The Altamont Free Concert
It anticipated to be the Woodstock of the West, with a lineup boasting the Rolling Stones, Santana, Jefferson Airplane and the Grateful Dead, but the latter did not play when The Hells Angels, as hired security, used force on the rowdier group members and incited a chaotic frenzy. One person was stabbed to death by an Angel, two were killed in a hit-and-run incident, and one drowned in a nearby excavation pit. On the other hand, four births were also reported. Fate.
