The Isle Of Wight Festival 1970 beats Woodstock hands down. The line up was incredible:-
Ten Years After
Emerson Lake & Palmer
Sly & The Family Stone
The Moody Blues
Tony Joe White
Taste ( Rory Gallagher )
And many other lesser Bands & Artists.
I was lucky to be there among the 600,000.

Good call on that one. Here's a modern day version of that, well, the part when they decided to turn the power off on Metallica. BTW, yeah, I was
there. For the full show(be warned, it's awful audio and video quality) look up Metallica riot 7 24 88. I have trouble imagining that youthful person
I once was that actually ventured into this fray. What a fool I was but I have one interesting memory from that day to be sure.
a reply to: TheSpanishArcher I made only one Metallica concert and that was in San Francisco Cow Palace. In sixty nine I also
went to the big free concert staring the Stones at the race track called Altamont in the hills east of the Bay Area. The one where the Hells Angels
were hired as security and paid with beer. They ended up punching out some of the Jefferson Airplane members and killed at least one person.
