    Default BBC reports: Hell's Angels sought to kill Mick Jagger

    http://music.yahoo.com/read/news/57964454

    Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger escaped an assassination plot hatched in 1969 by the Hells Angels, a new British Broadcasting Corp. documentary has claimed.

    A program to be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on Monday says the rock star was the target of the plot following a purported dispute with the motorcycle gang over concert security.
    Jagger had vowed not to use Hells Angel members as bouncers following the death in December 1969 of an 18-year-old fan at a notorious free performance at Altamont Speedway in Northern California.
    In return, gang members hatched a plan to kill Jagger at his holiday home in Long Island, New York, the BBC claimed.
    "The Hells Angels were so angered by Jagger's treatment of them that they decided to kill him," Tom Mangold, the presenter of the program, was quoted as telling Britain's Sunday Telegraph newspaper.
    He said the plan was disclosed during an interview with Mark Young, a former FBI officer, for the BBC's "The FBI at 100" documentary.
    Mangold said the men tried to reach Jagger by sea. "The boat was hit by a storm and all of the men were thrown overboard," he was quoted as saying. They all survived but made no other attempt on his life, Mangold said.
    It was not clear whether Jagger was ever informed of the alleged plot against him.
    LD Communications, Jagger's publicists in Britain, did not immediately return calls requesting comment. The Hells Angels have always denied any connection with the Altamont Speedway killing.

    Could still happen. Maybe their nurses will give them all water guns & let them have at it!

    I think it's an interesting wrinkle and like msdebagain, I remember hearing a lot about Altamont. It doesn't surprise me that those scum put out a hit on ol' Mick.

    I googled "Hell's Angels" because I didn't even know who they were... losers. I love Mick.

    i think it's kind of fun to read about these things. but not as fun as reading about all of the US government's harebrained attempts to off fidel castro over the years. that shit's like something out of woody allen's 'bananas' - cigars laced with lsd, exploding cigars, etc...
