An Interview with Mike Greenblatt July 18, 2019
DIFFERENT TEXT INTERVIEW FROM THE AUDIO
MG: Paul isn’t the type of editor to fight with. He was usually right. This being my first book at 68, I chafed against some of his edits but he did a miraculous job with the pictures, the lay-out, and, yes, making my story more readable. Sure, he took out my JFK quote (Kennedy predicted the rise of the counter-culture in his 1961 inaugural speech), the details of the encounter I had with the naked girl in the lake, Joplin trying to seduce Springsteen and a few other tidbits I liked, but that was his job. And he did it masterfully.
MG: It’s not easy when everything can be had at the flick of a switch. Still, the tactile sensation of holding a good hard-cover under your arm wherever you go is something I’ve done all my life and taught my kids early on and will never go out of style
MG: Well, it was a few hundred people back, truth be told, but considering there were about 499,800 behind us, it was like the front row, for sure. And no, Woodstock was a cosmic accident that could never be replicated.
JV: Has the mega concert become redundant after Monterey Pop, Isle of Wight, Altamont and Woodstock?
JV: Did you attend Mar Y Sol or any of the Isle of Wight events to compare them to Woodstock?
JV: Or maybe a better question, have you seen a current Isle of Wight to compare to Woodstock and how the times are different (...or in the world of music, have they stayed the same?)
MG: I have not.
MG: Because Quill was totally underwhelming and sounded like a bunch of guys banging on pots.
JV: What do you think of the $800.00 box?
JV: Your timing couldn't be better - have you thought of working with Rhino to have some kind of media tour for the phenomenal boxed set and your book?
JV: What would you think of a virtual reality Woodstock concert in 2069 for the hundredth anniversary where a supercomputer can recreate the event with original voices, holograms and even audience members like you from the film to interact with people?
Thanks for your time, Mike
