Rock Quiz: Gimmie Shelter [December 6th]
Q) On this day in 1969, the Rolling Stones played Altamont Speedway in California. During that concert, an 18-year old fan was stabbed and killed by the Hells Angels in front of the stage. That scene was part of the documentary ‘Gimmie Shelter’ which was released on this day in 1970. One of the camera operators on the crew of that movie has gone on to much bigger and better things in the movie world. Who is he?
A) GEORGE LUCAS (At the Altamont concert, Lucas’ camera jammed after shooting about 100 feet of film. None of his footage was incorporated into the final cut.)
