Woodstock '94 Started 15 Years Ago Today
Fifteen years ago today, Generation X arguably reached it's zenith, as Woodstock '94 began in Saugerties, New York.
Upstate locals 3 kicked things off on a Friday that also saw Blues Traveler, Collective Soul, Ice T, Live and The Violent Femmes. Tomorrow, August 13, was when the big guns of the day came out: Nine Inch Nails, Metallica, Aerosmith, Salt 'N Pepa, Cypress Hill and Rollins Band. August 14, a Sunday in 1994, was when some of the original Flower Children (Country Joe McDonald, Bob Dylan, Allman Brothers Band) mingled with Green Day and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Anyone have favorite memories of the event? Mine is above. Still gives me chills to watch it.
