  • Hells Angels Benefit - "Hell's Angels Awakening for the Living"
  • review: Crossland 1970, via Deadsources
  • ref: Rock: "The Anderson is a broken-down palace if ever there was one. It's beautiful inside but it's been closed for a while and has no power — it is pitch-dark inside. The Angels rent a huge generator and run the cables right smack down the middle of the aisle. The generator is so loud that it has to be set up outside on the street, but every time the door is opened this terrible thumpedy-thump just about obliterates the band. Noxious gas fumes blow in, too (somewhat masked by billowing clouds of marijuana smoke). Sandy has gotten hold of a couple of pounds of pot, and the girls have been rolling it up for days. He proceeds to pass the whole thing out into the audience. Pigpen peers out at the crumbling baroque decor of the Anderson through the smoke and fumes and says: 'If there was ever a Sistine Chapel in hell, this is it!'" (Scully 1996, 201).
