I just got this book and it's hard to put down! As a baby boomer, I grew up to all their music, but hadn't even heard of this concert, until I heard the author on Coast to Coast AM (excellent interview)! The pictures are disturbing enough, and just the number of people that came to the concert! I'm not too far into the book, but immediately the story gives you a look into how the music and drug culture were interwoven.
