Welcome to our full show coverage of the
Woodstock '99 show. We will cover from the day before the show until the day after the
riots. From the good, to the bad... and ugly. Our report will show all the joy that is
Woodstock 1999, yet also the chaos and sadness too.
not the official start of Woodstock '99, because it was George Clinton's
birthday on Thursday, that night he and his outrageously awesome band known as the
P-Funk All Stars (or Funkadelic) put on a full 4+ hours show! As many of you
know, George is considered the Godfather of Funk. As George would say
"Funk you very much." The crowd went wild as hour after hour of
great music filled the air the day before the official starting of Woodstock
official start began on Friday at high noon with Monks who followed the
Tibet ancestry gave their version of goodwill and best prayers by playing
their instruments. They played for about 15 minutes bringing good karma and
positive vibes to all. After the Monks came another Godfather.
none other than the Godfather of Soul James Brown! James had one of the
tightest backup bands i have heard in a long time. They were hot! Hot
like Sausy Pecante' De Na-Na Soul-in-stein! Hot! James was feeling good in
the Hot Tub! James and company put on a great show, yet i wished this was
back in his prime when he could dance around the stage using the microphone
stand like a play toy. Still, the music was great and James is, after all, the
undisputed Godfather of Soul.
After James Brown came Sugar Ray and then Jamiroquai.
Jamiroquai, who is known for his upbeat pop music, is a great slide groove
dancer as well. Anyone who has seen his music videos knows about his smooth
music and smooth dancing. Sheryl Crow came on next to an enthusiast crowd!
People were surfing and having a great time. After Sheryl came DMX. At this
time i was getting extremely hot and hungry so it was off to what i called
my way to the huge, literally over half-mile long strip of food vendors i
came unto this very smart vendor of film developing. Seems that all during
Woodstock '99 he would have various girls bare all while the crowd was
frantically cheering them on and taking photos. This vendor being no dummy
knew that people who come back to have their photos developed as soon as
possible and he was pretty much their only hope to buy more film and get it
developed on the grounds. Of course this is not the only time nudity was at
Woodstock. Far from it!
