Book Buyers — Jon Hammond: On the scene for Joel Selvin’s Book Release Party last night

“Four months after Woodstock celebrated the free-spirited nature of the
1960s, Altamont brought the decade to a crashing close. The free
festival, which took place at a speedway 50 miles east of San Francisco
on Dec. 6, 1969, lives in notoriety as one of rock music’s great
debacles — the site where 18-year-old Meredith Hunter was stabbed to
death as the Rolling Stones played “Under My Thumb.”
In his latest
book, “Altamont: The Rolling Stones, the Hells Angels, and the Inside
Story of Rock’s Darkest Day,” former Chronicle Pop Music Critic Joel
Selvin talks to the key players of the day to get the definitive account
of what went down when a crowd of 300,000, more than a dozen rock
groups and the Hells Angels — hired for $500 in beer to be stage guards —
came together in the arid valley. He celebrates the book’s release with
a signing party on Tuesday, Aug. 16, at Great American Music Hall,
featuring a set by Rudy Colombini and the Unauthorized Rolling Stones.
Selvin spoke to us about the lure of Altamont.
Q: What is it about Altamont that keeps us interested?

A: It’s one of the few dark days in the history of rock. This was the
anti-Woodstock. It also took place in December of 1969, so it bookmarked
the end of the ’60s in a chronological way. The loss of innocence that
day really is why this has lasted and why it endures as a cultural
touchstone.
Q: What compelled you to revisit an incident that happened nearly 50 years ago?

A: There was a story to be straightened out. “Gimme Shelter,” which was
produced in partnership with the Rolling Stones, is a great movie, but
it’s not a journalistic document. No one has touched this topic since
Rolling Stone magazine’s epic “Let It Bleed” issue in 1969. Until that
report came out, the media had presented Altamont as a triumph. The
Chronicle headline said, “300,000 Say It With Music.” The New York Times
noted the murder of one concert attendant in its story. Everyone fell
in with this “Woodstock of the West” myth.”…
