im writing a paper on woodstock right now. i listen to most of these bands and really want to know what it was like to be there out of curiosity and because I have to write a first person account. so if anyone has anything to help me at all it would be awesome.

My best recollection of Woodstock was Sly & The Family Stone jamming early one morning and just ripping the stage with and electrifying performance. They were definitely the Forerunners of Funk music. Santana,The Who,Hendrix were all good, but Sly and company were special. Too bad his career went the way it did.I can remember the crowd still screamin "HIGHER", and Sly had us all groovin to the Funk!

i really like the hippie scene and wish i could have been at woodstock. i own lots of hendrix material and think he is amazing, the best that walked gods green earth.i also like many other oldies bands such as led zeppelin, the beatles, pink floyd, Janis joplin, ten years after and the tolling stones...etc...i like new music as well, but i feel that old music paved ways, we must not 4 get..

too bad i was born in 88.

I'm only 26, so I clearly was not in attendance at, what I understand to be, the greatest rock event in history. I did, however, recently learn that my mom, at the age of 14, ran away with her best friend from rural Newfoundland to attend.

Hey hippie sunflower:
my mother has a record from woodstock...only bad thing is that its only about half these artists and about 2 songs each (hendrix is only national anthem and purple haze)

I got stuck on the Tappan Zee Bridge, when they closed the New York State Truway. My Dad, a Doctor, was the man who declared the Woodstock 69, a disaster area, so the mititary could get coptors in to continue the music.

All i have to say is "GIVE ME AN F!"

Ok, well i have more to say than that, but that sure brings me back to the few days i got to hang with some of the grooviest people in the country. Woodstock '69!

Hello, my name is Johnny Miller, i was known as Groovy Tuesday... I was with my gal Jill (we married in the back of our, dig it man, voltswagen bus, on the way back to, where we lived then, in tennesseee, from of course, woodstock, and check it out, Jill is still with me! 35 years man! 35 groovy years thanks to woodstock! I met her at the pond, she was naked, and had the most beautiful golden hair and angel ever would have! we hit it off, went back to my tent, tripped together, and dug the sounds of joan baez. We made love during joan's wonderful version of swing low sweet chariot! i cant believe i remember this like it was yesturday man!

So, jill, and i, and a few others, had an awesome experience...

I remember when this old man from the town told me that "yall long haired freaks aint welcome" i said... "well sir, if you read the bible, long hair represents strength and my man you should feel honored to have a little peice of heaven in your back yard, we are a family of millions, united by the music which is our blood" he just winked, and i knew he got it man!

so who remembers the pitiful food that was being served up? i know they tired thier best and i give them that, but i think i would of prefered to eaten the brown acid! hahahaha!

and one person who gets not as much recognition for her performance that she should get, was Melanie... i thought she was cute and she had a pretty voice, she did well! what a groovy goddess she was! but not as well as the quuen joan!

i admit, when it was over, and we all shared that same feeling, of unity, but we never wanted it to end... and jimi hendrix couldnt of done it any better playing that national anthem, and i cried, i cried tears, knowing our era was soon to be over, and the war that was being faught for no reason was to end in the future, and that our children will never have the chance to experience such feelings of peace and love and compassion and existence...

may all the children on the music of 69' live on! and those who have perished since rest in peace!

love always,
groovy tuesday + jill

Phil: I recall reading this somewhere in high school back in the 80s. I did a check on www.thewho.net (click on FAQs) to confirm. (It's on the 'Net so it gotta be true, eh). BTW Daltrey is on TV now pitching Time-Life's latest music collection. Sad...but I digress.

Hello everyone! Not only am I a huge fan of the music and culture of the Woodstock era (my mom always tells me I was born 20 years too late!), but I am also a playwright. I am starting my research for a play that takes place at Woodstock and am looking for people with stories to tell. Although I love the "hippie" stories, I would also like to get some different points of view, i.e. people who worked at the show, cops or servicemen that were called in, doctors, etc. If anyone has anything they would like to share, please email me at:
flowerchild1971@hotmail.com

- Pete Townshend guitar was retrieved from the crowd by his roadies. Some in the audience did get a beating for putting up a fight.

- How many "orignal" Michael Lang/Who contracts are out there?

- Led Zeppelin was on a very busy tour at the time. They played nearby Toronto on the 18th and would have blown everyone away.

Well Mr. Michael O'Keefe - it was 4 DAYS OF LOVE as you put it and I'm in the movie I'm told, but never could sit for 4 hours to see if I was. It was a blast and a huge accident. It was supposed to be a quiet little thing with some of the real biggies like Joan Baez.

