Krassner on Woodstock

Paul Krassner reminisces about Woodstock, Abbie, Owsley acid, Pete Townsend and a bunch of other shit.

My favorite moment at the festival was Jimi Hendrix’s startling rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” His guitar wailing of our national anthem brought me to tears. It was a wordless version of what I interpreted to mean, “It’s not that we hate America, it’s that we feel the American dream has been betrayed, and we will live our alternative.” My least favorite moment was when I discovered that my new yellow leather fringe jacket had been stolen from the Movement City tent.

That yellow fringe jacket is somewhere. I want to know who has it.
Where is Krassner’s yellow fringe jacket?!?!?!
