Did we miss something on diversity?

You forgot someone

I’m not a review but just hoping someone connected to this movie will read this. You forgot a Musician that I can’t believe you overlooked him. It’s “ Blind Al Wilson “ of Canned Heat. He died like a month before Hendrix and then Joplin was a couple months later. I’ve done extensive research on Al Wilson and even had some e-mail contact with his sister. Al was the first. Check it out you blew it on this movie. The theme song for the movie Woodstock is the song Going down the Country by Canned heat. How in the Hell did you miss this?
