'd actually need a shrink but can't afford him.

I lived in Zurich 1967 - 1977, University, then University Hospital, still called Kantonsspital back then. As a student, then post-graduate, I did quite a bit of pub crawling in downtown Zurich too, but Carlton Elite was a notch or two above my level (read budget).

Nowaday, at retirement age but not retired, I hardly ever pay a visit to Zurich. It's too far from Michigan, my second home, and even much farther from Sarganserland, Canton St. Gallen, my base camp.
