There is nothing uglier to look at than aging hippies from the 60's. Their souls were rotted then and they are still rotted. Now it shows through their skin.

Aging Rolling Stones are getting pretty ugly.But give some of those hippies a break.Ringo and Paul don't look too bad Arlo Guthrie and Jimmy Page are gray but look ok.Grace Slick looks real bad.David Crosby is looking ok not all got real ugly but wait until U2 get in their 70's they are going to be real ugly.

Hendrix and Santana were the true champions of Woodstock, not all 60's rockers were hippies.
I guess anyone who wears jeans and grows a beard is a hippie,hmmm .

You don't know what you are talking about SANTANA-CROSBY STILLS and NASH-HENDRIX-Arlo Guthrie this people didn't suck like the lame bands we have now.Woodstock had some of the best of the sixties except for The Beatles and Rolling Stones.I think the Who were at Woodstock.Ritchie Havens and Joan Baez I could do without but the others still rock great like Carlos Santana.

So, how many beauty contests have YOU won. I don't know about you, but when I listen to their music, I don't usually see their faces. It doesn't matter what they look like - it's the music that counts. Get over yourself. I would bet you're no prize.

Well I'm prettier than you Baby.You are right it's the music that matters not the looks but The Rolling Stones have got the attitude and that's what makes them cool even today.I never entered a beauty contest how about you?I bet your no prize either.If I die then you will be the ugliest left so be careful lol.

Way back when the Band played on ... He ll, the encores lasted longer than the actual show,,,,and you rerely got bothered for a little hanky panky... Bad enough the sixties and seventies are long gone, but the politics even got in the way with concerts these days... Not fun like it used to be !!

I've actually been in 3 and won two of them. In the third one, the winner was the daughter of the town's mayor -'nuff said. If you die, no doubt the whole world will be a more beautiful place.

Grand Dads play awesome Music. It doesn't matter if they look old. Charismatic people always carry the charisma with them. It's no surprise we are listening to them even today, they haven't lose their charms nor their talent of course.

MASTER musicians that era produced - set a standard that was to be followed by musicians since.

No words were necessary - their instrumentation spoke volumns.

Beautiful voices like Baez, Collins - the RAW emotional syle of Joplin or Cocker - singers strived to present themselves artistically as opposed to competing with each other.

The poetry of Joni Mitchell - the great stories of the Band - proclaimed love and passion of Simon and Taylor - Stills and Collins - Clapton's Layla - there were so MANY different parts of the era musically.
