1968. George Foreman wins a Gold Medal at the Olympics in Mexico City. Charlton Heston and Roddy McDowall star in Planet of the Apes.

1969, the original Woodstock Festival, “3 Days of Peace & Music,” rocks out in the town of Bethel, New York.

Late 1968, early ’69, Electro-Harmonix creates its very first catalog and this is the cover. The guy with his hand on the switch: EHX Founder & President, Mike Matthews!
