46 years ago, a defining moment in the history of the world (please pardon my hyperbole) occurred:  The Woodstock Music and Art Festival.  Perhaps as many as 400,000 people attended the festival (unfortunately, I did not).  Many artists made breakthrough performances and became forever identified with the movements of the 1960s (Peace, Civil Rights, LGBT, and Women’s).  It all occurred on Max Yasgur’s Farm in Bethel, New York.

Woodstock

The Guitar God, Jimi Hendrix (who served as a paratrooper in the US Army before he became a star)

 

Jefferson Airplane with lead singer, Grace Slick (who named her first child, God) and who had the bluest eyes in the universe.

Country Joe and the Fish

Richie Havens

And, they were there although they did not perform the iconic song, “Woodstock”, which was written by Joni Mitchell who also performed at Woodstock, Crosby, Stills, and Nash.
