FMD – Woodstock at 50

So the past week or so I've been listening to music from the Woodstock festival from 50 years ago. The performances that we all are familiar with were great of course, but the others I found were not so compelling and downright tedious at times (lots of drum solos). Some of the Santana stuff put me to sleep. Also I noticed that most of the performances would fall under the rhythm and blues category of rock. I'd argue that if the same event was held today it would be classified as blue festival. Interesting how music has changed over the past 5 decades.

Anyway that's all I got. Drop 'em if you got 'em.

  2. Peter Cetera's wind blown hair is dreamy. Also, he balls-to-the-wall rocks out with that bass guitar.

  3. Its been years since I watched the Woodstock film (on VHS, its been that long), I mainly remember falling asleep to some performances then having to rewind the tape back to the point I dozed off.
