I missed the first one back in 1967 as I was not born yet.

The event was totally far out!
I was amazed at how many younger people showed up to the event. At first I thought it was only going to be aging hippies but it was more like a family event with people of all ages. An estimated 50,000+ attended. The place was packed an there was plenty of marijuana to go around. The weather was perfect, the sounds and smells were teriffic.  Cool
The highlights of the show was performances by Jeffereson Airplane and Moby Grape. Other cool acts by Quicksilver Messenger Service, Commander Cody and of course Wavy Gravy.
Grace Slice didn't show up but they do have a younger lead vocalist that can sing better than Grace ever did.

THough this was nota political event, the only presents of politics was Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul. I am glad that they showed up to exposed their campaign's theme of freedom and individual rights.

If you're going to San Francisco
Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
If you're going to San Francisco
You're gonna meet some gentle people there

For those who come to San Francisco
Summertime will be a love-in there
In the streets of San Francisco
Gentle people with flowers in their hair

All across the nation such a strange vibration
People in motion
There's a whole generation with a new explanation
People in motion people in motion

For those who come to San Francisco
Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
If you come to San Francisco
Summertime will be a love-in there

If you come to San Francisco
Summertime will be a love-in there.

Groovy pix. I don't see many almost 60-something in the crowd.

Any sighting of Jerry Garcia? Without dropping acid that is.  Wink


Other cool acts by Quicksilver Messenger Service

How long did the "Who Do You Love" jam last?

About 35 minutes.  Smile

Members of The Doors were there too.

Can't possibly be as filthy as Senator Craig's Brokeback Ranch.  rotfl
