Bob suggested a trip to Watkins Glen (on the previous thread) which got me reminiscing...
Our thread about the Watkins Glen concert has always been, and still is, one of my favorite blog posts on this website.
The thread was originally posted in 2011. (Holy Crap... we're getting old!)
If I remember correctly, at that time, Bob had told us that his older brother had attended the concert. He shared several memories and facts.
At the time, I really didn't know anything about the concert at all, so I started digging.
The facts and statistics that I found when I started researching, were astounding. And, our "Watkins Glen" thread resulted from that research.
Here's a link to the original thread:
The facts and statistics contained there-in (regarding the show) are impressive.
I had also posted accounts from actual attendees of the show (in the comments section), which were equally impressive.
I never felt that the topic got as much attention/conversation as it deserved.
As I said, although it was off-topic, it was one of my all-time favorite threads, spawned by a conversation with one of my all-time favorite bloggers.
Check it out!
For real... if you're into stats and history regarding things like Woodstock or Haight-Ashbury... you'll definitely "dig it".
I even gave the thread a quick "facelift" for the reboot. LOL
