Artist's Description

Summer of 69
By Darren Bailey LRPS

I got my first real six string
Bought it at the five and dime
Played it till my fingers bled
Was the summer of ’69
- Bryan Adams

According to Co-songwriter Jim Vallance:

When I was growing up in the 1950’s and 60’s there were shops called “Five and Dime” where you could (supposedly) buy anything for five or ten cents, which wasn’t always true.
Now they call them “Dollar Stores”!

Neither Bryan or I ever bought a guitar at the “Five and Dime”.
I got my first guitar from my parents, Christmas 1965, when I was thirteen. Bryan bought his first guitar at a pawn shop in 1972, age twelve.