When Janis sang OOOOOOOHHHHH BAAAAAAAAABBYYYYY, we were nose to nose, that much I remember.

Anybody know what happened to Pete Townshend's guitar??? He threw it into the crowd at the end of their amazing performance. Who caught it? Is it still in one piece? Did anybody need hospital after the fight to grab it? Where is it now?? Would love to know the answers to these Q's. Thanks in advance for any answers.

No they weren't, Tony, they were in England at the time. They were touring the UK I believe. I would have loved to see Led Zeppelin there though, one of my favorite bands.

Nathan H., that would have been very cool. I don't know if Black Sabath would have enjoyed the celebration it didn't seem like their seen.

I'd like to here what every ones favorite acts were.

This is a wonderful list.

I was at Woodstock with two of my friends when I was fifteen. I had begged my parents to let me go away for three days without any supervision or parental guidance that I knew would haunt me for the rest of my days if I let them come. The harder parter was getting there.Traffic going to the Woodstock grounds was so outrageous that we simply read books and played cards while we were waiting.My favorite band that had played in Woodstock was Creedence Clearwater Revival. They were so wonderful up there on stage that I forgot the rest of the other musicians. Everyone that I sat near was up and dancing when bassist Stu Cook was wailing 'Born on a Bayou' and 'Suzie Q'. At nights, we didn't get a wink of sleep so when the bands were setting up in the morning, we would drink to get our minds off of sleeping and it worked.

I think Woodstack deffinately would have rocked alot harder had Jeff Beck and Iron Butterfly been there. Butterfly would brought a kidnof metal sound to Woodstock, which would have celebrated more styles of music at the festival.

The band that I enjoyed most was without question The Who. Roger Daltrey was just so impressive and powerful on stage, and they deffinately put on the best show. The one band I didn't like at all was Sha-Na-Na, I hated them, they were deffinately the worst act. So me and my girlfriend just slept in my car for awhile until Jimi Hendrix came on. He was great, he's deffinately not as impressive live as acts such as The Who, Credence Clearwater Revival and The Grateful Dead, but he was great, his improvisation blew me away, one of the best instromentals I've heard and to thin khe was making it up as he went along.

The best day I remember was day two. The Who performed, aswell as The Dead, CCR, Sly and the Family Stone (one of the bands that introduced me to funk), Santana, Janis Joplin and Canned Heat.

One of the most underrated acts there was Joan Baez, I remember her voice blew my mind. Especially "Swing Low Sweet Chariot", they way she sang accapella was so beautiful and peacefl it was astounding.

I was 17 at Woodstock and what a blast!

The one thing I remember from Woodstock, besides the good music, was the heavy rains and the mud. Jesus, it was pretty tough! However, in spite of the excess population in the festival, there was no water shortage and I don't remember any fights. Also remember Jimi was kinda doped and his music was a little below his standards. Hey, I don't remember Tiny Tim - I guess I was sleeping when he performed!

Being born in 1972 I came along too late for Woodstock, not to mention that I was born and live in a different country to where the festival took place, but Ive always felt a connection to the music from that time. Id only ever heard bits and peices of the live album of Woodstock, and had seen very little footage from the time. I had no idea that a documentary movie filmed at the time existed, let alone that it won the best documentary Academy Award in 1970. That is, I didnt know...Until recently!!!
I was walking through a music shop when I spotted the DVD Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace and Music Directors Cut. I read the back and was shocked to find that the original movie had been available for many many years. I bought the DVD and took it home. That night I opened a beer, sat back, and watched the entire 216 minutes which is the Woodstock Directors Cut. I didnt quite feel like I was there, even though I watched the dvd on a very large screen, mainly because the DVD was in wide screen and the screen often had multi images at one time, which I found distracting at times because when there were two different images on the screen, I wanted to focus on both, so I often went back to the scene again to watch the section Id missed. But, apart from that, I absolutely loved the movie. The performances were awsome, the people were cool, and the scenes were brilliant (especially the mud slides during the down pour. The only other thing I didnt like about the DVD was that it wasnt in chronological order and cut out a hell of a lot of great performances.
Then, today I bought the DVD Woodstock The Music for very cheap. This DVD contains a lot of performances that were edited out of the original movie and left out of the directors cut. In all there are 25 performances not in the directors cut and includes interviews as well. There is 3 hours (180 minutes) on this DVD. Ive not watched the dvd yet, and I hope that it is full of footage NOT seen in the directors cut of the Woodstock DVD.
I am wondering if there is anywhere where I can get complete Woodstock operformances of the artists who played there (either in one package or seperately in PAL or failing that NTSC format)on DVD or VHS? Id also like to know if I can get the complete Woodstock footage (not of the performances, but of the crowd etc) in chronological order on DVD or VHS? If not, can this stuff be bought not in chronological on DVD or VHS?
Also, is it possible to buy the complete festival (performances and other footage) in chronological order on vhs or DVD?

