About Two Old Hippies
Old enough to have been around when the concept
of peace, love and rock n’ roll inspired a generation of
free spirits. Young enough to embrace a world community, where generosity, compassion and equality
are a way of life. We celebrate living every day.
We’re Tom and Molly. Although our paths didn’t
cross until later in life, our individual journeys were
influenced by the hippie movement of the ‘60s and
all that it stood for. Love was in the air. People cared
about each other and the earth that is our home. Rock
N’ Roll was our soundtrack. It brought us all together.
It’s with us, still, today.
My journey began in Spirit Lake, Iowa. When Beatlemania hit, music became my world. At the age of 14,
I began importing guitars form Japan, placed my family surname on the label and Bedell Guitar Company
was born. I sold those guitars to neighborhood kids
who were crazy for music and taught them how to
play. I produced single 45’s and booked gigs for local
bands. Soon a second store was opened. That was a
glorious time for living. We loved our music, it was
our life, and not just for those of us who played. It
was a time that defined us all. - Tom
While Tom was busy with guitars, I was soaking up
the hippie culture out West, first in California and
then in Oregon. As a teenager, I had a passion for
Rock N’ Roll and bought record albums as fast as I
could earn the cash. Along the way, I managed to
learn the lyrics and songs of most of the artists I
listened to. In addition to music, everything about the
colorful alternative lifestyle of the times - the unconventional clothes, encouragement of self-expression,
the deepening connection with Mother Earth - struck
a cord with me and brought out my creative side. It
inspired the life we lead today. - Molly
Beyond material things, Two Old Hippies is an outlet
for the values and beliefs that two “born” hippies
acquired long ago. Seek peace and harmony for all living things. Inspire community. “Be True” to ourselves.
And share in the spirit of Peace, Love & Rock N’ Roll.
