Well, for most music lovers it would have to be Woodstock back in August of 1969. The 42nd anniversary of the event billed as 3 days of peace & music was just a few days ago. I wasn’t born when the event was held and even if I was New York state is not easy for me to get to but it would have been nice to witness this event in person.
Who would I have been psyched to see perform? Richie Havens, Santana, the Grateful Dead, CCR, Janis Joplin, The Who, Johnny & Edgar Winter, Jimi Hendrix & Crosby, Still, Nash & Young. The last band would have been my major attraction along with Santana & Hendrix. I was never that big on Hendrix but he defined Woodstock and is great performer while Santana is just great anywhere.
The rain & mud isn’t my scene so if I could find someplace safe to watch it, that would be great.
