Title: Woodstock's 50th anniversary
Post by: BLeafe on August 17, 2019, 12:30:07 AM
So, are you all sick of hearing about Woodstock's 50th anniversary this weekend? I'm not. Why?

Because TODAY is also the 50th anniversary of me turning 22 at Woodstock at the exact moment the Who hit the stage (both happened at 5:00am on a Sunday morning).

In 2003, I went back to the original site and took the below picture. The stage area is the non-green ground shown on the left above the fence. The sloping field was home to 4 or 5 hundred thousand new friends. In the foreground is the Woodstock monument.

If you can stand one more story about the event, here's mine: https://iaintjustmusic.bobleafe.com/?p=2864
