FC: Woodstock was a gathering of the masses not just for people to get high and to have unprotected sex, but it was to make a statemenr against "war". "The Woodstock Music and Art Fair in 1969 drew more than 450,000 people to a pasture in Sullivan County. For four days, the site became a countercultural mini-nation in which minds were open, drugs were all but legal and love was "free". The music began Friday afternoon at 5:07pm August 15 and continued until mid-morning Monday August 18."(http://images.search.yahoo.com/images/view?back=http%3A%2F%2Fimages.search.yahoo.com%2Fsearch%2Fimages%3Fei%3DUTF-8%26p%3Dwoodstock%2B1969%2Bpictures%26sado%3D1%26fr2%3Dtab-web%26fr%3Dyfp-t-501&w=320&h=218&imgurl=www.music-atlas.com%2Fimages%2Fwoodstock_17.jpg&rurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.music-atlas.com%2Fmisc%2Fwoodstock_pictures.htm&size=28.7kB&name=woodstock_17.jpg&p=woodstock%201969%20pictures&type=JPG&oid=f59b4ffe642531dc&no=3&tt=62)
1: This the man who stole the show at woodstock with his solo guitar performance of " The Star Spangled Banner" "Can't get no relief... The man take my herb." (By The WatchTower) "The photo on this vintage Hendrix poster was taken at Jimi's last concert at Isle of Fehmarn, September 6, 1970. Less than two weeks later, he was gone from us forever."

I think much of Hedrix lyrics prmote social change. And he was ahead of his time with his music.
2: After 9/11 our leader George Bush said we have to get the "evil do-er's". (HUH) The guy scared most people into a hole having people scared to death that someone might be out there to get us. People were less social and everyone was(is?) paranoid of one another.
3: So, "we" as people let Bush convinced us to stay in doors and be afraid and be hermits, Go America!!!! If you beilieve that 9/11 couldn't happen before it did and now you think that we were doing a great job with what happened then "you" live outside the rules of reality.
