My Woodstock Moment

Forty years ago thousands gathered in Bethel, New York for the first Woodstock Music & Art Fair. Over the course of three days concert-goers were treated to 32 acts, including Santana, Janis Joplin and Neil Young.

I was born in '88 so I missed all of the action, but through the magic of YouTube, I can pretend I was there. Of all the footage I've seen, Jimi Hendrix playing The Star Spangled Banner is definitely my favorite Woodstock moment and is forever imprinted in my music memory.
