El festival de Woodstock

El Festival de Woodstock

Corría 1969. En Enero Led Zeppelin había lanzado su primer álbum y Nixon asumía la presidencia de los EE UU; en Marzo, John Lennon y Yoko Ono se casaban en Gibraltar y se moría Dwight Eisenhower; en Mayo “The Who” presentaba su Opera “Tommy”; en Julio se estrenaba la película “Easy Rider” y Neil Armstrong ponía sus pies sobre la Luna…….. Estos son algunos eventos de aquel histórico año que en materia musical, será recordado como el año del Festival de Woodstock.

Carlos Santana, el batero murió poco después.

 

Cuatro nombres para un concierto

Michael Lang, John Roberts, Joel Rosenman y Artie Kornfeld son los padres de la criatura. Con la finalidad de hacer un “tremendo negocio” y después de muchas discusiones decidieron preparar un concierto multitudinario para el que calcularon una asistencia de unas 200.000 personas que pagarían una entrada de $18 por tres días.

Para ello escogieron el pueblo de Woodstock fundado en 1787 en el condado de Ulster, Nueva York, aunque el concierto se hizo, finalmente, en una granja del pueblo rural de Bethel (condado de Sullivan) a 69 kilómetros al suroeste de Woodstock. En ese momento nunca imaginaron que iban a generar uno de los hitos más importantes en la historia de la música pop.

 

Jimi Hendrix sería el encargado de cerrar el festival

Un error de cálculo.

El total de entradas anticipadas vendidas fue de 187.000 (un verdadero récord) y de allí el “estimado” de que asistirían 200.000 personas, sin embargo, el flujo de asistentes fue tan grande que produjo un congestionamiento masivo nunca antes visto en el estado de New York. El número exacto de personas que asistió nunca lo sabremos, aunque muchos coinciden en que se reunieron allí unas 500.000 personas aproximadamente.

Viernes 15 de Agosto 1969

El concierto se inició el Viernes 15 de Agosto, pasadas las 17:00 horas con la actuación de Richie Havens, le siguieron esa tarde noche: Sweetwater, The Incredible String Band, Bert Sommer, Tim Hardin, Ravi Shankar, Melanie, Arlo Guthrie y cerró la entrañable Joan Báez.

Sábado 16 de Agosto

El concierto se reinició a las 12:15 horas con estas presentaciones: Quill, Keef Hartley Band, Country Joe McDonald, John Sebastian, Santana, Canned Heat, Mountain, Janis Joplin with The Kozmic Blues Band, Grateful Dead, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Sly & the Family Stone, The Who y Jefferson Airplane.

"Con una ayudita de mis amigos", la canción que cantó Joe Cocker se transformó en un himno.

Domingo 17 de Agosto

Después de una larga noche, pasadas las 14:00 horas se subía al escenario Joe Cocker, Country Joe and the Fish, Ten Years After, The Band, Blood Sweat & Tears, Johnny Winter, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Sha-na-na y cerraba Jimi Hendrix.

Algunos datos

Es mucho lo que podemos decir sobre este concierto, por ejemplo que la banda Mountain, interpretó entre otras “Theme For An Imaginary Western” compuesta por Jack Bruce. Que The Who empezaron a tocar a las 4:00 de la madrugada (de sábado para domingo) y ejecutaron un concierto completo de 25 temas. Que despúes de la actuación de Joe Cocker el domingo, se desató una gran tormenta que llevo a la suspensión tempral del concierto hasta las 6 de la tarde. Que la banda que menos cobró fue Quill ($375), y el que más Jimi Hendrix ($18.000).

Los que no pudieron asistir

Aparte de los artistas que participaron, la organización invitó a otras bandas para que lo hicieran y esta es la lista de los que dijeron que no: Doors, que cancelaron a última hora; Led Zeppelin que iniciaba una gira de verano; Jethro Tull cuyo líder Ian Anderson habría afirmado “que no estaba dispuesto a pasar el fin de semana con unos hippies que no se lavaban”, aunque esto no está comprobado; Tommy James and The Shondells que se encontraban en Hawaii; Bob Dylan que se mantuvo reacio a participar, aunque lo hizo dos semanas después en el Festival de la Isla de Wight; y The Moody Blues que habían aceptado una invitación para tocar en París ese fin de semana.

Otros que no pudieron asistir fueron: Jeff Beck Group (con Rod Stewart como solista), Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention y, aparentemente, se dice que hasta The Beatles, aún cuando por esas fechas ya estaban prácticamente desintegrados. Al parecer John Lennon habría propuesto participar con The Plastic Ono Band…..

The Who,  "Mi generación"

El impacto de Woodstock.

