    in 69 I started sending away to all of these manufacturers of gear , and I got a promo pack back from kelsey outlining their new console for me to drool over as well as a complete package frpm Bob Moog himself for my Minimoog model D , I was just a kid at the time but my interest growing exponentially at the time there were so many , maestro,JBL (loved 4560 cabs) it was such a huge mystery to me at the time.

    BTW pic #3 is my current PA LOL

    Conflating Rocky with Barry Goldwater is pretty amusing.

    If I was young it would have been an adventure and a blast.

    Shame about the mess but I will see guys throw empty bottles from a car window to the verge most days today and anywhere within 5 miles of a drive through McDonalds has hedgerows full of boxes, wrapping and cups. Saw pics of a beach after a recent festival here - trash everywhere. That I don’t get. Leaving tents and stuff... just so wasteful.

    The nicest thing my then-19-year-old brother ever did for me was to try and convince my mother that she should let 14-year-old-me go with him to Woodstock. She, of course, said no. I'm sure that it would have been a life changer...

    Lol. A bit messy but they got respect arround the globe for the best music ever produced & stopping a war. Not much since appart from net trolling & collecting AK47's!

    Big sloppy muddy crowded broken-down no-monitor trashy unplanned no-food no-toilets mess.

    Doesn't mean it wasn't epic.

    I try not to judge people for working with the novel circumstances of their times, especially when the last couple of years have seen a couple of wildly hyped festivals fall apart entirely.

    I too, wanted to go. I was 16 that summer and the buddy I hung with most back then started talking about this big rock festival that was going to be put on up in New York. He kept bugging me about going, saying let's take off and go cause it's going to be big. I had a car, he didn't. As bad as I wanted to go, I told him that if we go, we can't come home and would have to stay, cause my parents would have killed me for taking off like that.

    My folks wouldn't let me go. It would have been a 3,000 mile drive and I'd just gotten my license. I'd have had to use their car.
