Duke Devlin Pops Up Again in Opening Coverage of Woodstock Museum

Okay, we promised to layoff the Woodstock Museum coverage late last week, but sometimes we lie. We do it because we love you and don’t want to offend your delicate nature. But we promise to keep things quick, because we know you’re probably as ready to move on as we are. First up comes some interesting coverage by the Globe and Mail of this weekend’s opening of the Museum at Bethel Woods, the many-millions-of-dollars new exhibit space built to honor the 1969 music festival. The review: pretty corporate and they decided to completely skip over some of the very minor things involved in that Woodstock weekend: drugs and sex. Our favorite quote: “So what are we to glean from the fact that this official history of the Sixties seems to have been edited by Disney?” Second up comes a look at the opening from the Chicago Tribune, who stuck pretty close to the press release and doesn’t offer up much opinion, but does have some interesting bits about building the place. But the best part: true to form, they both prominently feature one Mr. Duke Devlin, which we found pretty funny, as will you too, should you want to go back and review our coverage of the coverage from last week.
