This day in HISTOROCK !!
Remember those lyrics Joni said it all: “I came upon a child of God, he was walking along the road / And I asked him where are you going, and this he told me: / “I’m going on down to Yasgur’s farm / Gonna join in a rock’n’roll band / I’m gonna camp out on the land / Gonna try and set my soul free”. After the concert, Max Yasgur, who owned the site of the event, saw it as a victory of peace and love. He spoke of how nearly half a million people spent three days with music and peace on their minds. He stated, ""If we join them, we can turn those adversities that are the problems of America today into a hope for a brighter and more peaceful future. What a fantastic time for music and for the human race !! This may have been the real "Summer of love" !! Here is some incredible timeless video of Jimi Hendrix performing The Star Spangled Banner/Purple Haze at Woodstock 1969 !!
Keep on ROCKIN !!