I was never at Woodstock because i was born in 1989 but its alwayes been my dream to have gone. In school one of our teachers asked us which time period we would want to go to and why and everyone said different times in the olden day to meet old guys you learn about in history. When it was my turn i said 1969. My teacher asked me why and i said to go to woodstock. He was so interested in my answer. He said that was the most creative time period anyone ever said in his history of teaching. I also want to say this web page is great i never knew there where 31 acts!
Go Woodstock!

I was only seven in 1969 but I do remember the news reports on the choas of Woodstock. My older brother was right into music at the time and introduced me at that young age. I've been a fan ever since and credit music for shaping my life. I have travelled extensively always trying to trace the routes & roots of music. These are trips I recommend to everyone. I've been to Elvis's Graceland three times, Memphis's Sun Studios, Clarksdale, Mississippi - the birthplace of the blues, Highway 61, Route 66 (the whole length!), Nashville's Opry, Greenwich Village, New Orleans, Chicago, Asbury Park, NJ, the Sunset Strip in L.A., Haight & Ashbury in San Fran, Athens, Georgia and twice I have visited the Woodstock Festival site. Both times it was deserted. I sat quietly for as long as I could and tried to envision what it was all about. Soak it in. The farm really looks smaller than all the photos and the movie. It seems impossible that the crowd ever fit in that area.
I was lucky enough to attend a long forgotten festival called Canada Jam in 1978 where over two hundred thousand attended at Ontario's Mosport Park. Does anybody remember that one? Strange that no one ever mentions that event. I also attended last year's Rolling Stones/AC-DC show in Toronto that ended up being the largest paying audience ever. That was way too big! And way too passive!! Nothing happened except on stage. It just wasn't the event that I wanted it to be. Same with the Lollapaloozas I went to a few years back. I wonder if we could ever return to the days of Woodstock and the 1960s? We could sure use those times when people only needed peace, love and music. How times have changed. Dylan continues to be right!
Let music live forever!

I remember standing in front of the tv set with my dad during the world news when they were doing a piece on what was happening at the concert. My dad (being the older generation he was) was making fun of the kids. I was silently watching and wishing I was there. I visted Woodstock a few years ago just before he passed away. I tried to call him from there but he wasn't home at the time. I wish I could have spoken with him, he would have got a kick out of it. I always link him with Woodstock.

Hi all -
I'm a 53-year-old working mom with two kids who are now a little older than I was when I went to Woodstock in 1969.
This week's 35th anniversary of the first moon walk got me thinking about the upcoming 35th anniversary of Woodstock (the one that "named" a generation), so I rented the video again last night and my 19-year-old son and I watched it together. Wow, the video sure left out a lot of good music, which is why I'm on this site, to be reminded of who we saw there. I had to call 5 video stores before I found the tape. The kid at the store said it gets rented "about once a decade." So why do I have to return it by 9:00 tonight?? The festival? I've still got my three-day ticket -- $6/day, and of course it was never collected. I bought them through a radio station in Hartford (WHCN-FM) 35 years ago, and drove to Bethel with three of my high school friends from Forestville, CT. We were all about to become sophomores in college - I went to UConn. I was also the only one who told their parents where we were really going (25 years later, my mother was still saying, "Why did we let you go??"). Two guys and my best friend and me, with two Boy Scout tents, canteens of water, a loaf of bread and a jar of peanut butter. We parked like a million miles away from the site and walked in. Listened to Richie Havens as we approached on Friday afternoon. We were terrified, to put it mildly, but after the shock of the magnitude of the crowd wore off that first day, we settled into our tents up on the hill, and watched, and listened, and watched some more. We actually had a great spot, overlooking the giant mosh pit. The sound was fantastic from where we were, and we wondered why more people didn't sit where we were. Weren't into drugs, didn't even have beer - we hoarded our stuff and declined everyone else's offers of food, etc. My strongest memories of the three days are: pinching each other to make sure it all wasn't a dream -- dozing off through the night and waking to hear great performer after great performer - actually being in the same space with Janis, The Who, Jerry Garcia, Grace, Arlo (lived just down the road, practically), Joan, and on and on. Spent one whole afternoon waiting in a line to use the phones that were erected on poles across a field. Called my mom to tell her we were OK, and asked her to call the other parents, who were PISSED. Somehow our food held out. Around Sunday night we started getting worried about how we would get out so we could get back in time for our summer jobs on Tuesday. My brother had to go to a wedding on Sat., but had said he would drive out for Sunday and look for me. Ha! Needless to say, with the highways closed, he never made it. He still has a ticket, though.
So much talent, so many died too soon. It's been fun to run into other people over the years who were there. I work for a nonprofit health organization, and I currently have 3 co-workers who are also Woodstock alums. Also, the investigative reporter on WBZ-TV was there when he was 18. It's a cool club to belong to. Happy anniversary to everyone who shared the experience.

