Yes… I went to Woodstock by accident. I remember it as three days of mud, drugs, and the occasional snatch of music. It took us three more days to make it home to PA, where I promptly lost my job. I didn’t know it was a cultural phenomenon while I was there. I thought it was just an uncomfortable mess. I had no sense of the whole until I saw the movie. Lotta Freaks! All it really did was to accelerate the co-option of the counter culture and hasten its demise. :(
