    well, not having been at woodstock, but having been at Live Aid, I'd still say there's no question that Woodstock had the greater legacy. Woodstock helped define an era... Live Aid was just a cool party.

    Woodstock, naturally.

    It is THE standard from which all other mass entertainment events of this sort are measured.

    Same here. I was at the London Live Aid, and it was great fun. Also, it did raise a lot of money for a worthy cause. However, much of that money was wasted or siphoned off by corrupt regimes in Africa, and African famine happens almost every year so it didn't really have a legacy IMO. Pity.

    I'm stunned, but then I forget sometimes that American news is exactly that.

    Woodstock was entertainment, live aid was a cause.

    It's media hype, the news that is.
