    I haven't heard many live albums (or seen many live DVDs), but Woodstock is one of the greatest live concerts of all time. I watched the Woodstock documentary on TV this weekend. Joe Cocker, Santana, and Jimi Hendrix were my favorites. Were any of you at Woodstock?

    1) Live at Leeds - The Who
    2) Live Alive - Stevie Ray Vaughn
    3) B.B. King LIve in Cook County Jail
    4) Live at San Quentin - Johnny Cash
    5) Live Rust - Neil Young
    6) Live at Fillmore East - Allman Brothers
    7) Rock and Roll Animal - Lou Reed
    8) Live at Winterland - Jimi Hendrix
    9) Any live Grateful Dead
    10) Band of Gypsys - Jimi Hendrix
    11) Song Remains the Same - Zep

    These are my choices, not neccesarily in order of favorites. I do have a copy of Live in Cook County Jail autographed by B.B. himself. I took the liberty of making 11 choices, because I just didn't feel right leaving out The Song Remains the Same.

    My Dad was there. It was his first concert 16 years old. Can you imagine. I asked him what he remembers and he says "not much". "drugs, losing his clothes and mud sliding". However when I asked what was the most memorable act he said Richie Havens because he had the crowd doing breathing excercises first light and he needed them badly and Jimi Hendrix doing the Star Spangled Banner. He brought his brother and they actually had a ticket and saw the whole thing. They brought their grandmother because they couldn't leave the state without her as she was their guardian and they were on probation. Anyway they put her up in a motel and then ended up never going back there they hitched a ride home and ended up meeting someone from their hometown who said "Didn't you hear the announcement "would Leo and William K., please come to the concession stand your grandmother is looking for you." "I thought I recognized the names". Freaky Groovy. Can you imagine what an original ticket to Woodstock would sell on EBAY for. Unfortunately he had all his stuff stolen with the ticket. I've watched the movie looking for him at least a dozen times. The story is still good even if his memory is a little foggy.

    It went with the times nothing I could do about that. Actually his openness about it taught his children what to stay away from. And in turn helped me be able to discuss drugs with my kids. It's all good!
