    Default Today we had Woodstock in my livingroom.

    Since my family was out of town and my buddy's mom had to work we kicked back and watched the Woodstock 69 dvd.
    Great dvd, we had fun watching it and making fun of Sha Na Na.
    After watching it I only have one question.
    Why the hell was there such a small crowd for Jimi Hendrix's performance.
    I miss Bill Hicks.

    Bad weather and logistical problems caused long delays, so that Hendrix did not appear on stage until Monday morning. By this time, the audience (which had peaked at over 500,000 people) had been reduced to, at most, 180,000, many of whom merely waited to catch a glimpse of Hendrix before leaving.

    Thanks, I didn't know that. When we were watching it I told my friend look how small that crowd is. I was amazed that so few people caught that performance.

    Did you see Ron on that DVD? He was there watching Hendrix.
