Legends of Woodstock
Michael Lang, the Woodstock Festival’s organizer, above, and Henry Diltz, the festival’s official photographer, below, celebrated the groundbreaking countercultural fest’s 40th anniversary last Thursday with a book signing and reception at Morrison Hotel Gallery, at 313 Bowery. The Lovin’ Spoonful’s John Sebastian was on hand, and there was a slideshow of Woodstock photos with a monologue by Walter Cronkite reporting on the festival.
