Vor 40 Jahren ....Woodstock....

Himmel, schon 40 Jahre...??? Eine halbe Million statt der erwarteten 60 000...-
Already 40 years...??? Half A million people instead of expected 60 000 in Bethel....
Einmal im Jahr schaue ich das Video...immer wieder auf's Neue von der Musik fasziniert, und wie das alles möglich war...-
Once a year, I try to watch the video...all over again fascinated...by the music and how it was possible...
Das ist Bethel heute....-
This is Bethel today....

A funny note, here in Rodrigues I met a lot of people who had absolutely no clue about Woodstock, even the ones' who are heavily in music...Hard to believe, but it's certainly a sign of how fast time goes by...

I'm feeling old... Was it really 40 years ago? I remember it like it was yesterday! (I was 14 at the time, way too young to attend, but saw all the news on TV, and bought the record--yes, vinyl--when it was released.)

By the way, a new film by Ang Lee is about to be released soon..."Taking Woodstock." Can't wait to see it.
