Críticas:

"Invaluable.[Lang] wraps up his cinematic reminiscing by taking a seminal thread from Woodstock's history-Jimi Hendrix's breathtaking interpretation of The Star Spangled Banner-and linking its poignancy to what some have called the 21st century Woodstock moment: the day Barack Obama became the first black president." -- USA Today

Totally rocking...what elevates this book above the level of most rock memoirs is the inclusion of voices other than Lang s including scenesters and key Woodstock players like Jimi Hendrix, Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, Jerry Garcia .Well-written, informative and tons of fun. --Kirkus Reviews

Invaluable [Lang] wraps up his cinematic reminiscing by taking a seminal thread from Woodstock s history Jimi Hendrix s breathtaking interpretation of The Star Spangled Banner and linking its poignancy to what some have called the 21st century Woodstock moment: the day Barack Obama became the first black president. --USA Today

The shelf of books about Woodstock is groaning, but Lang s is the best fly-on-the-wall account, tantamount to having had a backstage pass to an iconic event. --New York Post

Lang, one of Woodstock s organizers, provides details about how the production was put together and kept running. His account is interspersed with interviews with performers and others, including, perhaps most interestingly, Hugh Romney, aka Wavy Gravy, of the Hog Farm, whose group provided order, reassurance and, as we know, granola. --New York Times Book Review, Paperback Row

At Woodstock I saw a collective adventure representing something that still holds true today. When the Berlin Wall came down, Woodstock was there. When Mandela was liberated, Woodstock was in there. When we celebrated the year 2000, Woodstock was in there. Woodstock is still every day. --Carlos Santana

Reading this inimitable account of how Woodstock really came to passmakes the Manhattan Project seem like whippin up one of my mom s custard pies....[This book] he and Holly George-Warrenwill knock you out and once again make you wish that you were there. --Terry Stewart, President of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum

There are plenty of juicy tidbits in The Road to Woodstock, starting with the compelling opening of Lang sharing his backstage view of Hendrix s sizzling performance at the rain-soaked end of the festival. --Richmond Times-Dispatch
