Jimi Hendrix’s version of the “Star Spangled Banner” became the highlight of the festival.

“The festival actually took place…about fifty miles away from Woodstock. [The city of] Woodstock was the original location since that was where Bob Dylan was currently residing.”(Remember a day: Woodstock) so to answer your first question, it was named after the city it was originally supposed to happen in. “[police estimated that there was] a million people [on the road trying to get in], 186,000 tickets had been sold; the promoters figured that maybe 200,000 tops would show.”(Remember a day: Woodstock) Nobody thought it was going to be as big as it turned out to be. The promoters who are trying to sell Woodstock to the people even underestimated their own work. “So many people arrived that crowd control was next to impossible.
Another thing teens were crazy about were music festivals. They would travel all across the country to go to festivals that would go on for days. The largest festival of this decade was Woodstock. Rock promoters rented a farm in Woodstock, New York and organized a performance for an audience of around 50,000 people, however over 400,000 people ended up showing up from across the country (the editors of Time-Life 146). The farm turned into a huge campground filled with teens that came there for peace, love, and music (the editors of Time-Life).
Walk the Line Mike Smithburg Rock & Roll & American Culture Mike Smithburg Rock & Roll & American Culture Film Review 5/21/12 Walk the Line: Film Review Walk the Line is a great movie documentary of the early part and heart of the late great Johnny Cash (J.R. Cash). The movie starts out on his farm in the mid forty’s when he is approximately ten years old. The main point the movie gets across about his childhood is that he has a physically and emotionally abusive father and his brother Jack dies in a sawmill accident when he is just a few years the elder of J.R. Then the film jumps straight to when J.R. is shipped to Germany with the Air Force to be a military policeman. The film soon jumps to when he is living in Memphis with his wife and baby as a unsuccessful salesman. He starts practicing with his band “Johnny Cash and the Tennessee Two” and decides to bug Sam Phillips at Sun Records to let him perform for him quickly and the end up making a record that day.
I’d like to think of him as my musical soul mate. Interestingly enough, I found out we both like the same artists. Some of which include Bob Dylan, the Beatles, the Who, the Rolling Stones, and Jimi Hendrix. Well, after that we started an inseparable friendship. Once I heard about Woodstock, I knew I just had to go.
Cristiana Hampton MUS 105-04 Marva Watson 10/10/2013 Music Event Report: Apple Festival and the Gospel Sing On a beautiful Wednesday in September my home town hosted the Murphysboro Apple Festival. While helping my dad prepared and sell food in his concession the programs began around five thirty. As the programs started I watched Apple Fest goers the provided bleachers and their personal lawn chairs. The mayor introduced the ceremony giving an over view of what the evening had in store. The first performances were by a couple of blue grass bands who performed with non-orchestral instruments such as the banjo and the harmonica.
Hendrix later left to England to play in his own band called the Jimmy Hendrix Experience. His band made it big in England and he soon returned to the United Sates. In 1969, Hendrix performed at the summer Woodstock music festival. This event is where Hendrix became most famous. Woodstock completely changed the musical world.
It showed that people from all walks of life could live peacefully together.Others say that it was a celebration of the youth culture. The event showcased the optimism of the 1960's through the slogan "Peace, Love, and Rock 'N' Roll.History was made by many things during that long weekend.From the New York State Throughway being closed down for the first time, to babies being born in the field, to no violence throughout the event despite the enormous crowd in
The sounds coming from his guitar seemed to make a comparison of himself as being a free spirit that had a drive of passion for the music he was making. Throughout the performance it showed that on stage he enjoyed what he was doing and wanted everyone who watched him to feel the exact same way as he did. Hendrix knew how to get the crowd moving to the sounds of his guitar almost to the point of no worries but enjoying the music with the people that surrounded you at the festival. Seeing this musical experience myself made me wish I could’ve witness this kind of greatness and share it amongst my friends in that time period. Overall, what I’ve learned about music is that music is not only written but also speaks like we do as humans but in a different language sort of speak.
Although one example of the sort of music at the benefit concert was how David Bowie sung “Rebel, Rebel” and “We Could Be Heros” these songs drove the desire to potential donors as rebellious and/or heroic actors in the fight for famine relief. 2.
