I'm not one for all that "Jimi was Christ-like" stuff, but the photo on that page does look like a biblical scene dontcha think ?

SWEET PICTURE! Hail Jimi, full of grace...(lol) :wave: I wish some of the video would have been filmed from the same vantage point where the photographer took this still shot. Sometimes watching the video head shots of Jimi (not even singing) during the film is like watching soft core porn- shame on the film crew (imho). With that said- im still very greatful that the video exist (better some than none). :wave:

Are there photos from Woodstock available that depict members of his entourage? Stickels, MJ, Levine, Devon, roadies, familiar groupies, etc.
I seem to recall seeing a glimpse or two if Stickels on and around the stage at Woodstock, but what about all of his NYC friends and acquaintances?
Of his crew and usual suspects, who do we know for a fact was there during his performance? (aside from his band, of course)
I know Kramer was there but he was busy recording and there are no known photos of him there, is this correct?
Thanks in advance!

Eric Barret can be seen in the EH video, Gene whasisname roadie was he there? Several people who may have been chums are seen chatting backstage, among them a blond who looks similar to Collette Mimram? his main "love" interest at this time. I'm pretty sure that if any of these "townies" had ventured out there, they wouldn't have hung around too long.
