Like JFK’s assassination everyone of a certain age remembered where they were during the announcement of the Japanese attack on the US Pacific Fleet in Pearl Harbor. Many had to ask, “Where’s Pearl Harbor?”
This morning to commemorate their ignorance I posed the same question to younger people on the streets of Manhattan. Few of them had a clue other than two Japanese punks who said it was a group from the 1970s.
“As we get old, we forget. As we get older, we are forgotten.”

ps Pearl Harbor and The Explosions released “Drivin’” in November of 1979. I saw them perform their debut single somewhere. I think it was at CBGBs.
