The Altamont Concert

Check it out: I actually have this documentary (Gimme Shelter) on VHS somewhere. I need to get it on DVD. Anyways, this is the Rolling Stones infamous Altamont concert in SF in 1969. There were four births and four deaths (one murder) at this free concert. The whole thing is worth a watch (why is there a dog on stage at one point?), but the end shows them helping a man to the ground.

It was only upon review of the footage that anyone realized they caught the stabbing murder on film.
