I rode my motorcycle as far as I could and then walked into the Rolling Stones Altamont concert with 300,000 other people. I climbed the sound tower with my Nikon, three lenses, a sandwich and a jar of water. The first group on the stage was Grace Slick and the Jefferson Airplane. Soon a guy climbed the tower with a pipe wrench and threatened me if I didn't come down. Later that night, the Hell's Angels killed a man in the audience. By then, I was home.
