Altamont Memories

The Altamont Free Concert was held on December 6, 1969 at the Altamont Speedway in Northern California, less than four months after Woodstock. Although it had a strong line-up - Santana, Jefferson Airplane, the Flying Burrito Brothers, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and the Rolling Stones - it was marred by violence, including the stabbing death of Meredith Hunter during the set by the Rolling Stones. Altamont is often mourned as the death of The Sixties. Here are some Altamont memories from the musicians who were there, from the archives.

Please note that on this website the word “Illuminati” is taken to mean “persons possessing, or claiming to possess, superior enlightenment”. This site has nothing to do with secret societies, the Church of Satan, etc, and I am not suggesting that the musicians mentioned on this site have any connection to such organizations or activities.
