  •  When he was done (7+ / 0-)

    (I heard) he said he'd done every song he knew.  A trouper in the purest sense!

    Ironically, during the week of Woodstock, my friend and I were driving home from Cape Cod to New Jersey and came within an hour of Bethel, NY. But we skipped Woodstock because we heard it was sold out. (!) I have a permanent dent in my bum from where I've been kicking myself all these 43+ years.

    I did manage to attend some unique concerts but Woodstock would have greatly added to my massivekool resume.

    Thanks for the diary, Ed.

    Guns don't kill people but there's always one there at the time of death.
