Stones - Let It Bleed

Let It Bleed was born in an age of reckoning, against the worldwide backdrop of daily, televised Armageddon: America’s quagmire in Vietnam; the civil warfare and racial conflict at home; the bombs and Marxist rhetoric of a new, extreme underground; the twisted bloodlust of Charles Manson, the mastermind of the Tate Murders in L.A. (August 1969) a short drive from where the Stones finished their album that fall. And when the Stones decided to end their 1969 tour with a generous flourish – a free festival in Northern California, four months after the mass utopia at Woodstock – the result on December 6th at Altamont Speedway was fear, mayhem and a killing near the stage caught on film.” – David Fricke
