Nice jab!

As we all know, Joni Mitchell famously turned down an invitation to play at Woodstock (to appear on the Dick Cavett TV show), and wrote the iconic song "Woodstock" while watching television coverage of the festival from her New York City hotel room. I guess she regretted not going.

Did all those acts really play through the night? That seems crazy.
1969 - moon landing, Woodstock AND Merckx's first TdF victory AND Charles Manson Tate-LaBianca murders

The boys-Crosby, Nash, et. al.-discouraged her from going, telling her it was "no place for a girl" and encouraged her to do Dick Cavett. Then, after helicoptering in and out themselves they crashed the show, totally stealing all the attention with tales of what a happening it was. You can see the deflated look on Joni's face. youtube-able. Years later she remarked about having missed the defining event of her generation.

Worth noting also the contrast in the two versions of the song-hers is reflective, sparse, a bit melancholic or even elegaic. CSNY version is all raucous celebration.

She says it was her managers idea to not risk missing Cavett by getting stuck at Woodstock.
Can't see how CSNY could influence her decision, or saying it was "no place for a girl" when Joan, Janis and Grace were going.

Use VLC to record it (Mac or Windows).

Like that the Woodatock 2019 didn't happen.

How can you recreate a random assemblage of talented musicians, in a time of turmoil, and get bumped from venues right before the event, and then have them all play through the night in weather? Can't be done with modern technology apparently..

There was a lot of memorable and forgetabble music and an expression of one view of that generation. During the same time, August 15-18, there were about 109 American deaths in Vietnam. I will never be able to forget the juxtaposition of those two occurrences. Jimmy Hendrix was amazing.

It is amazing to me that with an estimated attendance of 400,000, with some pretty bad weather, and lots of drugs, there was not a single reported violent incident.

Here's a funny cartoon by Bramhall from today NY Daily News.
