A tribute show called "The Piano Men" uses music of Elton John and Billy Joel to bring the audience on a journey through the 1970s.
Last year marked the 30th anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War.
The year 2005 also saw the revelation, at long last, of the secret
identity of Watergate's legendary "Deep Throat."
And with the release of Steven Spielberg's film "Munich" in December, a
lot of attention has once again been paid to the 1972 assassinations of members
of the Israeli Olympic team.
On a lighter note, singer Elton John recently devoted
part of his national tour to the 30th anniversary of his album Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy, which in 1975 held the distinction of being the first LP to ever enter the Billboard charts at number one.
