The Wanee Weekend!! The bands were incredible. Allman Brothers REALLY rocked. Steve Miller was Amazing, and Robert Plant was magical. I got right in front with a huge mass of Steve Miller fans -- so about 300 people were singing to all the old songs at the tops of their voices. It was also extremely cool to see so many 20-somethings totally get into Greg Allman, Robert Plant and Steve Miller. They will keep the legends living on!! Their moms and pops raised them well!!!
Listening to old Led Zeplin music sung by an aged and seasoned Robert Plant, was like drinking fine, aged wine or scotch.
More music details when we talk!! Going to get some of the live CDs that they were recording.
All the lead in bands and the bands performing on the secondary stages were very, very good also. So much up and coming talent.
The people were absolutely WONDERFUL!!! A crowd of 30,000 kind, sweet, warm, friendly and wonderful people!! Interesting mix. All totally earthy-type people, but probably a equal age split between people in their 20's, 30's, 40's, 50's and 60's. Five decades of people all with the same mindset -- so awesome.
The camping was great. Very non-structured -- just find a spot somewhere and pitch your tent and build your campfire!! Lots of huge oak trees for shade, so very pleasant if you wanted to take a break from the crowds and hang at the campsite.
Could have gone swimming in the Suwannee River, which has a beach access right there at the music park -- but didn't have bathing suits, oh well -- next year. We hung out there for a while anyway, met new people and watched the kids swinging from the ropes and diving in the water.
