Happy 40th Woodstock!!!

Today marks the 40th anniversary to the start of Woodstock Music and Art Fair at Max Yasgur's Farm in Bethel, New York. Originally planned as a festival for 50,000 people nearly 10 times that amount showed up.

What still fascinates many are the stories of the bands that played, the journey people made to get there and almost the survival to stay there. To many in attendance the event shaped their lives forever.

Here is Jimi Hendrix with an iconic moment of the weekend.
