woodstock.13: How is the Music? Your review goes here!



woodstock.13.0: otis (nycjag)  Tue 9 Aug 94 12:05

 So, who's been good and who's been bad? Or who has been in between?What band
 knocked you socks off that you had never heard before? How is the sound? Do
 you feel like extras in a pay-per-view telecast?


woodstock.13.1: editorial comment (green)  Tue 9 Aug 94 14:09

 Sounds like some great music this time - if I were there I might even listen
 to some of the music this time! - Everyone from Youssou N'Dour to Traffic!


woodstock.13.2: jenn (wstock5)  Thu 11 Aug 94 18:25

 this shit sux and if i didnt get paid to be here i would never have come.
 green day will save th
 green day will save this corporate rock elitist shit from total nausea!!!
 here is d some real innovative bands not considered enough of a "draw"-
 boredoms, babes in toyland, fugazi, riot grrl shit, and courtney will conquer
 this male dominated female oppressed institution we call rock .
 punx not dead!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


woodstock.13.3: Michael Newman (jstraw)  Thu 11 Aug 94 18:48

 boredoms, now *there's* a thought


woodstock.13.4: Robin Joss (joss)  Thu 11 Aug 94 20:34

 
 I'm going to guess that alcohol is part of the catering for this
 revisitation.


woodstock.13.5: Davis McPherson (davism)  Thu 11 Aug 94 22:15

 
 what she said!


woodstock.13.6: otis (nycjag)  Fri 12 Aug 94 06:30

 i agree!


woodstock.13.7: yo dude (wstock1)  Fri 12 Aug 94 09:24

 welcome to woodstock II and tell me where are you from


woodstock.13.8: just an old hippie (tigereye)  Fri 12 Aug 94 13:27

 Could someone post the schedule so those of us who are there only 
 virtually get an idea of who's playing?
 


woodstock.13.9: liam (wstock2)  Fri 12 Aug 94 15:08

 jenn, i hope you read this. i have fallen madly and deeply in love with you
 and your music tastes. see you down the front for the saviours of punk,
 GREEN DAY!!
 Long live indie rock


woodstock.13.10: Conceived at Woodstock? NOT! (mglito)  Fri 12 Aug 94 15:23

 So long as we're here, what's going on onstage RIGHT NOW?


woodstock.13.11: sen (wstock4)  Fri 12 Aug 94 16:58

 JAKAL OR DICK THAT GUY WAS THE MOST ROCKSTAR MOTHERFUCKER IVE EVER SEEN IF
 HE HAD A CAREER B4 HE DOESNT NOW  '' SHE LOVES MY COCK''  HE PULLED HIS
 PANTS DOWN
 IS THERE ANYBODY OUT THERE?


woodstock.13.12: gopod for a day (jbk)  Fri 12 Aug 94 17:04

 
 
 Not any more.
 


woodstock.13.13: pacifism (wstock5)  Fri 12 Aug 94 18:48

 people relate to their past through their memories; woodstock is the memory
 of goodwill for everybody, every human being who's got the right to live and
  express themselves would enjoy this event. Two thums up for the organizers
 and artists
 


woodstock.13.14: ralph (wstock3)  Fri 12 Aug 94 20:03

 Todd Rundgren is blowing away the entire festival. His stage set-up is very
 accessible and is playing four times a day. He's the only reason I came here
 and aside from the hassles getting into the site (metal detectors, buses)
 it's a blast.


woodstock.13.15: Michael Kevin (mikalkev)  Sat 13 Aug 94 02:26

 
 	What is the story with Todd Rundgren?  He couldn't be performing
 four times a day??  Is it some kind of interactive computer setup??
 Anything like his recent tour??


woodstock.13.16: Steve Rhodes (srhodes)  Sat 13 Aug 94 06:33

 He's in the tech area where the well booth is (forget the name). CNN showed
 him playing to a bunch of people, talking to them, making them part of the
 show. He was one of the more interesting aspects of the Music & Multimedia
 prgram at the Castro theater in San Francisco during the film fest.


woodstock.13.17: Danica Remy (wstock2)  Sat 13 Aug 94 07:27

 Did he have the pod at the Music & Multimedia program?


