Coming soon: Woodstock, the book
New York, June 19: Veteran rock deejay Pete Fornatale has penned a book on Woodstock Festival 40 years after the legendary rockfest shook fans all over the world.
Fornatale attempts to segregate fiction from "400,000 versions of the truth" in his Back to the Garden: The Story of Woodstock.
But the disc spinner, however, said a definitive book on the music festival, billed as An Aquarian Exposition, could probably never be inked.
"Woodstock is an elephant. Perhaps even a big pink one, depending on what you were ingesting back then," the New York Post quoted him as saying.
Thirty-two of the best-known musicians of the day appeared for the festival held from August 15 to August 18 in 1969 in front of nearly half a million concertgoers.
Other than being widely regarded as one of the greatest moments in popular music history, it was listed on Rolling Stone`s 50 Moments That Changed the History of Rock and Roll.
The event has previously been captured in a successful 1970 documentary movie, Woodstock, and Joni Mitchell`s song Woodstock.
