Woodstock '69 - Joplin appeared at Woodstock in the late hours of Saturday, August 16, 1969. She performed until the early morning hours of Sunday, August 17. Despite her reportedly not even knowing of the festival's existence, the Woodstock promoters were advertising her as a headliner. She thus became one of the main attractions of the historic concert. Joplin informed her band that they would be performing at the concert as if it were just another gig. When she and the band were flown in by helicopter with the pregnant Joan Baez and her mother from a nearby motel to the festival site and Joplin saw the enormous crowd, she instantly became incredibly nervous and giddy. Upon landing and getting off the helicopter, Joplin was approached by reporters asking her questions. She deferred them to Caserta as she was too excited to speak. Initially Joplin was eager to get on the stage and perform, but she kept getting delayed as bands were contractually obliged to perform before her. Faced with a ten-hour wait after arriving at the backstage area, she shot heroin with Caserta and was drinking alcohol, so by the time she hit the stage, she was "three sheets to the wind".Joplin took the stage following Creedence Clearwater Revival. On stage her voice became slightly hoarse and wheezy and she found it hard to dance. Throughout her performance she frequently spoke to the crowd, asking them if they had everything they needed and if they were staying stoned. She pulled through, however, and the audience was so pleased they cheered her on for an encore, to which she replied and sang "Ball and Chain". Her performances of "Kozmic Blues" and "Work Me, Lord" at Woodstock are notable, though her voice breaks while she sings. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Janis_Joplin

20 Historical Photos (In Color) You’ve Never Seen Before… The Queen’s Sister Is WOW. It's 2015, and many of us tend to document every conceivable moment of our lives. We snap a few dozen pics on our devices, add a few filters, and post them on social media within minutes. All things considered, it might be difficult to imagine a time when photographs were rarely in color - and certainly weren't subject to rounds of insta-editing. These iconic images were originally taken in black and white, but some lovely human has recently colorized them to give us a better view into what the past look liked. The saturated color in these images certainly shows them in a whole different light - If the subjects saw them today, they'd totally Tweet them, #nofilter. #1. Audrey Hepburn looking radiant. #2. Johnny Cash looking like he's up to something. #3. A WWII Red Cross driver, looking fly. #4. Marilyn Monroe, looking like a queen. #5. Princess Margaret and Queen Elizabeth, looking coy. #6.

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Freebird Recorded Live: 7/2/1977 - Oakland Coliseum Stadium - Oakland, CA More Lynyrd Skynyrd at Music Vault: http://www.musicvault.com Subscribe to Music Vault on YouTube: http://goo.gl/DUzpUF Personnel: Ronnie Van Zant - vocals Allen Collins - guitar Gary Rossington - guitar Steve Gaines - guitar Artimus Pyle - drums Leon Wilkeson - bass Billy Powell - piano Cassie Gaines - vocals Jo Billingsley - vocals Leslie Hawkins - vocals Summary: Just three and a half months before the fateful plane crash that killed Skynyrd members Steve Gaines, his sister, backing vocalist Cassie Gaines (of the Honkettes), and lead vocalist Ronnie Van Zandt, Lynyrd Skynyrd played this 4th of July weekend program in Oakland. While this is only a partial recording of the show, two of the three songs are probably the ones you would skip to anyway: "Sweet Home Alabama" and the legendary closing track that has inspired legions of concert-going yokels to make millions of ironic requests over the years, "Free Bird." The first track is an excerpt of a standard Skynyrd live show cover, Jimmie Rodgers' "T for Texas" The guys take six minutes to stretch their legs on this version of "Sweet Home Alabama." The song had been released three years prior as a response song to the Neil Young numbers "Southern Man" and "Alabama," which were both critical of southern politics. Ironically, by some reports, Van Zant was wearing a Neil Young t-shirt at the time of this performance. The show is closed with "Free Bird," which by many fans' estimations is only rivaled by Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven" as the most epic closing song in rock history. Allen Collins handles most of the five-minute solo, while Gary Rossington plays the "bird-chirp" guitar parts, which are not on the original recording, as well as the slide work on the opening riffs. Billy Powell also plays a masterful piano solo that is unique to the live show. While Lynyrd Skynyrd would release the multi-platinum Street Survivors in October of 1977, the band's structure would be fundamentally devastated by the crash of their private Convair 240 that took the lives of three members, as well as the pilots and assistant road manager Dean Kilpatrick, and terribly injured every other member, except for Honkette, JoJo Billingsley, who was at home with her children and had reportedly begged the band to quit using the plane after dreaming of such a crash. From the ashes of this Skynyrd incarnation, Van Zant's younger brother, Johnny, stepped in and made Lynyrd Skynyrd a popular band once more when they reformed in 1987. Lynyrd Skynyrd is planning to release an unearthed recording of pre-plane crash Skynyrd in 2009.