woodstock.13.18: starchild (wstock1)  Sat 13 Aug 94 07:47

 Sheryl Crow ROCKED on the radio in the Red parking lot. I was trapped there
 until 9 am. I'm one of the lucky ones.


woodstock.13.19: erinita (wstock3)  Sat 13 Aug 94 08:44

 it's 11:30 sat, and the cranberries are scheduled to go on the south stage
 at this moment.. the well however is way far off in a distant corner, across
 a sea of people & tents.. last night it took us an hour to cross from the
 surreal field (here/the well) across the north field to the north stage. joe
 cocker is kicking off this morning (which is why i'm online at the moment),
 but i wouldn't mind seeing salt-n-peppa, nine inch nails, melissa ethridge,
 cypress hill & some others that i can't remember..
 last night violent femmes were good, and james (the band) asked the crowd,
 "is the spirit of wdstk here tonight...? cuz you sure as hell ain't gonna
 find it on those pepsi cans.."  :)   my fave was ravestock last night- i met
 some guy who was lucky enough to find a ravestock flyer. when i got there,
 (south stage, after the femmes on north stg) orbital was on, followed by
 nasa. that was decent. dee lite came on, & although i wasn't too psyched to
 see them initially, they did a decent groove & were fun. after that they
 played some mellow stuff (disapointing.. i went there to DANCE..) and aphex
 twin was not worth the wait. so i trucked off to find some sleepage.. got 3
 hours..     :)
 


woodstock.13.20: ccr (wstock4)  Sat 13 Aug 94 09:29

 its hot and humid .  joe cocker is playing now.
 cindy frrom buffalo says: I didn't want to come until he started kissing my
 neck last nite!!!!!!!!!
 Now I now why I am still agreeing to accompany him on these  not so
 glamorous excersion in search of his squandered youth


woodstock.13.21: Alan Turner (arturner)  Sat 13 Aug 94 10:08

 What did Joe cocker open with?


woodstock.13.22: just an old hippie (tigereye)  Sat 13 Aug 94 10:42

 Hey, don't skip Joe Cocker. He's old but he's faaaabulous.
 


woodstock.13.23: let my inspiration flow... (tomthumb)  Sat 13 Aug 94 11:22

 He opened with that song "...are you all right, I'm not feeling too good
 myself" 
 
 Just watching Blind Melon - they were on!


woodstock.13.24: let my inspiration flow... (tomthumb)  Sat 13 Aug 94 11:23

 
 What's the sound like??  Are there speakers everywhere so that you can here
 from the furthest reaches of the grounds (eg the well-tent???)


woodstock.13.25: on the other side of the sun (miga)  Sat 13 Aug 94 11:37

 Oh, Erinita, I was looking for you!  You missed the Orb, I'm afraid...they
 went on at about 4:15 after a shortish Aphex Twin set [he was having
 feedback problems at first + the music was really industrially flavored,
 very different from his stuff that I have heard before.  The Orb was just
 absolutely stellar.  They did more dance beats than usual and blended
 familiar samples/themes from their trax with new beats and samples... there
 was an incredible tribal break!  But I'm getting ahead of myself.  At about
 4:30 or so lightening began to flash in the sky and it misted a little.  I
 was saying "no rain!  no rain!"  but a bit later it started to rain - big
 drops - and I thought I'd surely catch cold but NO WAY was I going to leave
 until they stopped playing!  The rain went on just long enough for the
 fainthearted to take off, then miraculously stopped!  They went on till
 nearly 7:30 and it was great - When we got there around 2 it was basically a
 concert scene, DeeLite was playing and everyone was standing facing the
 stage and the only time they all danced was to Groove is in the Heart.  DL
 was ok.  There were DJs mixing between the sets, I didn't hear Doc Martin at
 least as far as I could tell.  The mixing was kind of uneven, more abrupt
 changes of tempo than I'm used to.  But the Orb was just outstanding, and
 the crowd at the end was definintly a typical early morning rave scene,
 people dancing and smiling.  Yeah!


woodstock.13.26: gimme an "F"! (reva)  Sat 13 Aug 94 12:24

 Sounds incredible, M!


woodstock.13.27: Puddnhead Wilson (warfrat)  Sat 13 Aug 94 13:24

 Someone please tell me here in San Francisco how CSN was at pepsistock! 
 My favorite band of all time! 
 
