Inevitably it came to be that I revisited the whole Altamont nightmare topic. A new perspective now that I'm near 50 years old.
I remember my dad showing me the "Gimme Shelter" movie when I was quite young and the haunting images from it. They
say this event ended the 60's along with the Manson murders. Watching the movie again for the first time in about 30 years
I can say it's still hard to believe it all happened. For those of you who have never seen the movie or heard what happened
or if those of you who are familiar with it and are interested, it is posted on YouTube here :
A radio broadcast from the day after. A forum of the events as callers tell their side including a member of the Hell"s Angels.
And a pretty interesting interview with Joel Selvin who put out a book last year on Altamont.
Still shocking to this day.
