    I call bull on most of these people lip synching (aside from Waters who does). Yes' vox were live everytime I've seeen them, as were Ian Anderson's (painfully so). Journey threw out one singer for lip-synching and got a guy who doesn't need to.

    Roy hologram plays with alive orchestra. Tupac Hologram performed with alive Dr. Dre at Coachella. Upcoming Zappa thing will mix real people with vintage Frank.

    Apparently, although Woodstock first appeared in Charlie Brown a couple of years earlier, Charles Schultz didn't name the character until after the festival, inspired by the bird in the Woodstock logo.

    Another interesting fact, originally the character was female but Schultz reassigned the gender to male when he assigned the name...

    You know what would be interesting? Organizing a festival completely equipped with vintage gear!
    Old amplifiers, old microphones, old audio mixing desks, old food wagons etc. Only classic rock bands and fans allowed.
    No access for internet and cellphones in the whole area, and the staff would use walkie-talkies for communication.
    And no sponsors' signs if possible. That would be like time travelling back to the 1970s for the next couple days!

    I never said that Yes was. I said MOST are. However, they are still ripping people off byy calling themselves YES. Howe can't play at the right tempo anymore and the other 4 have nothing to do with the music they are playing. Why not call this band the Steve Howe band instead? $$$$$$$$ In reality you didn't see Yes in the last few years just a band calling themselves that.

    As I understand it, Caitlin Jenner is the face of the company bringing the mud in and it's all going to be re-cycled through a Kardashian spin-off makeup company for it's restorative properties.

    I'll bet they show footage during breaks.

    It's not a hippie event, the hippies grew up and started corporations. Or croaked.

    With all due respect, I don't want to argue semantics, but you mentioned Yes in the same sentence as lip syncing so by association you imply they may lip sync which is not true. If you know they don't lip sync why mention them?

    I also will not argue whether I saw the real Yes as the two bands I saw, Howe version or Anderson/Wakeman version, call themselves Yes so that is why I referenced them. By your reasoning, the only real Yes band is the original band that did not include Howe, Wakeman, and White as they joined later.

    There are very few classic rock bands that still have the original members so where do you draw the line? Are the Stones not the Stones because they only have 3 original members? Is Deep Purple not Deep Purple? Members come and go so I accept the bands for who they are now and not who they were 40 years ago.

    I am not saying replacements are never a good thing, but if the music they are playing on stage is not music they had anything to do with then they are a cover band...4 of the 5 guys on stage with Howe had nothing to do with the music they play on stage...its your money and time

    Actually when I saw Howe's version of Yes, Chris Squire was still alive and playing, I enjoyed the concert but not as much as the recent Anderson/Rabin. and Wakeman show.

    But too each his own. Everyone has different taste.

    Well the festival is cancelled. I have to say it I am glad, the original was a happy accident that can't be recreated.

    Their reasons stated in the article were pretty on point.

    Music Festivals are great ... any festival called Woodstock is almost certainly bound to fail, because the original (as wonderful as it was in many ways) was essentially a happy accident, that in some respects has been blown out of proportion.

    I would like to know what exactly killed it. I am amazed they could not pull it off. After three previous festivals under the Woodstock name, I would think the learning curve ascended.

    The original is a moment in time that most likely will never happen again. Yea, a happy accident never to be repeated no matter how many plans to try to recapture that moment.
