In 1969 Michael Lydon, a founding editor of Rolling Stone and a leading member of rock writing´s first generation, got a dream assignment: to cover the Rolling Stones´ hopscotch tour across America that ended at Altamont. His long, intimate piece on the tour, The Rolling Stones Discover America, captures the highs and lows of the grueling tour and has become a classic of rock ´n´ roll journalism - one that the Maysles brothers studied to guide the editing of their film, Gimme Shelter. Nobody used the term ´´embedded reporter´´ in those days, but that´s how Lydon lived on the tour, staying in the Stones´ HQ house above LA´s Sunset Strip and in suites at New York´s Plaza Hotel, flying in private jets to Dallas, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Boston, gambling in Las Vegas, hanging out backstage at the LA Forum and Manhattan´s Madison Square Garden, smoking pot with ´´The Boys´´ in late night bull sessions, and night after night digging the overpowering, sensuous, and beautiful music. ´´This was the peak of my rock ´n´ roll reporting career,´´ Lydon has said. ´´I knew I was where every hippie in America wanted to be, and I jumped into the tour with my eyes and ears wide open, a big grin on my mug.´´ In The Rolling Stones Discover America, Lydon also describes his own nervousness living so close to stardom. ´´The Stones were good guys and hardworking musicians,´´ he says, ´´but they were the sun kings of the tour universe. The rest of us were minor planets spinning about them in fixed and distant orbits. It´s a miracle I managed to keep my feet on the ground, keep taking notes, and get the story down on paper - but I´m glad I did.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Lydon.

In this breathtaking cultural history filled with exclusive, never-before-revealed details, celebrated rock journalist Joel Selvin tells the definitive story of the Rolling Stones´ infamous Altamont concert in San Francisco, the disastrous historic event that marked the end of the idealistic 1960s. In the annals of rock history, the Altamont Speedway Free Festival on December 6, 1969, has long been seen as the distorted twin of Woodstock - the day that shattered the ´60s´ promise of peace and love when a concertgoer was killed by a member of the Hells Angels, the notorious biker club acting as security. While most people know of the events from the film Gimme Shelter, the whole story has remained buried in varied accounts, rumor, and myth - until now. Altamont explores rock´s darkest day, a fiasco that began well before the climactic death of Meredith Hunter and continued beyond that infamous December night. Joel Selvin probes every aspect of the show - from the Stones´ hastily planned tour preceding the concert to the bad acid that swept through the audience to other deaths that also occurred that evening - to capture the full scope of the tragedy and its aftermath. He also provides an in-depth look at the Grateful Dead´s role in the events leading to Altamont, examining the band´s behind-the-scenes presence in both arranging the show and hiring the Hells Angels as security. The product of 20 years of exhaustive research and dozens of interviews with many key players, including medical staff, Hells Angels members, the stage crew, and the musicians who were there, Altamont is the ultimate account of the final event in rock´s formative and most turbulent decade. 1.
