Do you remember Woodstock?

This is the place to kick a few tires, drink a few beers, and tell a few tales.

If you don't remember Woodstock, you were most probably there....

I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.

Actually it was in Bethel NY. Woodstock just sounds better. I was into drums and percussion instruments at the time and thought Michael Shrieve was awesome playing for Santana.

Vaguely. I was in high school and working full time as a busboy at an upscale restaurant. All I really cared about then was having a car and the freedom it represented. I may only have known about it through the evening news with Walter Cronkite.

I was only 12 so a bit young. Some older guys (18 - ish) who lived two houses down from me drove there in a silver '59 Oldsmobile 4 door hardtop. Their car was towed while they were at the concert. They took the bus home instead of paying the towing bill.

Yes! I was between high school and college, taking a night college class to get a head start, working as an extra at a retail shoe store (remember those?), and enjoying my first Mercury. I specifically got extra hours because a full-timer, the late Fran Grotkier, had taken vacation time to go to Woodstock! We were around the horn from Bethel outside Utica NY, and it took Fran an extra day to get back.

I just couldn't find anyone I knew that was going and didn't have a car. I did visit the spot in 75 and talking to a neighbor of the 'farm' he said the next several years Yasguar had quite a cash crop growing among the hay. Those must have been some happy cows. :D

I was 4 in 1969. Not I. Do I know about it historically? Yes.
