Isn't it Ironic? Woodstock Will be at Ex-Military Base


The name is about the only thing that has carried over from the original Woodstock '99, the three-day music fest being held friday through Sunday at the former Griffiss Air Force Base in Rome, N.Y... "Much of the original Woodstock's appeal lay in the illusion it offered of a retreat to simpler values and simpler times, a return to the land and the sturdy agrarian virtues embodied in Max Yasgur and his peaceful cows," said Maurice Isserman, a history professor at Hamilton College who attended the first Woodstock and is co-writing a book titled "America Divided: The Civil War of the 1960s." "What values beyond those recorded on an accountant's spread sheet will Woodstock '99 represent?"
