It's pretty hard to believe!

Yes, indeed, hard to believe. What was the average age of Woodstock attendee? Early 20's maybe? They'd be in their 70's now.

Yep. Grace Slick was 29 - she'll be 80 in October :shock:

Oh, my word.... 80?? I just can't think of her as that age.

Today, I watched an interview with Tom Baker, the iconic Doctor in the Doctor Who? episodes of the '70's (and the best Doctor ever). He is 85, and that I can kind of believe...but not GS in her '80's.

I know, I can't believe she's a little old lady now!!

Here, Joni Mitchell, David Crosby and Jefferson Airplane are on the Dick Cavett Show, discussing the festival the day after - August 19, 1969:

That episode is so interesting. They all sat around the stage instead of in chairs. It must have been such an amazing time.
