Yeah, there are a few of them "old hippies" still around. I think back in early eighties, I might have met Wayne. I do remember the "food bank" he used to run. I lived in a place called Lake Jackson, outside of Manassas, Va (Prince William County), when I first move back up to Virginia after getting a divorce and graduating from a community college in NC. Anyway, Lake Jackson was founded as a weekend "getaway" place for those of those who worked in DC. Lot's of woods, and small cabins. By the time I moved up there it definely had a "counterculture" vibe to place. Many local musicians, artists, ex (and not so ex ) dealers, Vietnam vets, ect lived in those cabins deep in the woods and overlooking the lake. There used to be a resturant/bar that everyone hung out in called the "Dam Site" (on the account of the dam, that created Lake Jackson) and it was cool little joint, where people brought their favorite albums (heard a lot of good blues and bluegrass played in there)and played them in the bar, and if the bar was busy, go behind the bar and fix themselves (and a few other people a drink), and of course, all the "regulars" pretty much had a "running tab" going (which most, more or less, "settled up" on their paydays). The place was definely loose, but in an "old school" hippy manner. Occasionally, Brian, who owned the Dam Site" would bring in musicians such as John Jackson (old Piedmont blues guitarist). Well, the Dam Site is long gone, and many of those cabins are no longer there, having been replaced with people building larger, more conventional homes, and I often wonder what happen to a lot of people who lived back on the lake (quite a few moved up to Front Royal/Winchester/Luray, Va area). Every once in great awhile, I run into some of those people. The stories we could tell.

Hi Deb!
Me too! I love the whole movie! Am reading Woodstock Revisited. Short stories from those who went to the festival. Each one is completely different. It's a great read!

Hey Peg! Seems like there have been a few good Woodstock books that have come out recently. Hmmm - I'm seeing a trip to Barnes and Noble in my future (make that yearly membership pay for itself ). Thanks for the tip! Have been reading about the new artist series CD's that have been issued and those sound tasty, also.

Having come of age 'back then' I just love everything about Woodstock ... old hippie at heart even today. Sunday Dateline had a pretty good show - Woodstock 40 years later ... interesting hearing from the handful that were interviewed and had been there then and had thier lives affected by Woodstock... Definitely a lot of stories to be told about this event.

I'm picking up the book, Peg!

I just ordered Back to the Garden:The Story of Woodstock by Pete Fornatale based on a recommendation from somebody here. Then I'll get Michael Lang's book. Also, VH-1 is airing a special on Woodstock this weekend.

I love it all, too!!

He looks like a cross between Slammer and Capt. Spaulding.
