"Momentous . . . [a] thoroughly entertaining tale [and] very human story."(Publishers Weekly)
"Comic and creative . . . [from] the man who serendipitously brought the Woodstock Music and Arts Festival to Bethel, NY, in the summer of 1969 . . . recommended."(Library Journal)
"The true story of Elliot Tiber, hero of the original Woodstock Festival . . . [a] snapshot of America Yesterday."(The New York Post)
"Gleefully candid and often hilarious . . . the story of a middle-aged gay man challenging bigotry, intolerance and the rural peace of Upstate New York's residents for the legal rights to sing, dance, and make love not war."(Foreword Reviews)

When it comes to his "involvement" in Woodstock, the author is clearly taking liberties with the truth. I should have known when I read the disclaimer at the beginning-it seams Tiber doesn't know the difference between exaggeration and outright fabrication. Yes, he made the phone call which ultimately resulted in a venue for Woodstock (of course not at all how he describes it)but it's clear he's not much more than a bystander. It's actually pretty funny because in the Mike Lang book The Road to Woodstock, Tiber is only mentioned 3 times,2 of which are not very flattering.If I'd read the Lang book first I never would have bought this one. Don't waste your money on this one.
Along the way he has some WILD times with the likes of Robert Mapplethorpe, Marlon Brando and Wally Cox!!
What an amazing time he had and we have by reading this fun, fast paced book.
He got a front row seat to one of the most exciting summer's of love! We get a second row seat by reading!!
