If you missed Woodstock back in 1969, 2 weeks later you could have made your way down to Texas for the Texas International Pop Festival.

"…you can get anything you want…" On Aug. 24, 1969, Arlo Guthrie's film "Alice's Restaurant" premiered in New York City and Los Angeles. A true classic film for an entire generation. How much of the film do you remember and did you see it when it first came out? And…how many of you watch this […]

On Aug. 22, 1969, The Beatles got together for what would be their last photo session together and the last time they would ever be together for band duties.

On the second day of Woodstock, the artists were still having problems getting to the site on time for their sets. Just after Santana finished their historical set, the next band wasn’t there. However John Sebastian was. He was just hanging out backstage when he was asked if he would play a couple of songs […]

Photographer Iain MacMillan had a photo session on Aug. 8, 1969 where he took one of the most iconic pictures in the history of Rock and Roll.
