My views of Woodstock '94

Before I begin, I should say that I never attended a rock concert or festival before in my life. Woodstock for me is a first. In '69 I wasn't even thought of, so suppose that I am genuinely of the Woodstock '94 generation. The event was billed as a musical experience and extravaganza, as part of the audience it has been for me at least far,far more. The rain has helped make it more, whether it is a more that would appeal to all I doubt. It is improbable that those who could not, tolerate vast amounts of mud and humanity could enjoy Woodstock. It is something that in cliched fashion I can honestly say of "I will never forget" for the individualism and decency of the people and the individualism and indecency of the weather - which soaked and mud covered most.
