The biggest party ever happened forty years ago and we're celebrating! The legendary Woodstock Music & Arts Fair was a happening at Yasgar's farm outside Bethel, New York, August 15-18, 1969. Better known simply as Woodstock (named for a town 43 miles away), it was of course much more than just a party. An experience! This generation was unified by a belief that peace, love and togetherness was the way. The enormous crowd,"half a million strong," endurred much rain thru the weekend to come together in harmony and get off on over thirty of the hottest rock stars of the day — many of whom are still touring, selling music and winning awards. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; Jefferson Airplane; Santana; Creedence; Joe Cocker; Sly & The Family Stone; The Who; Blood, Sweat & Tears; Janis Joplin; Leon Russell; Sha-Na-Na; Melanie; Canned Heat; John Sebastian; Grateful Dead; Jimi Hendrix.  Right on!
