Show #41: Woodstock Rocks (Part 4)

And then it came to an end. Well, it came to an end like a boss. I’m talking about Woodstock closing out with none other than the greatest of all, Jimi Hendrix. Before he took the stage, the jams continued loud and proud into the morning of Monday, August 18th, well off schedule. So when Hendrix closed out the festival, a diehard crowd of 30,000 jammed along, while 370,000 weak sauce amateurs went home. If you’ve been at Woodstock for three days, wouldn’t you stay for two extra hours to see Jimi Hendrix? C’mon now! Anywho, overall, 32 bands destroyed the stage over three plus days, making Woodstock live on in jamstastic glory forever.

I know we had a Jam of the Week honoring Alvin Lee, but that doesn’t quite do him justice. Today was all about the bombastic guitar fury from one of Rock ‘N’ Roll’s greatest ax slingers. Though he’s mostly known for his epic performance of “I’m Going Home” at Woodstock, he was the prolific frontman of a very underrated Blues Revival band. So let’s honor him the only way I know how: By jamming to his tunes as loud as possible.
