five stars is not enough,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Let It Bleed: Die Rolling Stones, Altamont und das Ende der 60er Jahre (Gebundene Ausgabe)
In this book Ethan E. Russell greatly contributes to our objective knowledge about a great traumatic event in Rolling Stones-history: the infamous Altamont-concert from December 1969, where a man from the audience was killed. This happened only less than half a year after another famous traumatic RS-event: the death of former band-member Brian Jones.
Altamont was the last concert of an otherwise succesful RS-tour in the USA. The writer, being around as a photographer at the time, does no more than telling his story - in a rational and balanced way. His tale fits in well with all known facts, and I see no reason to doubt its truth.
Oh yes, and Russell also adds many fine photographs as an extra bonus. As well as his view on the philosophy that the Sixties-pop-culture found its grave at Altamont. Drawing an interesting comparison with Michelangelo Antonioni's famous Sixties-film 'Blow Up'.
