FORTY NINE YEARS AGO ‘THE ALTAMONT’ TOOK PLACE.

THE FREE CONCERT WAS THE BRAINCHILD OF THE ROLLING STONES AND IT

WAS SUPPOSED TO PUT A WRAP ON THE ROLLING STONES 1969 US TOUR.

A LARGELY IMPROVISED AFFAIR, 300,000 PEOPLE ATTENDED, AND THE HELLS ANGELS HANDLED SECURITY FOR 500 BUCKS IN BEER. WHAT COULD GO WRONG ?

FOUR DEATHS, SCORES INJURED, AND EXTENSIVE PROPERTY DAMAGE.

ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE CALLED IT “ROCK AND ROLL’S WORST DAY”

HERE IS COMPELLING VIDEO OF THE CONCERT AT ALTAMONT
