THIS DAY IN ROCK HISTORY: January 7, 1970: Max Yasgur is sued for $35,000 for damages to neighbors' fences. He owns the farm where Woodstock was held. During the festival when he heard some were selling water he put up a large sign by his barn for free water. Mr Yasgur passed away in 1973.
Woodstock, NY 1969. The land where the festival was held, is near my aunt's former farm. I heard that after the festival, the community shunned the land owner who had rented the land to the Woodstock promotors. Biddy Craft
