Jefferson Airplane and Woodstock

Postby Guest from Holland on Tue Jan 24, 2006 6:26 pm

I'm 24 years young and owns the who woodstock movie.
Not only the music of CSNY (big fan of it) really did something to me, also the appearance and music of the Jefferson Airplane really made an impact on me.
I already listened to Volunteers, Surrealistic Pillow and Bathing After Baxters and all of those albums are great.

What crossed my mind was the question what was it to be at the Woodstock festival.
This whole event was so overwhelming to see as a kid of the 90s.
Well if somebody of you had the privilege to be there or can share some nice things about that period, I'd like to know.

Nice site, nice forum.. 8)

Yes, I was there.
I already posted some remembrances in this forum quite a while ago.
If you can't find the post, I can repeat some of it.
Anything in particular you want to know?

A family friend was there, but he said that he was way out in the woods somewhere so he could hear everyone, but couldn't see them.

Am I mixing it up? Oh hell I don't remember. My memory is shit lately.
They are extremely uncomfortable with the idea that I am a teenage girl in the body of a 60 year old career criminal who has already died 16 times...

Thans guys, I try to find the other post.
I said in my post that it was the 'who' woodstock movie.
It must be corrected in 'two' and 'movies.
I have 3 day of peace etc and woodstock diaries.
The DVD's are quite different from eachother.

Well, I see the other post first (I have looked to it before, but I overlooked).

I, also, was in the woods. You can see a couple of photos of it in the Life issue. That’s where the Hog Farm was giving away some kind of oatmeal thing. I was in the woods almost all day Saturday, Saturday evening (Janis, Creedence) and into Sunday morning (Who, JA).

Oh I love the Woodstock film....far out man!
Jerry Garcia smoking a joint, Grace eating fruit, Arlo Guthrie with his guitar at the back.

That’s where the Hog Farm was giving away some kind of oatmeal


Yeah, it was mentioned in Woodstock diaries....
But hey, it was cool when Grace Slick watched Jorma jamming with others.
Do you know what I mean??? 8)

Just watched both DVD's (directors cut and Woodstock Diaries).
I had some beers and I love to watch it under influence of cannabis or alcohol.
You know :D I'm representing my generation.

I'm listening to David Crosby's If I Could Only Remember My Name.
Spaced out....
I have seen some cd's of JA in my local record store.
I'm gonna buy two or three cd's of them.

Well, what can I say; I guess that there are more people of my generation that aprreciate good 60s and 70s music.
It seems like that, but look at my record collection for instance.
I would recommend TSOOL (soundtrack of our lives), they are the most psychadelic band of the last 20 years.
They represent some JA, The Who, early pink floyd.
Try it out...

Gonna be here at the forum for a long long time :wink:

Hey!

thaTS cOOL - when people stay here!
I don't post on any other sites, but it seems odd that so many people just post one thing here, then never return or reply after they start a topic?
Is this the way it is on other sites?
It's good times now - I can see the light!
