Watching Woodstock 99!

So after watching I decided to watch some . Yup... not the original Woodstock at 1969 but the one that they had at 1999.

'Live at Woodstock 1999: 3 More Days of Love, Music, and Freedom' was really a big event at that time. It was the second attempt to have a similar 'Woodstock' concert and vibe, the first being 'Woodstock 1994'. Although, the essence of the original Woodstock was lost on this new one according to critics, the music was still very good. Not as good as those that played the original Woodstock but definitely the best that the year had to offer. I had gone through the sets of , , , and now I'm listening to the set of . My thoughts are they don't make this kinds of nowadays. Neither do they make this kind of music and the , my God, the mosh pits!!! Where are these types of mosh pits nowadays?

Now, I do know that there are reports of violence, looting, and rape during and these are sad and tragic incidents that marred an event for peace and understanding but remember people, this post is about the music. So looking at the lime up that played at the three stages during the weekend concert, man, I'm so impressed up to this day. played in the 'Emerging Artists' stage, granted that they weren't popular yet at that time in the States. You look at the artists and bands that played in both the East and West stages and you would be impressed no doubt!!! , , , , , , , , , , , , and ... is the word that comes to mind!

I love watching the clips from Woodstock too and it's just sad that they no longer hold such festivity nowadays. My favourite was Woodstock 1969 where John Fogerty (with the rest of the CCR) played.

I have never watched any of the clips of Woodstock from 1969 or 1999.
