BREAKING: Michael Lang, a co-creator and promoter of the 1969 Woodstock music festival is dead to me.

Sad.

Textbook example of a totally self-centered, selfish dick who was supremely indifferent to others. Lied, cheated, and stole to get "his" music festival put on, all the while deliberating misleading his partners/principal investors in the project.

Read "Barefoot in Bablyon" by Bob Spitz. It doesn't paint a pretty picture of Lang at all.

You’re harshing my buzz, man.

I think the cat was far out.

That Spitz guy was just jealous he didn’t think of it first, ya dig?

Wow, man.

Lang was also involved with the Altamont free concert. He was one of the sane people in a sea of homocidal madness.

He was quite cute when he was young, R4.

There's got be more than just that one song, R15.

Yes, but we have to wait until that one finishes before changing the LP, man.

What kind of fancy technology do you think we had?

Get a haircut, R17. You look like a girl!

He pretty much looked the same..yes, older...he had that great head of long curly hair.

I would’ve gone to Woodstock if I had been 12 years older and lived back East.

I was in Sun Valley Idaho in 1982 and went to a little bar one night with a friend. We didn’t know there would be live music and to my surprise Country Joe McDonald came out. He played for awhile, then took a 45” break and came back really stoned and played some more. It was great.

Has anyone seen the doc on the new Woodstock on HBO max? It’s actually really good. I love the part where Lang is saying there was plenty of fresh water for people. Then you see kids taking baths in free water stations. Breaking them. Water running everywhere with the backed up Porta potties. Making mud and shit rivers everywhere.

by Anonymousreply 21January 10, 2022 2:52 PM

Those muddy/shitty kids had it all over them...even in their mouths. Ewww...

r21 that Woodstock '99 documentary is excellent. We had a big thread on it. What a shitshow (literally)! Lang did not come off well at all.

Think about it, he was only 25 then.

My nabes went to Woodstock on Friday. They were back by lunchtime Saturday. To use today's vernacular, they said it was a fucking hellhole. You couldn't hear, you couldn't see, and it was mudsville. Homicidal mudsville. There were no homos at Woodstock.
