WFUV Movie Music: Gimme Shelter (1970)

by Dennis Elsas
A A

When David and Albert Maysles agreed to film the 1969 Rolling Stones American tour, they never imagined their movie would culminate in a murder. Employing their distinctive cinema verite style, they follow the Stones from Madison Square Garden to an Alabama recording studio to a free concert planned for San Francisco. The result is Altamont, a violent end to the peace and love spirit of the Sixties and a frightening look at the dark side of rock 'n' roll.