WOW!!! I can't believe how much I wish I was there! Jeesh you look at this and just can't believe who was there! I wish we could pull this off today with today's best but it won't happen, as Woodstock 94 and 99 both proved. Eh there's always Lolopalooza... that's not to shabby.

jimi sounded out of tune,and as if he were physically,and mentally ill from bad drugs. that being said,when on jimi's sort of drugs,the gig sounds brilliant.the solo after purple haze is where it all began. i think j. lennon said it best,"anything fits if you're trippin on some kind of trip." next time jimi,lay off of the bad acid,and get a guitar tech to tune your guitars.

Jimi died at 27. At the concert he put on the best version of Voodoo Child (slight return) EVAH!!! The thing was almost 14 minutes long!!!. And the Woodstock Improvisation was mind-blowing.

I believe hendrix, joplin, cobain, morrison, brian jones and robert johnson all died when they were 27.

Woodstock would have been an insane experience. I hate that i wasn't born yet! I love that music, the styles, the way people lived...everything about that time and the lifestyles of the woodstock crowd makes me envious of those who went to the festival...

Sweaty and hot but the whole areana was filled with music bringing love and peace to everyone. The astmosphere was wonderful.

Just for the record; Jimi was 27. Just like Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain.

I was at woodstock. It was a chaotic mess. I remember paying 7 dollars for a water. It was some rough times.

i was melanie's lawyer for ten years and she still packs em in so many years after half million strangers lit candles and lighters one rainy morn at max yasgur's farm some 35 yrs ago.

people still love when she does 'lay down' 'brand new key' and 'look what they gone and done to my song, ma..' fer sure

long live classic rock and the master musicians that made it happen for us all

In Response to this "Hi, I am still learning a little about music history, well a lot actually. I just wanted to know when Hendrix died, and when the song All along the Watchtower was released. Because if it was made before woodstock, i thought that it would have been on his set list. Thank you.

Scott: I know Jimi's Last Concert was September 6th/ 1970 and it was only a few days after that when he died, he died at 27 years old.

And All Along The Watchtower is acually a song by bob dylan that hendrix re-mixed, Hendrix released his version on January 21st/1968

Hope this helps ya

Woodstock in 1969 would have been so fuckin' awsome. I'm only 16 but I have heard so much about it from my parents and I would have loved to go. I'll say Hi to MaryJane for you guys.

I am so into the old music. I find it so much more usful and full of mystery and life. my whole life evolves around such songs as bob dylans- subterrianian homesick blues. I also injoy jefferson air plane and the who Must of took the world by storm with the way they rocked. I believe sam roberts is starting th new generation of soul music. I solute him for this, I would like to know about any bands doing the same. I HATE RAP.

dude woodstock ruled man! the music was so groovy. the only thing i didn't like about it was the fact that like everybody just sat around & like just wasted away i mean i'm all for peace & have done weed, but they like just danced around & they were like all drop outs man...that ain't for me. not that crowd. but the music & the show was sweet so that makes up for it. PEACE!

Well Scott from Australia Jimi Hendrix died 11am on the morning of September 18th 1970, Cause of Death was Drug Overdose But, I refuse to believe that. Al Hendrix his father denied him dying of a Drug Overdose In his Book My son Jimi. All Along The WatchTower was recorded at Olympic Studios on January 21st 1968 it was finished recording in May 1968 at Record Plant as a part of Electric Ladyland.

Woodstock actually changed my life. My three college buddies and I arrived the day before, (we were heading to the baseball hall of fame and got slightly detoured.)A hippie told us Jimi would be playing at the festival so we stuck around. those who were there will tell you the most distinctive thing about the farm was the smell. a horrific smell but strangely tollerable, the atmosphere was very relaxed and somewhat hectic at the same time. By the time the rains came my friends and I did not even care, we all met women there and were predisposed when the deluge started. We saw Jimi who was incredible, canned heat enlightened me and we met some very wonderful people there, including my wife. We now live happily ever after as attorneys in conn. this is how Woodstock changed my life.

i thought woodstock was the best thing to happen to man. it was one of the few times in history when many many people were put in a small area and only 3 died. and those three were probably of drug overdose.
