14. Same here.....

I was a Junior. We all gathered in the campus Rathskeller that evening to plan demonstrations. Time sure does fly. We certainly lived during interesting, and very, very strange, times.

15. They really need to add Neil. But,

they also need Jackson Browne, Rage Against the Machine, and especially have John Fogarty sing Deja Vu (All Over Again).

Hell, just bring together the surviving performers from Woodstock and the No Nukes shows.
