It is always nice to have a bizarre little story with which to start your week. How about this one - the Hell's Angels were so enraged with their treatment by Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones after the Altamont concert in CA in 1969 (they were in charge of security and are believed to have killed an 18 year-old concert goer) that they hatched a plot to kill Jagger. Yup, the boys decided to kill him at his Long Island home in New York.
And instead of getting there by land they chose to go by sea. The result was rather interesting:
The bikers planned to get there by boat, but were all tossed overboard in a storm. They survived but, according to the documentary, made no further attempts on Jagger's life.Stick with your bikes, boys. The story is told in a audio documentary airing on BBC radio
Tom Mangold, the presenter of the program, claims the information was made public in an interview with Mark Young, a former FBI officer, for the BBC's "The FBI at 100" documentary.