Como dice Mariano Muriesa en su blog La Comuna: “al margen del impacto social que supuso, Woodstock pasó a convertirse en leyenda por la explosión de genialidad, creatividad y fuerza que los grupos que tocaron allí desplegaron……

…. Joe Cocker se convirtió en una de las más grandes estrellas del rock de los 70 catapultado por su impresionante conciertazo de 1969, Grateful Dead, Canned Heat o Jefferson Airplane conocieron en Woodstock el momento álgido de su carrera, lanzó a la fama mundial a Santana, consagró a Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, en el ámbito del rock duro los Mountain de Leslie West y los Ten Years After de Alvin Lee rompieron con todo y el mito de Jimi Hendrix como el mejor guitarrista de todos los tiempos se cimentó en su inolvidable actuación …. ”

La música de esos tres días

Para finalizar retomamos un comentario de Jorge Luis Tineo Rendón, escrito el año pasado en su Blog “Quiero hablar”, con el que estamos totalmente de acuerdo:

“Hoy abundan los análisis - algunos más apasionados que otros - acerca de las verdaderas motivaciones de las personas que lo organizaron, así como los debates con respecto a la real trascendencia del hippismo y su significado: ¿eran verdaderos ideólogos juveniles protestando contra la insensatez de los “grandes” o simplemente se trataba de una masiva manifestación egocéntrica y hedonista de una generación ansiosa por validar sus comportamientos al margen de lo socialmente aceptado? ….

…. Lo más probable es que haya tenido de ambas cosas, pero más allá de cualquier opinión personal o de estudios descontextualizados, resulta fácil entender que en el mundo actual, mientras que asuntos como la paz y el amor continúan en una lucha permanente por no desaparecer - una lucha que, a juzgar por los desmanes de la administrción Bush o los últimos sucesos de Georgia, viene perdiendo en el balance general de acontecimientos - la música, sobre todo la que se hizo en esos tres días, aún vive entre nosotros, aún emociona, aún sorprende…”

Y ustedes ¿qué opinan? ¿Qué fue lo que más les gusto? ¿Que fue lo que menos?

Kaya & Bahagia dengan Property Syariah_ MENGAPA PROPERTY SYARIAH? Beberapa tahun terakhir ini hampir di seluruh dunia sangat marak bisnis yang berbau syariah, seperti hotel Halal, Fashion Syar_ie, Wisata Halal, hingga property syari_ah. Tak terkecuali di Indonesia pun marak kegiatan bisnis yang mengarah kepada sistem syari_ah. Hal ini perlu kita sukuri karena kesadaran masyarakat meningkat tentang pentingnya keberkahan pada sebuah bisnis dan kehidupan. Demikian pula pada kebutuhan property, masyarakat sekarang ini cenderung memilih property syariah karena dianggap lebih mudah, murah dan aman. Apa sebenarnya perbedaan antara membeli property syariah dan KPR ke bank? Berikut adalah penjelasannya secara mudah: 1. Property syariah lebih menghadirkan keberkahan dalam rumah tangga. Terhindar dari akad-akad bathil dan terhindar dari dosa riba ( dosa paling ringan riba adalah seperti seorang anak laki-laki berzina dengan ibu kandungnya ( HR. Al Hakim )) 2. Property syari_ah jauh lebih murah dibandingkan konvensional. Perhatikan perhitungan konvensional berikut ini : Harga Rp.600.000.000 di angsur 10 tahun dengan DP 30% anda harus mengeluarkan Rp.180.000.000 + Rp.18.500.000 (biaya bank dan notaris). Hutang/pinjaman setelah dikurangi DP adalah Rp.420.000.000. Dengan suku bunga 10%, angsuran Rp.7.000.000/bln selama 120 bulan, anda harus membayar Rp.840.000.000. Artinya apa? Untuk membeli rumah seharga Rp.600.000.000 Anda HARUS mengeluarkan TOTAL uang Rp. 1.038.500.000. (Rp.198.500.000 + Rp.840.000.000 ) Nah bandingkan jika Anda membeli Property syariah? Anda hanya perlu membayar harga rumah nya saja dan biaya niotaris. Dari contoh perhitungan diatas, anda berhasil menyelamatkan uang sebesar Rp.438.500.000. jadi kenyataannya anda membayar lebih 100% dari hutang anda.. sampai disini jelas ya? Normalnya, siapapun tidak mau melakukan hal tersebut jika mengerti cara perhitungannya. Property syari_ah adalah solusi masa depan bagi seluruh ummat. Sangat simple, murah, tanpa ribet, tanpa mikir angsuran panjang, tanpa membebani hidup dan keluarga. Jangan sampai salah pilih. Pilih property syari_ah yang bener-bener syar_ie. Karena belakangan ini banyak yang mengaku-ngaku property syariah, yang penting asal label syariah utk merebut pasar, tapi prakteknya? Jauh dari _syari_ah_ itu sendiri.

With this Blackberry spy software you will not be left in the dark. This computer software installs discreetly and no matter who is working with the cell phone they will not detect the cell phone monitoring software installed.

First of all I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I've had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thanks!
