A “Woodstock” movie moment

Even though Ang Lee’s “Taking Woodstock” isn’t exactly taking the movie world by storm, I thought I’d take the opportunity to present one of the most famed moments from Michael Wadleigh’s┬ádocumentary, “Woodstock.”

Even though I’m not a fan of lengthy guitar solos in my pop music, there are exceptions — and most of them probably come courtesy of Jimi Hendrix. I’m not sure the appeal here is entirely musical by its nature, but its definitely powerful and historic. Whatever “soul” is, I don’t think any conventional guitar hero ever had half as much as Hendrix did.
