All this talk about concerts and music festivals got me thinking about the parties (weddings, etc.) I've attended where the bands played way too loud and refused to turn it down, even when requested by the party hosts.

Seems to me that the band could be contractually obligated to plug their amplifiers into a special power strip that would have a built-in sound level sensor that would cut off the power if the band's volume exceeded a level chosen by the venue, party planner, and host. I even have a name for the power strip: The EarPlug.

What do you think?

Should have been at Woodstock but I had a wedding to attend, my own on August 17, 1969. Like I said, I should have been at Woodstock, the marriage was a bust.

Hi, Ali. Yeah, I never found a satisfactory hippie photo, but have now got a decent one, I think. And I've added "flower children" to the item title to cover the bases.

These look more like flower children to me ;-)

Yes, twozillas, exactly like me! Only maybe I was 14. I had older friends, and we talked about driving up from Nova Scotia, but I still wouldn't have been allowed to go. They couldn't have hacked it, but I would have loved it!

Actually, I think it's the 40th.

I didn't get to Woodstock, either, but I did attend the big "Summer Jam" concert at the Watkins Glen (NY) racetrack in 1973. Just three bands: The Allman Brothers, The Band, and the Grateful Dead. Great concert!

Happy 50th Anniversary, Woodstock! I was just a little kid :)

I wish I had a time machine and could go to the Woodstock festival. Didn't get to go. Regretted it for the past forty years. I never understood why my parents wouldn't let me hitch-hike up to NY state. After all, I was all of 15 years old!
