About the Author:

Baron Wolman began the music phase of his photographic career in 1967, as the very first photographer for the new Rolling Stone magazine. He went on to capture the 60s pop rock explosion, including: Janis Joplin, the Rolling Stones, the Who, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan amongst many more. "I see myself as a kind of voyeur ... I'm happiest when I'm invisible and watching. I just love to watch. I'm a chameleon and can adapt myself to the situation, and that, to me, is one of the gifts that I was given naturally, and that's how you get honest pictures."

From Publishers Weekly:

The landmark 1969: the first year of the Nixon presidency; the year in which the U.S. death toll in Vietnam exceeded that of the Korean War; the year of Chappaquidick--and the year of Woodstock, the three-day music festival that Margaret Mead reportedly called "the best-planned and most significant gathering of young people in the history of the world." Makower, a freelance journalist, attempts the formidable task of interpreting Woodstock by setting it squarely within its historical context and interviewing scores of participants, among them musicians, neighbors (both the hostile and the amicable) and employees at the food concessions . From the first tentative conversations between its four producers (Michael Lang, JoelRosenman, John Roberts and Artie Kornfeld) to the lingering aftermath--the grounds, for a weekend the third-largest city in New York, were afterward declared a disaster area--from the interminable security and lavatory arrangements to the "freak-out" tents and the lawsuits from locals, Woodstock comes alive here, even if the music itself seems almost incidental to the backstage dramas.
