@Ken Anderson used the word hippy in one of the other threads which made me think of Woodstock and some questions I've always wanted to ask. Some days ago there were anniversary celebrations of the famous rock festival. Over here, every news channel reminded viewers of the 50th anniversary of that hippy pilgrimage by showing original film material and those of the anniversary celebrations. Woodstock was an iconic symbol of the free world for my generation and although it took place at the most remote location we could think of and even though there was no chance whatsoever to be part of it, lots of young people I knew at the time thought they had missed out on something really great. Since I've never had a chance to ask an American and since you are the only Americans of that generation I seem to be kind of in touch with , I was just wondering what you thought of it at the time and how you look at it in retrospect? Has anything changed since then? Did you go? Would you have liked to? What does Woodstock mean to you?
