Woodstock turned 50 this past week and the Stern Show celebrated the momentous occasion by looking back at a few of Howard’s many interviews with some of the music legends who performed at or attended the seminal music festival.

From the Who’s frontman Roger Daltrey to two members of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, a variety of artists have opened up to Howard and his listeners about all aspects of Woodstock, detailing everything from the intrusiveness of onstage cameras to how they met future bandmates in the crowd. In one case, a five-time Grammy winner performed a cover in the Stern Show studios of a track Joni Mitchell famously penned about the festival.
