Quote from Carlos Santana (The Universal Tone 2014)
It was Altamont Speedway---and I don’t think I’ve ever been happier to be the first band to go on, then or now. Now that I look back on it, I think that while Woodstock was as close to spirituality as you could get, Altamont was about overindulgence and cocaine and strutting your stuff to see how badass you were. (…) You can see it in the movie Gimme Shelter---it was all so tangible. The Stones wanted us to be in their movie, and I think we were all pretty much in agreement that we didn’t want any part of that. (226-227)
