Driving To The Darkness is a story of the 1960's about Splinters and Boomer in a decade of an asian war, anti war protests, assassinations in the country, civil rights, pot smoking and wonderful rock 'n roll music that the twins collected and listened to endlessly. It begins with the calm of the early sixties and a young president being elected to office. It shows the violence and near civil war that followed, as the psyche of the country became damaged from President Kennedy's killing to other killings and violence. The decade was also the emergence of incredible singers and songwriters, Bob Dylan and The Beatles. The intensity and fury of life in America became frightening on a national and a personal level.
