Cool 8/28/70 - Family at IOW!

The third Isle of Wight festival included performances from Jimi Hendrix (his last) the Doors (Jim Morrison's last U.K. appearance), Joni Mitchell, Rory Gallagher's band Taste, and. . . Family.

On this day in 1970, August 28, Family played their stint at the '70 Isle Of Wight festival and offered a nasty, violent, ferocious version of their death-rock song "The Weaver's Answer" that brought the house down. . .or would have if the concert had been held indoors!
