While neither the first nor the last Hippie, Backstreet was in many ways the quintessential Hippie.  Today the Hippie experience has been glamorized and sanitized by the dreaming of the young and the gleaning of the old.

Backstreet’s experiences covered the whole range of experimentation and rebellion that the Hippies came to symbolize.  From the “Summer of Love” in People’s Park and Haight Ashbury, (he helped bury the Hippie in San Francisco) through Drop City, Colorado to the Armadillo in Austin, Texas Backstreet was there.

More than the Lost Generation of the post-World War I era or the Beat Generation of the 1950’s the Hippie Generation represents the ultimate in missed opportunities, lost dreams, and eventually counterproductive goals.
