One of the most iconic performances in the film about the illustrious Woodstock Festival in August 1969 is without a doubt the performance of the British band Ten Years After. Their "Going Home (by Helicopter)" is forever set in the musical memories of a whole generation of pop and rock enthusiasts.
Co-founder Leo Lyons experienced all the highlights, side by side with frontman Alvin Lee (died in 2013). After disagreements at the start of this century, Alvin left, and was succeeded by Joe Gooch (also present this evening). At the beginning of 2014, both Gooch and Lyons left Ten Years After, and founded Hundred Seventy Split, while the remaining original members Ric Lee and Chick Churchill continued under the old familiar name.
This evening, the band will perform the entire set as played on Woodstock. Special in itself, since some of those recordings did not come out well, due to technical defects to both images and sound, so only Going Home ended up in the film. TYA is more than just Going Home, other beautiful songs from the band include Love Like A Man, Hear Me Calling, Religion, and the equally wonderful I’d Love To Change The World.
