Never mentioned in the papers, news shows on TV or the Internet, but as i type this for all of you out there ... Happy 43rd anniversary, Woodstock 1969!
Music was the magic as we 700,000 gathered in upstate New York for three days of music, art, peace, love, food, fun, learning and, yes, wine and drugs.
I was honored and proud to be a part of that history and weekend event as we were one big happy family -- no fights, no violence, and no drive-by shootings!
This huge event will never be duplicated, and its feelings and chemistry won't be either!
We shut down a war, drove two presidents from office, changed the face of America and united as one voice!
As I awoke this morning, played Santana's song, "Soul Sacrifice," I thought to myself: Our country right now, as angry and unsettling as they all are, needs this -- a genuine soul sacrifice and searching!
Peace and love to all of you.
