Everybody knows who played at Woodstock, but this week's show features artists who declined the invite to play. Read the full description.

Rs_logo_small Before anyone knew how big Woodstock would be, it was just a simple concert being organized on a pig farm with a bunch of hippies.  Some really big bands probably regretted looking at things that way in hindsight.  Find out who turned it down, and find out who was set to play and billed but for whatever reasons could or did not attend.  Artists featured include Bob Dylan, the Moody Blues and Led Zeppelin.
