Taking Woodstock's Elliot Tiber on not getting there
Elliot Tiber was working at a run-down motel that his crazy family ran in Bethel, NY, when he heard that the organizers of the Woodstock concert had lost their festival permit. As luck would have it, he had a music festival permit. That stroke of luck changed American history and Tiber’s life. His memoir Taking Woodstock served as the basis for Ang Lee’s new film of the same. We sat down with Tiber to talk about his life, the movie about his life, and everything in between.
