I had a hankering for Hippies.
The Richie Havens viddy is my favorite Woodstock performance. Joan Baez had great chemistry with Bob Dylan. John Lennon wrote the song "Norwegian Wood" about Joan.

I feel sorry for the locals of 'Woodstock.'  Like a herd of locusts, the dirty hippies descended upon Woodstock.  I am not sure tearing up the place is exactly peaceful, albeit, I admit it was like an accident waiting to happen, which surprise! didn't happen.  Woodstock's success breeded other attempts, like Altamont, which were not so successful.

But, I do like the performances at Woodstock, they're authentic for the time, I just don't like the pseudo-nostalgia that worships it.  (husband talking to kids: "and when I was at woodstock everybody got a long."  Wife:  "who are you kidding? you weren't at Woodstock!"  Husband: "well, I could have been!"  (paraphrased from a Doonesbury cartoon).  It was the Woodstock generation where everyone "could have been" at woodstock (but wasn't).  

But I am grateful to watch the film, that way I don't have to smell the the 3+ day body odor of the hippies (except maybe the skinny dippers).

But, thank you Vanuatu for your selection of videos.  I didn't know that there was large connection between Baez and Dylan, besides their folk music background.

The Hippies could not have known that the CIA wanted them on LSD. I'm sure they felt a great rebellion taking place against the MAN. Which is why so many people want in on the collective experience even if they weren't at the event, right?

There is a nice quality to the music, very spiritual at times. Yet utterly
unappealing to imagine using the bathroom or eating anything. Must be getting old 'cause that's a deal breaker for me.

I don't think it was the CIA that got the hippies on acid, nor did they get Cary Grant and his wife to experiment with it (under the care of a psychologist).

All those who rebelled against everybody over 30, are now over 30 (or dead).  I think the rebellion was pretty easy for a lot, camped out in the University, or getting what was it? 5, 6, 7 deferments like President Donald "Duck" did.

One thing I do not like, is that there was no President and will be no President who had combat experience from Vietnam.  
But, I do like music of the 1960s in general, and artists should wear their emotions on their sleeves, but they also shouldn't take themselves too seriously.

And there's not likely to be either. But, Afghanistan is still likely to be active for many years to come.

Unfortunately soldiers came back to an ungrateful public spewing venom and misdirected rage, and our government discouraged treatment of addiction for veterans as only bureaucratic red tape can. If the guy wasn't already shattered enough after combat or worse, coming home was no peace at all. John Kerry was 'brave' enough to tell congress about killing civilians and the veterans of that war were disgraced but in fact they followed orders. It looks self aggrandizing when you see the film of John Kerry help the US government pin the pointless killing on the rank and file.

Looking back at most of the music created during this period, there's not a lot to criticise about peace, love and understanding.

But if you think that peace is a common goal,
that goes to show how little you know.

Peace, Love and Harmony,
Peace, love and harmony,
very nice, very nice, very nice.
but maybe in the next world.

(Death of a Disco Dancer, by the Smiths)

There is a film clip at Berkeley where people are singing, "We shall overcome." and the song metamorphosizes into Yellow Submarine (naturally, it is not staged), that is kind of what happened in the 60s.  From earnest, protest songs to silliness.
