Pete Fornatale's Woodstock top 5

Here's Pete Fornatal's Top 5 Woodstock performances (off the top of his head):
1 The Who
2 Jimi Hendrix
3 Sly & The Family Stone
4 Joe Cocker
5 Santana

Tough to argue since it is personal taste and this is a neverending type debate...BUT No CSN? That's crap. If you don't get goosebumps from this, you have no taste in music. I'm talking to you Loki. And Sha Na Na needs some love too...I would bump The Who for CSN. I think they stole the show.

Dog seems shocked that there was recreational drug use at Woodstock - on behalf of the entertainers AND the audience! Stop the presses. New headline: Hippies smoked pot and tripped on LSD 40 years ago at Woodstock!

ps: I have a buddy with a Cocker Spaniel pooch and he named her "Joe" just so he could say he had a "Joe Cocker Spaniel"

I have a feeling that Gman used to smoke a ton of pot in his younger days. KBilly not so much...

Loki trying to smoke me out are you? It worked.

Loki said...

Oh boy, Gman are you high right now?!

KBilly...I pegged you in your mid to late 20's. Didn't realize ou were the guy wearing a fagbag and a ponytail that brings kids on nature hikes.

Personally, I think virtually all of that music sucks but I'm feeling like a grumpy old man today.

Awe
What music sucks? Todays or back in the orig woodstock time?

Because, while hippies rate right there with Mike for me, the woodstock group could FART and be more of an art than ANY of the garbage that passes for music today.
Obviously, my opinion.

Oh, except The "Boss". I LOATH him, and I kinda liked him before I started listening to MMD. Then I saw the light.

CSN has to be in that list I think. I would also take the Who off because I don't even really remember their performance.

People tend to overrate Springsteen too much so I can see how you wouldn't like him.

Manny and DAVID ORTIZ tested positive for steroids in 2003. Ortiz is such a lying piece of shit.

AwesomeSean said...

I meant specifically the artists listed in the post. Just not my style. As far as today's music sucking I'd agree except Jack White might have something to say on the matter. Him aside, and maybe the B-Boys, the rest of it sucks.

The Boss? God, that man is wholesale suckage. He sucks full time.

Watch out Mets fans...5-0 at this time. Now, we may need to root for the Phils since they're playing SF. Makes me queasy but might be necessary.

Ok. Another deleted post.

Can SOMEONE clue me in on WHAT is going to be allowed and WHAT is NOT?

Its your blog and your rules, if those rules and I won't mix, I understand, but I can't be double thinking everything I write.

If its ok to dislike MMD, but NOT A LOT, well.....its your blog, and I respect that, but I won't fit.

Thanks.

Gabagool...What was deleted? The only delete here was deleted by author.

No deletions from FTLT or gman26. It takes a lot to get deleted on this thing. Gaba - Michael Jackson once talked about the man in the mirror.

Elvis Presley= DEAD
Michael Jackson= DEAD

The one and only KING:

Bruce Springsteen!

Come on guys I'm a long suffering Mets fan you have to give me this one just for his longevity. LOL

JD

AwesomeSean said...

JD...five in a row. Your suffering has ceased. Now, Little Richard still performs and so does Tom Jones. Longevity simply means evolution needs to speed up. Springsteen is an idiot blowhard draft dodging Jersey fool.

Sorry bro.

AwesomeSean,

The Mets are now winning because I gave up on them and hardly watch.

I'm gonna try that theory out with the Jets this fall. LOL

Please be kind to us Jersey Fools it ain't easy being one of us(lol).

AwesomeSean said...

I think I am pragmatic about the 2009 chances but I still watch. Kind of like hanging in the backyard with a brew seems like baseball game kinda thing.

Us NYers are fools too. Hey, Misfits are from Lodi and I love them. Just something about Bruce makes my skin crawl. Mostly it's the politics to be honest.

Hi GMan.

It is a pretty good selection that they did. I would add at least one name more but it is well like it is.
