Both Fogerty and Daltrey performed at the Woodstock Music and Arts Festival back in 1969 on the grounds of Bethel Woods.

Fogerty is best known for his time as singer and guitarist (1967-1972) for Creedence Clearwater Revival in which he was also the main songwriter. 1968 saw the release of the band’s self-titled debut album and their first single “Suzie Q”.

Rolling Stone magazine ranked John Fogerty number 40 on their list of 100 Greatest Guitarists and 72 on their list of 100 Greatest Singers. Creedence Clearwater Revival was one of the few bands to appear at Woodstock that had already achieved significant success on the Billboard charts the time.

At 5am on the Sunday of Woodstock just before Jefferson Airplane took the stage, The Who played their rock opera "Tommy", a performance that would become legendary. The Who formed out of London, England in 1964 with the classic lineup featuring Roger Daltrey on vocals, Pete Townshend on guitar, bassist John Entwistle, and drummer Keith Moon. They are considered to be one of the most influential rock bands of all time, with over 100 million records sold worldwide. Hit singles from The Who include “I Can’t Explain”, “My Generation”, “Substitute”, “Pinball Wizard”, “Baba O’Riley” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again”.The Who were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990.
