1. It's excellent

Great perspective from the attendees. It was such a positive event.

2. I watched it on my local PBS station last night. I was very impressed!

I was 19 when Woodstock happened. To my everlasting regret, I didn't make it there. I had a ride lined up and was set to go, but life intervened in such a way that I had to cancel the trip.

Anyway, I totally agree with you that this is the best Woodstock documentary ever! So much more truly interesting information that I had never heard of before!

Many parts had me in tears - and made me deeply regret, once again, that I wasn't there.

4. Awww, I love your story

I was 10 at the time, oblivious to what was happening hundreds of miles away. I do remember the moon landing, the daily news reports about Vietnam & my fav psychedelic shirt.

6. I was 15

Old enough to know it was happening without me, too young for there to have been any way my parents would let me go. I seriously thought about just running away and hitchhiking my way from Indiana to New York, but I didn't do it. I still wish I had sometimes.

7. About a year ago I bumped into

Country Joe (Country Joe and the fish, fame) who sang at woodstock. He was pretty cool at the time...

8. Country Joe made it in the original Woodstock film, always enjoy his performance.

That would be interesting to meet up with him now. The only famous person I have met was Cary Grant, I drove him to a shareholders meeting at a company I once worked for but that was many moons ago.
