The Altamont Concert 1969
Everyone has heard about Woodstock, but surprisingly few people have heard about the Rolling Stones free concert tht closed out the 60’s as a “bad trip.” The Stones presented an all-star lineup of the biggest names in Rock Music. But, the ‘love, joy, peace’ of Woodstock wasn’t to be repeated at Altamont. The concert is presented in the documentary film, “Gimme Shelter.”
I attended the Altamont Concert 1969, but left as the ‘vibe’ started feeling a bit uncomfortable. Here are some photos I shot that day (not the best quality, but it was my first time with my dad’s camera!).
