They became the most famous couple at the most famous rock concert in history - and they live in our area.    Meet Bobbie & Nick Ercoline of Pine Bush, NY.

 

2 ORDINARY KIDS FROM PINE BUSH BECAME FAMOUS FOR A 1969 WOODSTOCK PHOTO

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.

Debra - What a neat story. I've seen that image so many times I almost feel like I know them. I wanted to be a part of it, but Uncle Sam had other ideas. Thank goodness the entire event was captured on film, it's a true piece of rock and roll history.

Great update picture.  In addition to their appearance I wonder what else has changed?

Mike-I thought it was so interesting too when I saw it in the paper last week.  How many times do you ever see someone in an old magazine photo like that and get to see who it really is years later?

Al & Peg-Yes they must have some terrific stories....definitely not for the paper tho!

Sharon-Me too!  Must be a neat "family fun fact."

Richard-Hmmm....interesting thought!

I just heard yesterday they are releasing 30 more songs from those 3 days from some of the biggest groups of the time. I can't wait for the album to come out!