These Stunning Photos Of Woodstock In 1969 Perfectly Capture The Moment. Just Wow. On August 15, 1969, people came together to celebrate peace, love, and rock ’n’ roll in upstate New York. The festival was marketed as “Three Days of Peace and Music.” The event was organized to raise enough funds to build a recording studio. A 600-acre farm served as the gathering place of what was initially going to be 186,000 attending, turned out to be about 500,000 people at Woodstock. The self-described hippies enjoyed a weekend of music from Janis Joplin, Joe Cocker, Santana, Joan Baez, and Jimi Hendrix. Rolling Stones magazine has named what is now simply called Woodstock as part of the "50 Moments That Changed the History of Rock and Roll". The original Woodstock poster. 186,000 tickets were slated to be sold. When nearly 300,000 people began to show up on Friday, organizers made the event free to everyone. The youth of the 1960s began to be referred as Woodstock Nation. The location: Max Yasgur’s dairy farm. When asked for his location to repeat the Woodstock phenomenon, Yasgur said he would stick to dairy farming. Musicians played songs with themes opposing the Vietnam War. There are claims that two babies were born during Woodstock. Although no one has come forward to claim they were the babies. Perhaps more accurately a woman went into labor on her way to the festival. Another woman is believed to have been airlifted to the closest hospital. Nonetheless, many babies were conceived during that weekend. Janis Joplin was hesitant to take part in the event. When she saw the crowd, she was described as nervous and giddy. Jimi Hendrix was the last act to perform on Monday. By then most of the attendants had left. Nonetheless, he played for a crowd of 30,000 people. Hendrix famously played a solo guitar version of, "The Star Spangled Banner." Woodstock was not actually held in that town. It was held in Bethel, New York. The highway became a parking lot. Thousands of people simply walked to the venue, abandoning their cars. Artists had to be flown in helicopters to the stage. Grace Slick bandmember of the Jefferson Airplane. Sylvester Stewart of Sly & The Family Stone, was described as one of the best shows of the festival. Despite the large number of people attending Woodstock, there were no incidents of violence reported. Santana. Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead. The weather was rainy and muddy but no one seemed to mind. Woodstock has been described as an important moment in musical history.

The 1969 event was undoubtedly one of the most formative moments in music history, but as we've learned with most music festivals, they lend themselves to some pretty awesome style-spotting. Long before the concept of street style or even festival style existed, Woodstock showcased inspiring women wearing sweet bell bottoms, crop tops and knit dresses.

Rare color photographs of the community of American hippies of the 1970s These photographs depicted young men who have created a whole new way of life by becoming members of a hippie commune. These communities spread throughout the United States: from the desert regions of the West to the South-West and New England. The new settlers built their own adobe and wood houses, worked together and shared revenues, to set their own rules and restrictions.

