This is the perfect climate and mood for a Woodstock. I wonder who will headline the festival.

I hope it isn't a disaster like Woodstock 2 (1999) was. I knew someone who worked that as a vendor and he said it was more hype than anything. People were not allowed to bring food in but the food they sold was outrageously priced. (I have a Woodstock 2 souvenir Pepsi can that my mother gave me.) And then there was the "mud people" who basically was swimming in mud puddles. And they would throw people who were just walking by into the mud. They asked one woman why they did that and her answer was, "So they could be like us." She just didn't get the "Woodstock Way" about being yourself and do not conform.

You can read about some of the "highlights" here:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woodstock_%2799

For those of you who do not know but the original and the second one DID NOT take place in Woodstock-but was supposed to and when it was moved, they kept the name.

Side note: "The Woodstock Way" was a musical play that I preformed in at the Woodstock Playhouse back in the early '80s. It was written by a local woman. No, it wasn't about the concert but about the town during WWII.

Actually, Cat, this is Woodstock 6, not Woodstock 3.

1969
'79
'89 (The Forgotten Woodstock)
'94
'99
2019

But '69 (for obvious reasons), '94, and '99 are the ones people remember.

As for guests, you think CSNY could quit fighting long enough to get back together?

Original Woodstock performers (still alive):
Grace Slick/Starship (Jefferson Airplane)
Joan Baez
The Who
Melanie
Arlo Guthrie
Country Joe McDonald
John Sebastian
CSNY
Santana
Mountain/Leslie West
The Dead & Friends (The Grateful Dead)
John Fogerty and/or Creedence Revisited
Sly and the Family Stone
Canned Heat (The original two lead singers, Alan Wilson and Bob Hite, are both dead)
Robbie Robertson
Blood, Sweat and Tears
Sha Na Na

Originally in talks to play Woodstock '69, but didn't play for one reason or another:

Jeff Beck (The Jeff Beck Group broke up)
Iron Butterfly (Special guest Doug Ingle?)
Led Zeppelin
Jethro Tull (Maybe Ian has lightened up about hippies)
Paul and Ringo
Bob Dylan
The Stones

Actually, the Jeff Beck Group didn't break up at that time. They were touring America and were schedule to play Woodstock (their name even appearing on some posters), and were already ensconced at a hotel in New York ready to go to the gig, but Jeff Beck flew home in a snit because he heard his wife was having an affair with the gardener. Not kidding! Rod Stewart, the vocalist in the Jeff Beck Group, talks about it in his autobiography.

The one I am talking about was dubbed "Woodstock 2" (maybe it was '94) which was a disaster.

I saw Jethro Tull & Bob Dylan in concert (not at the same time). I was very disappointed in Tull. My sisters went to see them in '78 and said it was one hell of a show. I saw them in the '00s, and I think Ian was kind of losing it-not to mention the acoustics were terrible.

Dylan was just AWFUL! The worst concert I have ever been to.

Why not?  He could do a rousing sing-along of "I Believe I Can Fly" with the whole crowd singing in unison. And then a medley tribute to Gary Puckett and the Union Gap, covering tunes such as "Young Girl", "This Girl is a Woman Now", "Lady Willpower", "Let's Give Adam and Eve Another Chance" and "Woman, Woman".

Before there was an R Kelly, there was Gary Puckett.  ;)

A lesser known band Uriah Heep is still making records, and they follow the progressive rock genre.  I think Mike Box (or another original member) is still alive.  He could come back for Woodstock.  Also, this could be a good chance for Oasis to reunite.  Wouldn't mind one of the members of Pink Floyd showing up (doubt a reunion there), even if they weren't there in 69.

... and don’t forget Joni Mitchell who was to play but opted to go on the Dick Cavett show instead. She penned the hit ‘Woostock’ (For CSNY) shortly after the event was ended. She managed to capture the mood of the event even though she was not there. Joni does not perform anymore and has been quite ill recently.Apparently, she’s getting better.

It's not that she opted to go on the Dick Cavett Show instead of playing at Woodstock. She was booked to appear on the Cavett Show the Monday after Woodstock and her managers made her stay in New York for fear that she wouldn't be able to get back from Woodstock in time to make the Cavett Show taping. She was very upset about this, and it was in her New York hotel room that she wrote "Woodstock" while watching news reports of the event. If you listen to her own version it has a very mournful tone, rather than the celebratory sound of the CSNY version, because she was sorrowful she wasn't there. The ironic thing is that both CSNY and Jefferson Airplane played at Woodstock yet made it out in time to appear with Joni on the Cavett show. So she would have made it in time anyway. Stephen Stills appeared on the Cavett show with the mud of Woodstock still caked to his boots and jeans.

What we really need is a 50th anniversary Altamont concert with the Rolling Stones headlining and the Hells Angels once again providing security (for nostalgia's sake, of course) and the rest of the bands would just be the lineup from Woodstock '99.

And R. Kelly.  ;D

Since it's not generally known, here is the lineup from the 1969 Altamont concert:

The Rolling Stones
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
Santana
Flying Burrito Brothers
Jefferson Airplane

The Grateful Dead were scheduled to appear but pulled out when they saw what was going on. It's kind of ironic, because it is the Dead who were primarily responsible for bringing in the Hell's Angels for security in the first place.

And while we are on the topic of Altamont, we need to end once and for all the ridiculous canard that "Altamont ended the 60s" or "killed the 60s" as is so often expressed. As if one event could "kill the 60s", for heaven't sake.  Any writer or commentator who ever says it again immediately reveals themselves to be a cultural illiterate. True, Altamont took place at the very end of the calendar 1960s, but, Altamont or no, the cultural 60s rolled right on until the end of 1972 where it finally just ran out of steam. Even the momentous event of the end of 1972, the landslide reelection of Richard Nixon, isn't responsible for "ending the 60s". By that point it was exhausted and simply petered out of it's own accord. I watched all this "go down", as we used to say. The 60s ideal had a nice run while it lasted though.

That's right .... I forgot that they were the other two featured guests on his show. I know I've watched that show on youtube and recall Stills  wearing the same poncho as at Woodstock.
