  • I was 6, didn't go, and don't remember knowing about it when it happened, just later.

  • Technically, yes. I was about 19 months old. We were even living in NY. My mom had friends who lived in Woodstock and still she said she was clueless about it until the reports of the traffic on the Interstate starting coming in.

    We've were listening to Richie Havens in tribute earlier. Met him once when I was in my 20's at a music festival. The friend of my mom's from Woodstock was playing and introduced us. I remember just being so starstruck and tongue tied.

  • Spouting...I'm NOT a boomer. Woodstock seems to be the epitome of what hippies and much of boomers were about...very self centered. They are called the "me generation" for many reasons.

  • Nope but I have visited the town of Woodstock a few times. My Parents had a summer home near there.
