Hard to believe it's now been 40 years since the Monterey Pop Festival in '67, and soon to be the same anniversary of Woodstock in two years.
You can see Monterey Pop's list of performers at:
Woodstock's performers are listed at:
Question to all....who have you seen in concert from either event?
My list from Monterey Pop:
The Association, Canned Heat, Ravi Shankar, The Who, The Grateful Dead
Blood Sweat & Tears, David Sanborn (appearing with Paul Butterfield's Blues Band), Canned Heat (again), David Crosby and Graham Nash (no Stills for me yet), Grateful Dead (again), Arlo Guthrie, Iron Butterfly, Mountain, Santana, and the Who (again).
Would love to have seen Hendrix, but those two years I was just a little too young (12 & 14).
Of the performers that you have seen at those events, who would you see again? Who was fantastic? Who was awful?