 Hello Saugerties and all the folks new to cyberspace communication! 
 
 HAVE THE BEST TIMES OF YOUR LIVES!!!!!!!!
 


woodstock.13.28: dee (flanagan)  Sat 13 Aug 94 13:30

 csn plays tonight, warfrat!


woodstock.13.29: Puddnhead Wilson (warfrat)  Sat 13 Aug 94 13:48

 Cool! Will be looking for the review. Thanks dewd!
 


woodstock.13.30: Liam (wstock3)  Sat 13 Aug 94 14:37

 Shit. I missed Aphex Twin. He was not in the lineup I saw.


woodstock.13.31: Mad Hatter (airman)  Sat 13 Aug 94 14:42

 CSN 9pm EDT and 6pm PDT from David Crosby on IRC


woodstock.13.32: Puddnhead Wilson (warfrat)  Sat 13 Aug 94 14:45

 Inter Relay Chat? That's gonna be a mess! I'll check it out anyway.
 


woodstock.13.33: Mad Hatter (airman)  Sat 13 Aug 94 14:56

 IRC was conquered by the Vulgarians for awhile. But since Woodstock phones
 are down only the PPV crowd is on talking about The Band and the schedule
 with INFO.
 
 IRC is self-inflicted realtime spam.
 
 Watch yourself out there...


woodstock.13.34: David Gans (tnf)  Sat 13 Aug 94 14:57

 How do you get onto irc?


woodstock.13.35: Puddnhead Wilson (warfrat)  Sat 13 Aug 94 15:32

 Simply type "!irc" and you should get through to an open line. Sometimes, 
 however, the system can't find one for you. In that case, just try again. 
 I've never had to try more than twice. That may be different during the 
 earlier part of the day (I've only irc'd late night).
 


woodstock.13.36: David Gans (tnf)  Sat 13 Aug 94 15:33

 How do you get to the woodstock channel?


woodstock.13.37: Puddnhead Wilson (warfrat)  Sat 13 Aug 94 15:40

 Once you get an open line, your cursor will (should) be at the bottom of 
 the screen all by itself. With irc, you must type a slash "/" in front of 
 all commands. To list all open channels, type "/list" for a complete 
 list. However, there is no pagenation so it will keep running all the way 
 to the end. I'm not sure how to get around this. 
 
 Before you do that and if it's your first time on, type "+i" for a help 
 menu. That might be the best thing to do. 
 
 I'm going to check it out now. I'll come back when I finish for a perhaps 
 better and more definative explaination. Stay tuned.
 


woodstock.13.38: Max Yasgur's Ghost (axon)  Sat 13 Aug 94 15:44

 
 the last two hours on PPV have been amazing.  the band, joined
 variously by bruce hornsby, bob weir, wasserman, kaukonen, casady.
 then bob and rob and hornsby.  followed by csn, just now starting.
 amazing.
 
 


woodstock.13.39: Streetlife Serenader (nitewing)  Sat 13 Aug 94 15:47

 Yeah, but they cut off Bob & Rob at a horrible time (the end of T.Stones)
 really bad job I thought....Especially since the announcer just talked for
 30-40 seconds while they were playing and then they cut away, really
 unprofessional.... And why is Bob & Rob w/the Band playing while CSN is
 playing anyway? I
 m pretty sure that audience would like to see both of them...


woodstock.13.40: 2 young for # 1 (isaac)  Sat 13 Aug 94 15:57

 
 here's the irc scoop:
 type: !irc from an OK prompt
 then, after you connect, do: 
 /join #woodstock
 then:
 /nick 
 


woodstock.13.41: let my inspiration flow... (tomthumb)  Sat 13 Aug 94 16:03

 I agree.  I was pissed that they cut off Bob & Rob (& Bruce).  It was right
 in the middle of the big T.Stones jam.
 Also played was Fever and Eternity (no Bruce on either)
 
 Could someone post some lists to both the Band and CSN when its over - I'm
 taping and not quite sure of some of the names of songs.


woodstock.13.42: Puddnhead Wilson (warfrat)  Sat 13 Aug 94 16:06

 Thanks isaac! 
 
 btw, there is another woodstock channel, #woodstock2, as well. 
 
 So which one will croz be on? 
 
