The Not Fade Away podcast visiting The Rolling Stones once again but this time we are moving from 1969 concert at Altamont to the Stones’ crazy years in New York City in the 60s,70s & 80s. Author Christopher McKittrick’s new book Can’t Give it Away on Seventh Avenue: The Rolling Stones in New York City is an homage to the band and the city which seems like their second home.

The Not Fade Away podcast is back and I am so excited to talk about today’s subject--the Altamont concert that took place on December 6, 1969. It was supposed to be a showcase by the Rolling Stones to demonstrate their ability to draw an even bigger crowd than the Woodstock festival which took place in August of that year.
