They're the most famous couple of the most famous rock concert in history - the scruffy guy and gal who stood huddled in a muddy quilt in a muddy field at Woodstock. Their image was captured forever, first on the cover of Life magazine, then on the cover of the Woodstock album and now in the Library of Congress.
They're Nick and Bobbi Ercoline of the northern Orange County hamlet of Pine Bush. She's a 59-year-old nurse at Pine Bush Elementary School who collects food and clothes for needy children. He's a 60-year-old retired business agent for a carpenter's union who does lead and farm worker housing inspections for Orange County. The parents of two sons - Matthew, 30, and Luke, 27 - live in a 10-room home on a wooded road dotted with old farms and new houses. An American flag, a statue of the Virgin Mary and a tongue-in-cheek "Hippies Use Back Door" sign greet visitors out front. The famous photo hangs on a wall in a kitchen with shiny wood floors and black granite countertops.
