Joel Rosenman says he was so immersed in producing the event he didn’t know people, “were having the time of their life.”
As Jimi Hendrix and The Who performed, Rosenman says concertgoers banded together to cope with food shortages, rain and more. He helped conceive the concert in rural New York. It drew some 500,000 people.
He says screening a new PBS documentary helped him realize that adversity can foster a sense of community, not hinder it.
The program, “Woodstock: Three Days that Defined a Generation,” will air Aug. 6 as part of PBS’ “American Experience” series.
