'Who Can Forget?' Woodstock: 的 10 most iconic moments from 1969

For more than a year now, music concerts and festivals of all kinds have either been canceled or compromised due to COVID-19. 但 福克斯民族‘Who Can Forget? 1969′ brings you back to a time when hundreds of thousands were free to gather for the concert of a lifetime.

那就对了, there was no social distancing at Woodstockwidely considered to be not just perhaps the most legendary music festival of all time and cultural touchstone for the decade, but a defining moment in American history. 事实上, the site of the festival – a dairy farm in Bethel, New York – is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

With a list of legends like Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Who, Creedence Clearwater Revival, 感恩的死者, and even a very pregnant Joan Baez taking the stage in the dog days of summer, Fox News contributor Tom Shillue didn’t hesitate to call the lineup ‘iconic,’ and having ‘epitomized the 1960s.

Shillue went on to note that Woodstock is where Jimi Hendrix debuted his famous electric guitar rendition of ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ – a moment that, at the height of the Vietnam War, had been especially profound.

但它 几乎 didn’t happen.

Not only did the planning of the festival itself go awry, 但, as the story goes, Hendrix nearly missed his own performance:

Hendrix had to hitchhike and bribe some kids a few miles away to get him to the venue,” remarked FOX业务’ 肯尼迪 in the episode. “He almost wasn’t able to show up for his set.

最终, 虽然, Hendrix made the showand the show made history.
