Paul McCartney's Biggest Mistake


Dear Rockstars,

Ever wonder who passed up the opportunity to perform at Woodstock?  Turns out there were some pretty big names who decided not to come, and missed out on making history. Don't become someone that missed out on recreating Woodstock in 2011! Open for Blood, Sweat and Tears, Tommy James and the Shondells and the Family Stone at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, home of the original Woodstock festival!  

Check out who missed the 1969 Festival:

Cancelled Acts
  • Jeff Beck Group (The band broke up in July, forcing cancellation)
  • Joni Mitchell (Joni's agent put her on "The Dick Cavett Show" instead)
  • Lighthouse (Feared that it would be a "bad scene")
  • Ethan Brown (Arrested for LSD three days before the event)

Declined Invitations
  • The Beatles (John Lennon said he couldn't get them together)
  • Led Zeppelin (Got a higher paying gig at the Asbury Park Convention Hall in New Jersey that weekend)
  • Bob Dylan (Turned it down because of his disgust of the hippies hanging around his house)
  • The Byrds (Turned it down because of a melee during their performance at the first Atlanta International Pop Festival)
  • Jethro Tull (Turned it down because they thought it wouldn't be a big deal)
  • The Moody Blues were included in the original posters as performers, but backed out after taking a gig in Paris on the same weekend.
