Perhaps most of all it is distinctly American, a plainspoken testament to the dignity, hopes and aspirations of ordinary working p... [Read More about Bob Seger]

Festivals today are a huge business. As events like Coachella, Bonnaroo, SXSW, and Outside Lands pop up in cities around the country it is hard to imagine these outdoor shows as descendants of 1969's seminal Woodstock Music & Art Fair. One of the most memorable moments of Woodstock was Jimi Hendrix's iconic performance of "The Star-Spangled Banner," but before amazing audiences at Max Yasgur's upstate New York farm, Hendrix set his guitar on fire two years earlier at the Monterey Pop Festiv...
