The summer of love

It was the sixties and hundreds of thousands of people gathered for a 3-day, open-air rock concert featuring a stage full of rock n’ roll legends. And while there was no tainted red rope licorice, there was enough to make it this week’s Stories of Atlanta.

Lance Russell is an Atlanta-based filmmaker and media communicator who, for over three decades, has been entrusted by clients to tell their stories. A seasoned producer with an innate ability to cut to the heart of the matter, Lance’s instincts are tailor-made for today’s “media bite” culture. Brief, poignant and always entertaining, Lance’s current passion is bringing Atlanta’s colorful and inspiring past to life with his “rest of the story” style video series, Stories of Atlanta. “History’s best communicators,” says Lance, “have always been storytellers. It’s in our DNA. ‘Once upon a time’ is how we got to where we are now.”

    I was there ……..with my buddy David from college. We plopped down in the steaming infield of the Atlanta Raceway at Hampton after dragging an ice chest seemingly for miles from where I had parked my old Chevy Biscayne. The second (and last ) Atl Pop Festival was held the next summer at Byron Ga. near Macon. Unfortunately I couldn't make that one…..my presence had been requested at Ft Bragg, N.C, for the summer of 1970.Report
