Nearly two decades ago, one of the most unlikely supergroups took the stage for their first performance and by the time they finished their set of originals, the jam audience was already asking for more.

What better way to celebrate the first rock n' roll festival, than to enjoy the festivities of the greatest rock n' roll festival.
