Prince went to Woodstock with his dad when he was 11

Questlove is quoted in a Guardian article about his "Summer of Soul" documentary:

"Prince said that it was his dad taking him to see Woodstock when he was 11 that made him realise his mission on this planet."

Maybe this is more widely known, I didn't know it.

The film, not the festival.

Didn't you read Prince autobiography?
There's only like 20 pages.
Shame, shame.

No way was John L Nelson getting his shoes muddy to watch some degenerate hippies pretend the human race aren't a space cancer.

Right?! lol

In 1969, John L was 53 years old. He would no more have gone to Woodstock that summer than he would have walked on the moon.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

John L to Prince would've been like "Don't get my seat all wet!"

The hypocrisy of the far-left is something else.
