Hilarious, behind-the-scenes anecdotes from the production of the legendary 1969 Woodstock Music Festival. In January of 1969, the authors were approached by Artie Kornfeld and Mike Lang with a plan to build a tiny recording studio in Woodstock NY. Roberts and Rosenman made a counter-proposal: produce a rock concert instead. "Making Woodstock" chronicles the next eight months as the novice producers of Woodstock lurch through catastrophes and miracles on the way to the weekend that named the Woodstock Generation. Throughout the book Roberts and Rosenman, lifelong friends and partners,don't miss an opportunity to laugh at their predicaments. Although the book is laced with irreverence, the authors are fundamentally respectful of what they built. Their eight-month journey from money to mud leaves them with a new appreciation for the counterculture and a bookful of madcap adventures.
