Hotchner, A. E.


1st Edition

Red cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine. Small superficial burn mark (probably from a cigarette) to tail of upper board. Interior clean and unmarked. Dust jacket worn to edges with two closed tears and a burn mark to upper panel. With 16 pages of b/w photographs. *** ‘The Sixties Generation came to an abrupt tragic end on December 6, 1969, on a desolate, barren field in Livermore, California, with the Rolling Stones presiding over the demise.’ A.E. Hotcher describes the infamous free concert at the Altamont Speedway in immaculate detail and makes the case that a disaster was pretty much unavoidable.
