No need to feel sorry bro. It's your post - say whatever you want and whatever you feel!
As a child of the 60s I look back on that period with some nostalgia too. But I do that simply because I was taking no responsibility for my life and didn't care what happened to me. It was an almost totally care-free existence for awhile, and sure, I guess we all yearn for a bit of that again.
That said, what kind of life was it for the people you name? Janis was a junkie, drunk on Southern Comfort most of the time, and an extremely unhappy woman with zero self-esteem and hardly any real friends. Morrison? - a violent alcoholic. Hendrix? - probably the best guitarist ever but a lost soul easily exploited by others and eventually a burnout on acid and speed.
I think what we reacted to as teenagers and young men was the public image used to sell records and promote concerts. These people were all made to look blissfully happy and living the good life, but my guess is that most of them weren't.
But enough of that - the illusion is one I still like to linger over sometimes ... before I get back to real life!
I don't think people like our parents worked less hard than we do now, do you? But perhaps it's easier now to become disillusioned with our jobs and lives. If that's how you feel, can you do anything to change that? A different job, for example? Or less radical, try to make more time for yourself in your life. We DO have the right to live at least part of our lives for ourselves, as opposed to struggling 24/7 for everyone else.
