By the Time We Got to Woodstock captures the frenzy of this insane, wonderful, and often frightening year in glorious, blistering fashion, placing the greatest rock 'n' roll ever made against a vivid landscape of Age of Aquarius optimism, druggy hedonism, and militant indignation.

Pollock currently resides in Fairfield, CT.
