Woodstock '99

Woodstock '99 Concert Report

 

  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.

 

George Clinton

 

While 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 1999.

 

Monks

 

The 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.

 

The Godfather of Soul, James Brown

 

Specifically, 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.

 

Crowd Surfing

 

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 Foodville.

 

Photo Developer

 

On 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!
