Wednesday Woes ~ Like A Rolling Stone ~ Bob Dylan

I had a friend who said something to me in 1975 and I never forgot it.

This is what this song is about.

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.

First Version and video of Woodstock is my favorite. And is playing
