The Who. Jefferson Airplane. Janis Joplin. Creedence Clearwater Revival. Grateful Dead. Sly and the Family Stone. Santana.
You know, there's a reason why Woodstock was such a big deal.
Saturday, August 16, 1969 might be the most impressive day in music history. Of course, the day that followed is quite a formidable competitor to that claim.
It should be noted that many of the bands listed above technically played on Sunday. Jefferson Airplane wrapped up their set at 9:40 AM on Sunday morning. But, for all intents and purposes, this is about the second day of Woodstock.
Creedence Clearwater Revival was one of the first major acts to agree to play Woodstock. But, any footage of their performance is pretty rare. The band was not included in the Woodstock film because John Fogerty did not like their performance or how it was captured.
