Spirit of '69 Woodstock Alive At Falcon Ridge

Chris Smith, Billboard, 14 August 1999

BLAME IT ON the heat. Blame it on poor security. Blame it on the cause/effect relationship between artist persona and audience behavior. Blame it on Joseph Campbell's argument that children are no longer invested in the myths of their parents but are forced to create violent, anarchic myths of their own. Blame it on the availability of firewood.
