Since my earlier posting of videos of folks who played at Woodstock 45 years ago this weekend proved so popular (The Who, Jimi, Janis, Creedence, CSNY, Tim Hardin) here are some more! Again, these are all live from that era but not necessarily from Woodstock.
First up, off live TV, Sly gets everyone to dance to the music, but not half a million this time. Then, to mix things up, the most famous cancelled act, Joni Mitchell, did respond with a little song about it a few weeks later. Finally, what else, but Jimi at Monterey with "Like a Rolling Stone." Although it could just as easily be "Wild Thing." Dylan's "grandma over there." Huh?