 Suggestion for those who might feel intimidated at first. type "/help" 
 for a list of help commands (this is a correction from my previous post) 
 then at the "?" prompt type in the topic you would like help in or type 
 "basics" for a description of the basic commands in irc to get you 
 started. 
 
 If you know what channel you want, don't use the list command. It is 
 extremely long! Does anyone know how to stop the scrolling in "list"?
 


woodstock.13.43: 2 young for # 1 (isaac)  Sat 13 Aug 94 16:14

 
 there is probably a way to use a pager, but I don't know how. And you can be on #woodstock 1 and #2 aat the same time!
 


woodstock.13.44: editorial comment (green)  Sat 13 Aug 94 16:18

 I found you could just type your message, with *nothing* infront of it, and
 they could see it and who said it


woodstock.13.45: 2 young for # 1 (isaac)  Sat 13 Aug 94 16:37

 
 yeah, that works. I'm gonna go irc, right now. If you see this message within a few min. of when it was posted, type !irc
 join me!
 


woodstock.13.46: Streetlife Serenader (nitewing)  Sat 13 Aug 94 17:17

woodstock.13.47: Alan Feldstein (fiddle)  Sat 13 Aug 94 17:28

 I enjoyed Joe Cocker's set a bunch..Big surprise, as I saw him on tv last
 month and wasn;t thrilled.  The Band was fun, as were CSN..I hate the two
 stage thing, though, and it is depriving concert goers and viewers of some
 great music..we'll probably miss most of SAantana and the Nevilles on the
 South Stage tomorrow...:-(


woodstock.13.48: gimme an "F"! (reva)  Sat 13 Aug 94 17:48

 Ooh ooh ooh, the Nevilles!


woodstock.13.49: 2 young 4 # 1 (isaac)  Sat 13 Aug 94 17:56

 NIN is starting at this second
 
 


woodstock.13.50: aud (dam)  Sat 13 Aug 94 18:04

 how could ANYONE be pissed that Bob & Rob were cut for CSN???
 Spare me!  Besides, the rest of Bob&Rob&the Band will be broadcast
 overnight...
 
 Hey  fucking awesome set!!!
 
 I have to admit that watching in my living room is a hell of a lot
 better for me...I would've been at the South stage until the Band,
 et al were done and then would've missed most of CSN............
 ........but I didn't have to ;-)
 The Band's set, btw, was very impressive.  Enjoyed the hell out of them


woodstock.13.51: ghost host (mandala)  Sat 13 Aug 94 18:08

 I assume they're doing all this cutting away to encourage us to buy whatever
 official version they're planning to peddle later.
 
 Meanwhile on MTV there's this bit with this obnoxious bitch named Kennedy
 who went around in the middle of the night and woke people up for a cheap
 thrill.  Imagine paying $135 and getting exploited like that when you're
 trying to catch a few zzz's...


woodstock.13.52: aud (dam)  Sat 13 Aug 94 19:06

 i'd kill her ;-)
 
 they had to cut away for CSN.  their entire set was broadcast.
 and the rest of Bob & Rob & the Band will make it on the overnight
 broadcast.
 
 Dan, meanwhile, is downstairs loving Nine Inch Nails.


woodstock.13.53: Tom Mandel (mandel)  Sun 14 Aug 94 09:23

 
 CSN *still* can't sing live...


woodstock.13.54: far out (flanagan)  Sun 14 Aug 94 09:52

 i thought the scat at the beginning of deja vu was fine.  what do you think
 of dicky betts, tom?


woodstock.13.55: We must be in HEAVEN, man! (tnf)  Sun 14 Aug 94 09:54

 My pal fiddle says Aerosmith is the surprise smash so far.


woodstock.13.56: aud (dam)  Sun 14 Aug 94 10:09

 have to disagree, mandel.  they sounded just fine to us.
 
 and even tho the genre isn't normally what I enjoy, I *really*
 liked Metallica's set.  and no, this is audrey, not dan ;-)
 maybe it's because I had just watched Nine INch Nails, and then
 Salt & Pepa (who imho were incredibly bad).  don't think i'd
 go to one of their shows, but now I"ll listen to dan's tapes...
 
