Legacy of Woodstock

joins The Housing Hour this week to reflect on one of our countries most iconic weekends ‘ Woodstock ’69’. Terry, Kevin, and Mark discuss the ‘Legacy of Woodstock’ and the impact of the countercultural movement.

Terry has a unique background, having grown up in the Nashville music scene. His mother, Shirley Wood, was a well known and respected country music songwriter. It was not unusual for Terry to find famous musicians in his home growing up.

The Housing Hour reached out to a festival goer and got their first-hand account:

Yes, I was at Woodstock that August in 1969. I was a college sophomore at the time. I remember our decision to go to Woodstock like it was yesterday. I was hanging out with a few of my friends at “The Coral”, a local watering hole on Philly’s Main Line on that Friday night of the concert weekend. I was freshly energized from my trip to the Atlantic City Pop Festival held less than 2 weeks prior. When Woodstock entered the conversation and the great groups that would be performing a snap decision was made. By early the next morning 4 of us were heading north on the PA Turnpike toward Bethel, NY. I recall that it was a warm, sunny day. The perfect day for a road trip – particularly in a GTO convertible with the top down. By the time we hit the NY Thruway it became apparent we were not alone. There was a steady stream of traffic and volume expanded with each mile. By the time we exited the Thruway and merged onto a 2 lane country road the traffic was slowed to a crawl, but honestly, no one seemed to mind. The parade in of itself was a sight to behold: Vans, Microbuses, campers, vehicles painted with all colors and patterns imaginable. American Flags that were in dayglow colors, repurposed school buses, motorcycles and pickup trucks – all loaded with concertgoers! It was when the traffic came to a complete halt, about 4 miles from the venue that we decided to bail on the car. We found a field where I could safely park my car away from the masses and joined in the march. The crowd was massive and like nothing I’d ever seen. No one seemed pushy or annoyed by the press of the people all around them. We all simply merged and moved  forward. By the time we arrived at the entrance the gates were non-existent. In fact there  were no fences or anyone to take tickets and all I could see was a sea of people. I could hear Carlos Santana in the distance. We continued walking toward the music for what may have been another mile before we actually reached our destination and heard that the concert was now “free”. The road was muddy and food vendors parked along the way had mostly closed, having sold out after the first day! I recall being thankful that we brought food & drink in our backpacks. I recall walking past a makeshift Red Cross field hospital that seemed well- organized & pretty low-key. I also recall somehow eventually ending up near the stage in amazement & seeing concertgoers that looked like they had been in a war zone – filthy, many covered in mud and still wet from Friday night’s rainstorm. I recall no one seemed to care & neither did I – we were all together there to enjoy this great music & have a great time!

I could not believe our luck at finding a spot at rear stage left – right under a catwalk where performers walked from the trailers across to the stage. We could both see the performers on stage & hear all of the music. Location, Location, Location & it was not long before we got to know everyone around us – Incredible experience. Canned Heat came on as the sun was setting. They were followed by Mountain, The Grateful Dead and CCR. Credence Clearwater Revival was one of my favorites so I was in my glory. Janis Joplin was followed by Sly & the Family Stone. By then I think it was after 4 am. I think I maybe got 2 hours sleep before The Jefferson Airplane came on & Gracie Slick woke us all up with, “Breakfast for 300,000!”.

During the music, everyone was engaged and euphoric (in more ways than one). It was only after Gracie & the group departed the stage across the catwalk that the massive reality of the event came into view. It would be several hours before the next group would come on – We decided to see if we could grab a spot at the top of the hill as a change of pace but realized pretty quickly this was a bad decision. By the time we did finally reach the top of the hill there was no place to sit. Even if a space could be found you couldn’t see the stage as it was literally standing room only.

So there we were. It was Sunday before noon. We were at the top of the hill and considered options. It was hot. It smelled. I don’t need to mention the thought of portable toilets that crews could not get near to service. No food – we had eaten all we had by Saturday night. And trash everywhere. We looked at each other and unanimously decided, “Time to go”. Well, not everyone. One of our group had run into friends who were staying – he opted to stay and ride home with them.

