50 years ago at Altamont

I realize I didn’t grow up during the 60’s but I think it was the greatest decade for music and set the stage of rock music for the next 30 years. So when the Stone’s decided to have a free concert in California and hired the Hell’s Angels as security ( paying them in beer) and the crowd got rowdy all hell broke loose. A man rushed the stage with a gun aimed at Mick Jagger and he was stabbed by several Hell’s Angels, killing him as the Stone’s played “Under my Thumb” And as someone is obsessed with the history of this period the killing of Meredith Hunter by the Hell’s Angels was the end of the 60s music and all the peace and love that went with it. And to think it was all filmed for a documentary about the Stone’s US tour. That was 50 years ago