 ABB are on now and are ripping the place up. looking forward to
 seeing the HORDE in 2 weeks...


woodstock.13.57: perfection is the scourge of psychological health (paris)  Sun 14 Aug 94 10:11

 ahhh, dickie betts....  


woodstock.13.58: far out (flanagan)  Sun 14 Aug 94 10:26

 yeah, but he's a redneck assshole in real life though.  or was nine years
 ago anyway, when i lived in his stomping grounds..  the tri-city area of
 Oneco, Samoset and Tallevast.


woodstock.13.59: perfection is the scourge of psychological health (paris)  Sun 14 Aug 94 11:00

 but he sure can play gi-tar, dee.
 
 i don't wanna marry the dude.  i jest like listening to him play!!!


woodstock.13.60: let my inspiration flow... (tomthumb)  Sun 14 Aug 94 11:03

 Just finished watching the ABB set.  It was pretty standard - they didn't
 really stretch the songs out further than the jams naturally built into em.
 Oh well - it sounded hot anyhow.
 
 Set list:
 Missed the first 2 (?) songs -maybe Saling Cross the Devils Sea and
 Statesboro??
 Blue Sky
 Same Thing
 Soulshine
 Midnight Rider
 Jessica
 Nobody Left to Run With
 Back Where it all Begins
 One Way Out
 E:  Whipping Post


woodstock.13.61: Zulu\ (wstock3)  Sun 14 Aug 94 11:18

 Well, I came just to see Salt n' Pepa, and maybe even Spinderella, too, but
 it looks like I missed them.  At least I met Cortes Kennedy, though.

woodstock.13.62: Wendy J. Brewer (shrew)  Sun 14 Aug 94 11:58

 I want to he more about Nine Inch Nails.... What did they sing ? What
 did they say ? What did they do ?
 
 Hope they did 'Closer'  *evil grin*


woodstock.13.63: Tom Mandel (mandel)  Sun 14 Aug 94 12:15

 
 >Sounded just fine to us...
 
 Well, maybe the audio mix on TV was poor.


woodstock.13.64: TJ (wstock3)  Sun 14 Aug 94 13:56

   The couch potatoes have taken over this chat -- well here's the real shit
 from the trenches:
    Craziness in the tent areas from the start, making it tough for the
 bazillions actually here to make it anywhere near either stage. No
 supervision, control or walkways to get from one place to the next. Great if
 you like confusion. Better if you like pay-per-view. 
    As of Sunday afternoon, the clear winner of the Best Band in Show was
 Greenday. The South stage crowd waited for them for hours, and when the
 stage was rotated after WOMAD, the boys were ready. The crowd went fully
 berserk. Green Day played great music, but soon an incredible mud storm
 overwhelmed the stage, forcing cameramen to run for cover. As moshers swept
 toward the stage, anarchy was near and a riot seemed imminent. But the
 security hung tough, the bass player got a cut lip, and the energy typical
 of a 90s show -- not 1969 -- dominated.    Other top performances: Rollins Band -- in a monstrous downpour; Melissa
 Etheridge -- surprisingly decent; Live -- Friday's best; Porno, Peppers
 still to appear.
    Overrated: Aerosmith (too long, too late); Metallica (same old shit);
    That's the music. Now, those of us here in the MudWorld want to know:    How many people were here? How many people have died?
 
    See you on the video.
 
    TJ


woodstock.13.65: Liam (wstock1)  Sun 14 Aug 94 14:11

 I have to agree with TJ, Green Day really were the hit of the weekend.  They
 showed us that punk rock is definitely not dead (ie a giant mud fight, a
 stage invasion and finally a band and fans vs. security fight!)  The mug
 (that should read mud) fight was amazing. I pogoed, crowd surfed, stage
 dived, moshed and jumped up and down like an over excited kid. No other band
 will move me like that this weekend.  It's just a pity the organisers
 weren't a little more daring with the choice of bands.  I thought Woodstock
 was all about rejecting the mainstream.  There were no non mainstream bands
 here.


woodstock.13.66: axl rose (wstock3)  Sun 14 Aug 94 15:26

 Music is great but would be better if guns and roses were playing!