I am very proud of the TV series I made for PBS called Making Sense of the Sixties. I had the chance to spend a year examining my youth and how I became an active member of the 60s generation. If you are from that generation or a child of the 60s, I think you would find the entire series of value. To see my other work visit www.theHoffmancollection.com. A quote from Hesiod, 8th Century BC “I see no hope for the future of our people if they are dependent on frivolous youth of today, for certainly all youth are reckless beyond words. When I was young, we were taught to be discreet and respectful of elders, but the present youth are exceedingly disrespectful and impatient of restraint" #hippie #1960s @countercutlure

A documentary from a 2008 thesis project at New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP). I'd love to do a much higher resolution version with more subjects. If you're a child of hippies from the 1960s and 1970s, and you are interested in interviewing yourself on camera. I'm ready to do another version of this video! Contact: www.calebjc.org, [email protected] Here's the background of this project. I interviewed several children of hippies in 2008 and made an experimental interactive web based interface to watch the interviews by time, question, or subject. Later I edited this video together as a documentary. The kids of hippies are a fascinating subject to me, and not just because I am one. I believe they are rare window into the results of an informal experiment in alternative child rearing. Here's my thesis intro. The Hippies of the 60s and 70s created a social revolution that impacted everything from recycling to relationships, from tofu to what was taboo. They made their mark from the halls of justice, to the Halloween costumes you can buy for your kid ironically, at your local drug store. Many hippies were weekend hippies who wore the costume and went back to work on Monday. A few hippies however totally changed their lives and dropped out of normal society altogether. Some of these hippies then had kids. These kids were not hippies like their parents. They did not decide to drop out. They were born dropped out. In 2008 six of these children of hippies, now in ther 30s and 40s, were tracked down as part of a thesis project in experimental documentary video. They were asked to answer the same set of questions, while recording themselves using a video camera. The interviews are from an experiment in new interfaces for documentary video as part of a 2008 Masters Thesis at the Interactive Telecommunications Program at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, also by Caleb Clark.

Filmmaker Barbara Bedick captures the ambiance at Woodstock just before Max Yasgur gave his speech...whatever day that was. Higher quality compared to original posting. See film maker, Barbara Bedick's blog at http://www.cookingthekitchen.com, for a memoir-ish food blog with musings on life, this and that, and including recipes. Link to Cooking the Kitchen on my profile. 8/19/17 from filmmaker Barbara Bedick: Since yesterday, August 18th was an anniversary of the end date of the Woodstock festival, I thought I would add something, having found an old poem, written during that summer. Here follows some background, and then a poem by my then, 20 year old self. July 1969, the summer of love, and when the US astronauts walked on the moon for the first time on July 20th, and it was telecast on tv. I watched in a bar that was full of people drinking beer, and celebrating the moment. I lived in a rented room in a house of a family. The father was an artist, mom worked in Kingston, and two children, a boy and a girl. I was treated like a member of their family. But I also had privacy and my own entrance/exit out of the house, as my room was sort of an addition to the house. Every morning I bicycled to The Art Student’s League, and studied painting/drawing with Arnold Blanche. Later that summer, Aug. 16-18 was the Woodstock Festival at Max Yasgur’s farm, close to our summer bungalow in the Catskills, outside of Monticello, New York. I returned to our house in the Catskills, from Woodstock, just in time to go to the festival. I returned wearing a headband around my head and down my back, and a bracelet of bells around my feet. The world was changing. The poem below are impressions of my month in Woodstock, where I studied painting. Tales of Woodstock A rainy misty day. The song of Groovy, and how we skipped through the streets. The space around us was filmed in a fine mist. The air was warm, and we were like children. Piling into a car, watching the countryside rush past. Girl in white dress, patchouli wafting in the air. Harmonicas were played, and the harmonies existed. Bluesy songs, sung from the heart and soul. The flower children sat atop the car. Not only on top, but all over it. There was food, and everyone shared. Besides that, there was love between them, and the feeling of being one. The flower children thrived on life, and yes, “wore flowers in their hair.” People slept in cars at night, but lived at Becky’s during the day. For there was music at Becky’s. Music is emotion, something to groove on. Climb into the sound, and the music will speak to you. Song of how we tromped through the streets together, arm on shoulder, arm on waist. How we would pool our money together, 36 cents rich, with a penny to spare. Sometimes hustling money. Other times playacting for food. Laughing through the hallowed alley, then the lot for cars which was painted with white lines, o v e r the log, careful not to step in mud or glass, down the street and past the dogs to the cafe, where friends would gather. Weighing the importance of Indian Pudding. To leave we would walk up the hill, and it did not “bring us down.” It was a song of how we played like children, walking arm on shoulder, arm on waist, through the streets of town, like the sun with laughter. Mountains surrounded the town, like a strong, strange army, forming a complete circle in the distance. The gentle guru, old, white haired man, would tell the tale that once under the shadows and spells they cast, the mountains would bring you back. You would have to return someday. Glimpsed while speeding down the hill on your bicycle, in the cold morning, the mountains seemed blue, and a rich green. Colors to be used in your watercolors, later that morning. At times the mountains would be covered in mist, or buried under billowy clouds. Other times the view of their majesty was completely clear.

