We were tougher, unspoiled ( unless you wanted your ass kicked by your parents ), more mature and willing to take to the streets and fight for what we believed in. Even if we got our heads kicked in.
Weren’t always right, weren’t always wrong.
In 1968 two of our hero’s were murdered before the nations eyes. Bobby Kennedy & Martin Luther King Jr.
The 68′ Tet offensive threw Nam into another realm as if it hadn’t been disastrous enough. No doubt in any body’s minds that RFK would have been our next President had he not been assassinated.
And Nam would have ended soon after. But as the words goes it just wasn’t meant to be. And I still say why the hell not.

BY THE TIME WE GOT TO WOODSTOCK, WE WERE HALF A MILLION STRONG~!
It took place Aug. 15-18. It was the Concert of ALL Concerts. And it only seemed like yesterday. There was no Violence nor Chaos at the venue in the 4 days. The only disruption there was, was trying to get there. For the conditions that took place with lack of water, food, & personal necessities. Woodstock remained Peaceful throughout the four days without incident. In this Blog, I will take you through the concert with pictures, stories, & THE MUSIC.
It was billed as “Three Days of Peace and Music”. And they lied. It was ” Four Days of Peace and Music “.
SONG LIST DAY BY DAY, BAND BY BAND.
So sit back and ENJOY. No doubt some pictures I post will disappear and because of You Tube many songs I originally posted have already been removed, so I won’t find all the footage of all the actual Woodstock appearances. But I’ll do my best to show 100% of it as I can.
