Woodstock '69 Artist Payments: Jimi Hendrix Reportedly Tops the List With $18,000 Fee
Today in rock archives, we bring you a list of reported earnings from the iconic Woodstock '69 festival.

Attended by a massive crowd of 400,000, the event still stands out as one of the most prominent festivals in rock history.

Woodstock '69 featured performances of such rock icons as Jimi Hendrix, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin, Johnny Winter, Ten Years After and many more.

The list below shows a set of figures that the artists have reportedly earned for performing at the event. The times were different and the festival did take place over 45 years ago, but these earnings still might strike you as somewhat minuscule.

Anyhow, Jimi is believed to be on top with $18,000, followed by $15,000 of Blood, Sweat and Tears as the only other act to fetch over $10,000.

CCR and Joan Baez have earned $10,000, while guitar icon Santana made merely $750. Late great Joe Cocker isn't too far up with $1,375. Check out the full list below.
