This is a gently edited repost from August 15, 2009. I don't know about you guys, but I feel the need for a break from all the mind numbing craziness that seems to be robbing us of our own sanity and sucking our life blood out of our veins.
This video really gives you a feel for the massive size of the Woodstock crowd and the human drama playing out around the main events. There were young adults, small children and even some nuns. There were colorful buses, funny cigarettes and such. There was free form dancing and even a little nudity
But there was much, much more. This was the summer of peace and love and Woodstock was the mecca. Despite a crowd of nearly 500,000 people, a serious food shortage, mud and rain, there were no "incidents," as the fuzz like to say.
In this video, Joe Crocker is singing "With a Little Help From My Friends," an appropriate song while watching all those friends loving one another and singing and dancing together - or just grooving.
