played Woodstock.

The original Mothers were on tour that Summer, and were playing in Montreal during the Woodstock weekend in August 1969. In fact, Ten Years After had opened for the Mothers on at least one date of the tour.

I'd love to know whether FZ was even contacted about playing there.

^he never would have done it. woodstock had some great performances, but what it is commonly accepted to be has been blown out of proportion...god, you'd have thought it was some cosmic event that changed the world...seems more like a bunch of people laying around in the mud, chiefin' and fucking each other. The Who's set (what footage we have of it), Sly Stone's set (which FZ, upon seeing the film, called "the greatest mass manipulation i ever have seen), and Jimi's set were all fantastic.

I recall reading somewhere that Zappa and the Mothers were asked to play Woodstock but turned it down, but I can't remember where exactly.

Gigged with Return to Forever, and H Hancock, with the first Headhunters line up, would have been great on chameleon.

It's a shame that Zappa never realeased any show from the 70 New Mothers band (Collins, Dunbar, Mundi, Sherwood, Ian Underwood, Jeff Simmons)

It's a shame that in any on the Zappa's dvds, there's no entire show. And songs are cutted in the middle, with interviews. (Baby Snakes, DHBIMusic)
