Letters to the Editor - Dec. 19, 2016

Woodstock

This is the first time I have written to you. An error of this magnitude cannot go unrectified.

In the December 12, 2016 edition of the Woodinville Weekly, p. 10, you published  an article titled “Did you know . . . Woodinville had its ‘Woodstock’ event.” I read the article with interest, having been previously regaled with stories about this event. The reference to the band “The Whos” [sic] was comical; indeed, they are one of the most overrated bands in rock and roll history, in my opinion, second only to The Doors. Which leads me to the main reason for writing:  I was shocked that your editorial staff did not catch the glaring musical error in the following portion of the article:

“The crowd was tired but happy by that time, but electricity filled the air as vocalist Robert Plant and lead guitarist Jimmy Page worked their magic. The crowd went wild when The Doors concluded their set with an encore of ‘Communication Breakdown,’ a memory those in attendance won’t forget.” 

The Doors could not pull off “Communication Breakdown” in their wildest dreams. But Led Zepplin could. Check it out.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnfgRfhdpeQ  Wish I was there in ’69.
