The True Story of Gimme Shelter

I never believed in all that “Altamount was the death of the sixties generation” crap. Altamount was a poorly organized attempt to capitalize on the success of Woodstock, an event incidentally that wasn’t exactly run on incense and peppermints itself. That being said, one was a colossal success while the other was an abysmal failure and if you want to read a fascinating article about Altamount and the filming of Gimme Shelter then check out Gimme Shelter: The True Story. Wild stuff to be sure.