woodstock.13.67: Sally lost in space (joss)  Sun 14 Aug 94 16:09

 I've never heard most of these bands, I'm a chicken shit non-adventurous
 type getting off on your antics via Pay Per View....I only received access
 this morning...for me Porno for Pyros was something very different.....I
 can't really say what happened outside of giving myself a tattoo during
 their performance....well, it's only half done because I started late and
 PPV switched to the Neville's , who were good but inspirational in a
 different way.


woodstock.13.68: Michael Newman (jstraw)  Sun 14 Aug 94 18:24

 The main thing about CSN, is that Stills can no longer sing live, and his
 current guitar sound is just awful.


woodstock.13.69: aud (dam)  Sun 14 Aug 94 18:34

 jeez, michael, i don't think we watched the same set.  oh well.
 
 and just becuase i'm not there bathing in mud doesn't make me a
 couch potato!!  life has other responsibilities and priorities,
 y;know......


woodstock.13.70: Alan Feldstein (fiddle)  Sun 14 Aug 94 18:37

 The CSN set seems to be the most controvertial of the festival..many loved
 it, many hated it....I thought Dylan was outstanding....


woodstock.13.71: aud (dam)  Sun 14 Aug 94 18:45

 we did, too.  he really looked like he enjoyed every minute of it, too.
 that tape's a keeper...
 
 Peter Gabriel will be great, too.  I saw the set he's going to do
 tonight at his little warm-up theater show here on Friday.  It's
 excellent.


woodstock.13.72: Max Yasgur's Ghost (axon)  Sun 14 Aug 94 18:56

 
 i thought CSN was embarrassing.  i watched the movie from 69 the other
 night and thought they sounded awful, and thought that their
 appearance at 94 would be an opportunity to redeem themselves for
 pretending to complex, stressed harmonies.  you'd think they would
 have, i dunno, *rehearsed* a few times before this.  maybe brought in
 a vocal coach to be brutally honest with them and kick their butts.
 
 simply knowing what you *want* to sing is not enough.  you must also
 actually hit the note, on cue, in key, and *listening* to each other.
 they should all be ashamed of themselves, and that goes double for
 stills.  nash was the only one who came out of this at all honorably,
 and then only by default.
 
 


woodstock.13.73: Sharon Fisher (slf)  Sun 14 Aug 94 19:00

 Wish I'd seen the Band and Nine Inch Nails.  Saw video of the latter; Trent
 running across stage, covered with mud, and tripping the guitar player...


woodstock.13.74: well's cargo (dlee)  Sun 14 Aug 94 20:27

 From PPV, I gotta say CSN rather sucked: lethargic, poor harmonies, genrally
 low energy.  And Graham, jeez, the guy really made some pretty pandering
 pronouncements.  Crosby seemed the least impressed with himself, and the
 most innocent.
 
 Allman Bros. get my vote for lumpiest flesh and smoothest music!
 
 Traffic was much better than I expected--nice and tight and Rockin'!
 
 Red Hot Chili Peppers just finished, and they kicked it out!


woodstock.13.75: Sharon Fisher (slf)  Sun 14 Aug 94 20:58

 The all-night rave sounded cool.


woodstock.13.76: Post N. Steiner (rb1229)  Sun 14 Aug 94 21:03

 Gotta agree CSN was way weak, but seeing folks crowd-surf to their acoustic
 ballads was hilarious.  Nine Inch Nails was way cool for about 25 minutes,
 then Trent's whining got the best of me. Mettalica's encore of "So What"
 summed it all up. And for a bunch of sober old dudes, Aerosmith gave it
 their all.And someone said they played too late? When a show goes to 3:30am
 these years you should be damn well psyched.
  Porno's set was rather wild,especially the psycho clown number. Perry
 didn't try too hard to stand out did he?
 GreenDay's mudfest was absolute entertainment from this couch!!!
 Bob was great but where was Like a rolling Stone?
 Well, hope they clean it up before the 40th ann.


woodstock.13.77: Tom Mandel (mandel)  Sun 14 Aug 94 21:13

 
 Green Day's mud battle was most entertaining, although you can
 see why the security guys lost it...they were getting hammered
 from both sides.


woodstock.13.78: Nicolas Pasquale Valle (buzzcut)  Sun 14 Aug 94 21:15

 from my ppv vantage point, CSN SUCKED BIG, face it these guys can't sing no mo
 and they looked REAL SCARY.
 NIN was fun, ABB really sweet, just don't look at em either, Green Day
 ruled, real fun, Chili Peppers were real awesome, looking forward to Pete
 Gabriel but my favorite moment is undoubtedly THE BAND,and fuck that idiot
 motor mouth bitch announcer ppv has happening, to talk during that
 sweet sweet jam with weir ans wasserman. INEXCUSABLE


woodstock.13.79: It's 123 and I don't give a damn, next stop... fall tour (hightime)  Sun 14 Aug 94 22:35

 Is it just me or does Green Day's vocalist sound like Billy Joel?

