Wednesday Woes ~ Like A Rolling Stone ~ Bob Dylan
I had a friend who said something to me in 1975 and I never forgot it.
He said don’t ever knock down the bridge once you’ve crossed over it. Because one day you may need it to cross back over again.
This is what this song is about.

Woodstock 40TH Anniversary
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.
First Version and video of Woodstock is my favorite. And is playing
