The Rolling Stones are one of my favorite bands, definitely classic rock at its best.
In December of 1969, the Rolling Stones helped to organize a free concert at Altamont Freeway in California, where they also perfomed at. It was noted that there was a sense of unrest hovering above the crowd. The Hell’s Angels had agreed to do security and what was supposed to be a great event turned into something tragic with the death of several people, including the stabbing of a young man right by the stage.
This picture is said to be of Jagger witnessing the event unfolding.
For their A/W 2007 collection, Lover the Label draws inspiration from the freedom of the sixties and uses Altamont as a point of reference.
From their site, “Among the air of uneasiness the girls of Altamont intermixed; the flower children and the teen runaways, the biker girls and the hippie witches. They all came clutching flowers, hoping for a glimpse of Mick Jagger, instead they witnessed the end of innocence.”
Here is a short video from Lover showcasing the A/W 2007 Altamont Collection titled: “Waiting for Mick”
