This weekend marks the 40th anniversary of Woodstock, popular music’s most legendary music festival. The event concluded a decade of significant musical, artistic and political change, which Mikal Gilmore relives in Stories Done. From Johnny Cash, The Beatles and Bob Marley to The Doors, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd, Gilmore examines how the slate of musical monoliths helped shape the ’60s, including the dark side of drugs and illness. Supported by sketches of a nation-changing political landscape and literary developments driven by writers like Hunter S. Thompson, Stories Done isolates and indulges in an incomparable decade.
