    It has been that long since the most famous concert festival of all time was held. I would have loved to travel back in time to witness and experience this wonderful event of 3 days filled with peace, love & music.:)

    I had a ride from Philly and a chance to go but passed it up.
    Mrs TD ( the NYC hippie chick ) went.

    Anyone watched the PBS American Experience episode that just came out on Woodstock. I thoroughly enjoyed watching it many times already.

    something tells me it would have been fun for a bit, but once you got wet and couldn't stay dry, it'd be miserable being surrounded by a mob high out of their mind.

    Was hitchhiking from Milwaukee to Woodstock when in Zanesville, Ohio, got popped by police as a runaway. Parental units put the bolo out on me.
    BUMMER. Had to down the micro dot hidden in my wriststrap before the cops found it.
    Interesting times.:thumbd::cool:

    Even then. I've been to more than a few festivals, and even in the best of weather doing drugs fro 2-3 days straight is exhausting. I guess I'm just getting old.

    Apparently Santana admitted to dropping a few hits of acid before the show. He said the neck on his guitar felt like a large snake moving around and he was freaking out. He vowed never to do acid again.