When you think of enchanting images of Hollywood stars — Marilyn Monroe wrapped up in silk sheets, Audrey Hepburn flashing a knowing grin — do you wonder about the person behind the camera? And how they possibly captured that delicate moment? For the past 50 years, photographer Douglas Kirkland has found new angles on the world's most familiar faces. The Fort Erie transplant still surprises himself with stories from the field; like that time Elizabeth Taylor agreed to let him photograph her after a prolonged break from the public eye. Douglas Kirkland was born in 1934 in Fort Erie, Ontario. At age twenty-four, Kirkland was hired as a staff photographer for Look magazine and became famous for his 1961 photos of Marilyn Monroe taken for Look's 25th anniversary issue. He later joined the staff of Life magazine. A Who's Who of notable persons have posed for Kirkland from the great photography innovator Man Ray and photographer/painter Jacques Henri Lartigue to Dr. Stephen Hawking. Entertainment celebrities he has photographed include Mick Jagger, Sting, Björk, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Morgan Freeman, Orson Welles, Andy Warhol, Oliver Stone, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Leonardo DiCaprio, Coco Chanel, Marlene Dietrich, Brigitte Bardot, Judy Garland, Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren, Catherine Deneuve, Michael Jackson, and Diana Ross. Kirkland's portrait of Charlie Chaplin is at the National Portrait Gallery in London. (Photos by Douglas Kirkland)

With decades gone by after historic events have passed, we often think we’ve seen those events from every angle possible. On occasion though, new images surface long after the photo was snapped that show historical moments in a whole new light. The following images are so rare, it’s incredible we are able to see them today at all. Get ready to take a look at history in a new way that seems almost unbelievable!

Jefferson Airplane's diamonds performed at Woodstock, on 17th August 1969 . "Somebody to Love", written by Darby Slick and "White rabbit", written by Grace Slick. It was back in the year 2008. I had just started listening to Jefferson Airplane. I had looked them up due to a reference John Densmore does in his book "Riders on the storm" to the song "White rabbit"; I was very impressed by the lyrics and...well, the rest is history I guess :) Searching through youtube, I found this very video that I have posted here. Sadly, it was taken down shortly after that, probably due to copyright issues and shit. So, I decided to upload it and make it available for everyone again. Jefferson Airplane's performance of these two songs is included in a film called "Woodstock:The Director's Cut" by Michael Wadleigh. "Good mornin',people!" Really digging: Jack's outfit and groovy headbanging, Spencer's hat and badass drumming, Marty's voice, sideburns and tambourine, Jorma's playing and crazy hair, Paul's headband and vocals (well on other songs :p) and Grace's eyes, barefootness (lol) and of course her unbelievably amazing voice. Love Jefferson Airplane's spirit. Go ride the music people and enjoy! Edit: I have posted the lyrics in the subtitles area. I think it's helpful! Enjoy everyone!
