In MY honest and humble opinion, the end of the 60s was caused by that HORRIBLE thing that caused the decline and fall of ALL eras, societies and cultures: POLITICS!!! I'd rtaher trust 1000000 Angels than 1/2 a lousy politician any 'ol day!
Meredith DID pull out a gun BEFORE the Angel jumped on him......that is without any doubt!...all the official and UNofficial footage I've seen of Altamont clearly shows that! . Sure, anyone can disguise himself as an Angel.....a bank manager, a priest, a politician, etc. but any of those dudes won't ever grasp the REAL philosophy behind it all......THAT is the big diff between the REAL Angels and the "Sunday dudes"
Wel, that was a good read CD...I enjoyed it a lot especially the part on the Amsterdam chapter. I agree that today's Hell's Angels is another thing....criminals DO tend to infiltrate the Angels too. I wonder if they will get back to the "FUN AND GAMES" concept again?!!
