The shot that killed Bobby Kennedy, and 3 hours of The Who for $3.

STORY BY: Gordon Bird
YEAR: 1967
LOCATION: Switzerland, Europe

Gordon went to school in Switzerland in 1967-68, and he clearly remembers many of the big events of those years, including Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination. He also remembers the shot that killed Bobby Kennedy - it still sticks with him today. He also recalls being in San Francisco in 1969, when a barker was selling $3 tickets to a pillow concert, where you sit on a pillow in an auditorium to hear a band. Who was playing? Yes, The Who was playing. "3 hours of The Who for $3". Thanks for sharing, Gordon.