 I didn't see CSN at W'stock, but I caught them six days earlier at Saratoga
 and would have to take the middle ground. The energy and the musicianship
 were fine but the harmonies were way off. Maybe that's why they didn't
 even try to do Suite Judy Blue Eyes or Teach Your Children, even though
 they were selling Teach Your Children shirts. Croz looked a bit better
 than he has in recent years, but Stills has really gone to pot.
 YMMV.

 Steve Tyler's comment on what he remembered about being at the first
 Woodstock (as an attendee): "...many, many mics."
 
 Saw CS&N being interviewd Friday night (CNN?); sounded incoherent to
 this ear.

 Just watched the whole show on pay-TV in germany. Oh god - is that it?
 CSN - not better than 25years ago
 NIN - kinda losers, eh? Boring "we would like to be the Butthole Surfers of
 the
 90s stuff" I switched off my TV.
 Cypress Hill - that blunt wasn't burning. Fake gangstas come - fake gangstas
 go.
 Porno for Pyros - o.k. so far
 Metallica - that guy behaved like Johnny Rotten (pretty amazing...)
 Primus - best show I saw in Woodstock
 Joe Cocker - hey man, why don't he lie down and die????
 Salt'n'Peppa - real MTV-goes-rap-style
 Neville Brothers - umh!?
 Arrested Development - keep em arrested
 Cranberries - what the fuck was that? Music??
 Aerosmith - I missed it, I'm glad!
 Red Hot Chilli Peppers - I wanted to miss em
 The Band - do you know what a "Jammerlappen" is? Bet you don't wanna know!
 Bob Dylan - 1 Million-Hippie-Man (good wage)
 Santana - who's that??
 Peter Gabriel - Ethno-Master vs. Mud-People
 
 The crowd - a bunch od losers
 
 Ya know what I told my girlfriend that night? "I'm happy I don't have to b
 there"
 Conlusion on german TV? "You can celebrate capitalism - for 135$"
 
 So far
 Dietrich

 i thought the lead singer from green day sounded a lot like the lead
 singer from wang chung.  indeed, i thought it must be some sort of
 parody at first.

 I only hearda few tuens from Cocker's set onthe radio yesterday,
 but I thought he sounded rock-solid.


woodstock.13.85: We must be in HEAVEN, man! (tnf)  Mon 15 Aug 94 09:27

 He was surprisingly lucid and pleasant in interviews, too.  I guess I
 expected him to be pretty spazzed out after all these years.


woodstock.13.86: well's cargo (dlee)  Mon 15 Aug 94 09:48

 I thought Cocker did just fine in his set.  Lookin' pretty gray, but the old
 dude still has some fine energy and nice soul.


woodstock.13.87: gimme an "F"! (reva)  Mon 15 Aug 94 11:45

 I was amazed at his coherence, too. Jeez, he sure does look like a middle-
 class, middle-aged guy, though.


woodstock.13.88: Max Yasgur's Ghost (axon)  Mon 15 Aug 94 13:09

 
 well, he's been on letterman plenty of times over the llast few years.
 he's very well-spoken and intelligent, and just a little rascally.
 he's had a string of MOR hits over the last few years as well, with
 the moveie soundtracks and whatnot.
 
 i was very impressed with his set, but not surprised.  he did a little
 too much blow back in the early days, but he straightened out his act
 and he's been turning out journeyman pop ever since.  his work with
 jennifer warnes has been outstanding.

 yeah, but who doesn't? ;^)


woodstock.13.90: gimme an "F"! (reva)  Mon 15 Aug 94 16:16

 I don't!

 just watched the end of the tape we made and was really shocked that
 Peter Gabriel's set was basically missing...only the last 4 songs.
 too bad, his set was grat Friday night...
