The short answer is Nno, it was not my generation’s gig. I’m a tweener, born between the baby Boomers and Gen Xers. I was 7 during Woodstock (couldn’t hitch a ride upstate NY).
And, I don’t care for most of the bands that played. There was a lot of stuff that might have seemed groovy at the time, but much of it has not held up well. There were but five acts out of 50 that I listen to regularly:
Creedence Clearwater Revival
Crosby, Stills & Nash
The rest are simply boring or dated or irrelevant. Yes, I know, Janis Joplin, blahblahblah. When was the last time you put on a Janis Joplin record? I am not a Grateful Dead head, and have long ago stopped listening to The Band.
This weekend, on the drive East, I played a Ultimate Yes. And on the beach, I have been reading Pigs Might Fly: The Inside Story of “Pink Floyd” — and listening to the albums as the book describes them (the early shit is insane). SOme years ago, I did some work for someone at Sony, and got the Shine On boxset as a gift. Sweet!
So, longer answer — no Woodstock, but late 1960s/70s psychedelia / Prog Rock this weekend.
