A real coup, Marc, this Maysles meet, and it's decent of the man to defend the Angels as "misunderstood" (the neutrality of a documentary filmmaker), but as an actual eyewitness to the mayhem and pool cues that day, as well as the ornery Stoned fans up front, I'd say "overreacted" would be a still-too-generous judgment.

It was a major miscalculation on the part of the frantic organizers to put in unsecured close proximity such a volatile mixture of peoples and temperaments and unknown intentions. I offered some comments on Altamont yesterday; for a more complete report, readers might visit my "I Witness" post at http://mrebks.blogspot.com/2007/09/let-em-bleed.html --the post just preceding it deals with Monterey Pop, in contrast.

(And thanks for the forum, Marc.)
