The Pied Piper of Woodstock: Artie Kornfeld, class of 1960
Artie, who lives in Florida, is still rocking and promoting his various enterprises. Yes, he was the co-creator and promoter of Woodstock and the writer of hit songs such as the Cowsills' classic The Rain, the Park and Other Things, and Jan and Dean's Deadman's Curve, among others. Artie and your blogger were friends and teammates in high school and have kept in touch over the years.
His song The Rain, the Park and Other Things is still awesome. See link: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=3809453614493997014#