My car, alone in a field the day before, was now surrounded by a sea of vehicles. I was thankfully able to navigate it through the maze and back onto that country road that led to home. Exhausted with no regrets.

So much has been written about this event – my notes don’t include the kind of stories or insight that hasn’t been written before. Even though 50 years have passed I remain in awe and have to smile at the thought of it all. Nothing was like it ever before or ever since. Just think about it – over 400,000 people together for 3 days under conditions that most people today wouldn’t tolerate for an hour.

Woodstock’s theme was Love & Peace. There’s something to that.

David Crosby had it right: “Love is better than hatred, Peace is better than war”.

Thanks Mark, for asking me to share my Woodstock experience. It gave me an opportunity to put some thought into both my recollections and how much life has changed for us all.

All the best

Terry Adams: Estate Planning

Terry Adams,

terry adamsAdams Law Firms,

joins The Housing Hour this week to discuss the importance of Estate Planning. Estate Planning is the process of determining and arranging the wishes of an individual and the smooth transfer of their property accumulated over an entire lifespan. It helps remove the uncertainty and critical care decisions that occur when a loved one becomes ill. Regardless of the simplicity or complexity of your estate, everyone needs a plan. Estate Planning helps to focus the person’s goals to assure the best stewardship decisions when it comes to probate, taxes, wills, trusts and elder laws.

Meet Terry

U.S. Senate Candidate Terry Adams

I am Terry Adams, veteran, entrepreneur, and attorney. My wife Phillis Burnett and I together own and operate a small business in Knoxville, in addition I practice law, an entrepreneur representing entrepreneurs.

My professional life began with public service. I joined the Navy reserves on the early enlistment program while I was still in High School, to serve my country, and help pay for college. I graduated from the University of Tennessee with the help of the Montgomery GI Bill and ultimately went to law school.

My mother was a songwriter in Nashville, she wrote the song “Cry, Cry, Cry” for Connie Smith in her heyday. When music didn’t pay the bills she cleaned office buildings, worked in hospitals, and ultimately worked as a secretary at the Tennessee Law Enforcement Training Academy, where she retired. My father was a US Air Force veteran. After getting out of the service, he pumped gasoline and raised me, for several years in a one bed room apartment in Nashville.

I am proud to have lived and worked in the three grand divisions of Tennessee: Memphis, Nashville, and Knoxville. My upbringing is about as far from Washington D.C. as you can get but I believe a little Tennessee common sense is what we need in our nation’s capital today.

Habitat for Humanity provides a hand up – not a hand out.

There is a common misconception that Habitat for Humanity homes are given away to people in need. But the fact is, we sell our homes to families at no profit, with zero-percent interest loans, in order to make them affordable for people who cannot otherwise afford a house with a conventional mortgage.

And our homeowners are heavily invested in our process. Each family must complete 500 hours of sweat equity before moving into their new home. These 500 hours are accrued in classes that help them learn how to budget their money and become a responsible homeowner.

Since 1985, we have helped more than 470 families realize the dream of homeownership. We invite you to read more about how the program works and share in the successes of our families whose lives have been changed by a simple, decent and affordable place to live.

Knoxville Habitat for Humanity builds and sells single-family homes to qualified low and very-low income families at no profit and with no interest charged.  The houses are built through funds provided by Covenant Partner groups, who also provide most of the volunteer labor.

Knoxville Habitat for Humanity families are selected on the basis of a need for decent, affordable housing; the ability to pay a 15, 20, 25 or 30-year, no interest mortgage; and their willingness to partner with us.

Our families are selected by our Board of Directors and required to pay $1,500 in closing costs and contribute 500 hours of sweat equity. These closing costs and their monthly mortgage payments go into a revolving “Fund for Humanity” that is used to build more homes.
