ANYBODY MAKE IT TO WOODSTOCK? TELL US ALL ABOUT!
I didn't make it to Woodstock. I did however; get to play music with two of the Woodstock acts.
"Church", the band I was in, went On the Road Again - Going Up to the Country and opened for Canned Heat in Lafayette, LA. The herbs were good that night. The last set ended up with us jamming with Canned Heat's Bear, Blind Owl and Mole!
One night at the Ivanhoe Lounge on Bourbon Street two guys with white lab coats drug in a whiter than white, skinner that skinny, long haired hippy type and they, in the white coats, proceeded to pour glass after glass of straight whiskey down the Skinny Albino. Johnny Winter was kicking the H and the Med people were keeping him drunk through the ordeal. As the next set was getting started the white coats dragged Johnny to the stage, put a guitar around his neck and a pick in his fingers and Voila, Instant Hoochie Koo!
I don’t think he knew his name that night but he knew how to torture that guitar!
