Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock. Several weeks before the Woodstock Festival in August 1969 I was hired by the producer, Michael Lang, at the suggestion of my old friend Chip Monck, to document the building of the stage and all the setting-up activity. This segued into the concert itself where I had an all-access pass to the stage, and slept in my station wagon behind it. Although many of my original shots have been lost along the way, this is one of a few I have saved.
