The Woodstock Couple

If you don't think this story is sweet, you need a heart transplant.

There have been a lot of articles lately about the 40th anniversary of the Woodstock concert. One of the nicest things has been the story that the couple who are pictured in the now-iconic photo taken there, that was used as the cover of the Woodstock album, are still together, happily married. Nick and Bobby Ecoline, who had been dating only couple of months when they made a last-minute decision to go to the Woodstock concert. Forty years later, they are married, having raised two children who are now 29 and 30. Both are 60 years old. They still live in the area, where she works as a school nurse and he is a home inspector. They had no idea that the picture was taken until it showed up on the cover of the Woodstock album.

That IS heartwarming!

Oddly, our local CBC radio station has been interviewing people all this week who were not at Woodstock.

What a wonderful story! I worked with a guy at Sun Micro that was there. When he said he was at Woodstock, we all rolled our eyes and he produced the ticket, laminated, right out of his wallet.
