My first big concert!
I grew up in Woodstock and obviously saw a lot of music there in clubs and such as a kid, but this was my first rock concert with thousands of people. I told my mom I wanted to see the Moody Blues and we went and sat on the SPAC lawn. I was 13 years old, I guess the summer before 9th grade. (I was really into Led Zeppelin at the time but yeah they were done.) Of course they played "Knights in White Satin" but I don't remember much else about the music. What I do remember is being totally taken with the scene, all of the people and of course those strange smells. (Not so strange coming from Woodstock!) Anyway this was where it really began for me.
