Hells Angels had a hit out on Mick Jagger

Posted March 3rd, 2008 by Eric Greenwood · 2 Comments

After the surreal tragedy at The Rolling Stones’ infamous 1969 concert at Altamont Speedway in Northern California, lead singer Mick Jagger vowed never again to use the Hells Angels as security detail- a colossal case of too little too late. However, the Hell’s Angels did not take kindly to Jagger’s banishment, having hatched a plot to assassinate him at his Long Island, New York vacation home. Well, the attack never came to fruition and was only recently revealed in a new BBC documentary by a former FBI officer. A few details: The Angels “coordinated a siege on the house from the sea. However, the boat the Hells Angels chartered was itself attacked by a storm, throwing all the Angels overboard. While all the Angels survived, they called off the Jagger strike.” Sounds like these guys were pros.

    If the hells angels wanted anyone dead they could easily pull it off.I suspect the angels have had time to cool off 40 years later and the contract has been terminated.Thats cool,the stones are cool, and the angels just got caught up in a bad scene at altamont.There were too many people there.Everyone respects the angels here in new york state.We leave them alone and they dont bother too many people up here.
