Neil Young acquired a 1953 Gibson Les Paul which he used when he was in Buffalo Springfield, he named it Old Black and he has been playing this same guitar for almost 50 years. Johnny Cash was called the man in black and Three Dog night had a big hit with Black and White. Everything is not a black and white situation and you can’t go around painting everything black, but Black Lives Matter is an important issue.
My dad was a TV repairman and I have always had a TV set in every home that I lived in. I remember when everything was in black and white and then when I was 5, we got our first color TV set. Most of the programs were still in black and white and only a half a dozen shows were in color at that time, but commercials came out in color. Think of how cool it looked when Dorothy landed in OZ and everything turned from black and white to color, that scene made the movie come alive.
