MELANIE with guitarist Beau Jarred Schekeryk
, who became the voice of an era in one magical instant onstage at Woodstock, inspired the first panorama of candles and cigarette lighters ever raised at a concert that rainy night. That, in turn, moved the young singer to write Lay Down (Candles In The Rain), which sold more than one million copies in 1970 and prompted Billboard, Cashbox, Melody Maker and others to anoint her "female vocalist of the year." The following year, she topped the charts with her song Brand New Key ... and so her story began.
