60s Trivia


The answer to last week's trivia question, what is a 409?, is it's the size of Chevrolet's first muscle engine 409 cubic inches. It was kind of a dog, so Chevrolet replaced it with the 396 and the 427, bot of which, in my opinion, were far more powerful engines.

Since last week's trivia question was so well received, I thought it would be good to continue with another question. This one may be a bit more difficult, unless you were tuned into the drug culture of the 60s.

Who coined the phrase: "Sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll?"

Bonus points (just kidding) for anyone who can give me some details of this person's life, and what kind of drugs was this person most interested in?

So, I'm thinking that maybe, if I post enough about it here, someone will get interested, and just maybe even an agent or editor will stumble on this site and want to know more (you think?).

Anyway, over the next while (time-frame yet to be determined) I'm going to post trivia questions about the 1960s and see if anyone wants to respond with an answer to the questions. I'm sure I'll have a lot of takers, so come one come all. Join the fun.

Sorry, but no prizes at this juncture. Just fun reminiscing.

So, my first question is this:

What is a 409?
