I’m glad I wasn’t around yet to witness this

The Altamont Free Concert in 1969, featuring Rock & Roll legends and headlined by the Rolling Stones. While this was promoted as the” Woodstock of the West Coast”, it was far from it – and was eventually dubbed the greatest concert disaster of all time.

I just finished reading about it and I am currently shocked by the things that have happened during that fateful day.

A documentary entitled “Gimme Shelter” was created to showcase live footages and actual photos of the concert, and to enumerate what exactly happened – resulting to deaths, injuries and emergency births.
