Gimme Shelter - The Rolling Stones' US tour, 1969

I've decided that tomorrow I'm going to watch Gimme Shelter, so I decided to post some more photos I've scanned of the Stones during the fall of 1969, when they toured America (for the first time in three years), in support of their best album (my favorite, at least), Let It Bleed. They just looked so fucking cool in this era, the Stones Mach II, including their fresh-faced new guitarist Mick Taylor, and Jagger donning his 'Leo' shirt for, like, a month straight (Mick J is the quintessential Leo, isn't he?). The music was hot, the mood was apocalyptic, and the tour ended at Altamont (post on that later). Enjoy.

The Stones behind the scenes, going through footage:
God, I love Keith in that Marilyn Monroe shirt...

Awesome collection of pictures! Haven't seen a bunch of these. Love everything about The Stones 69 US tour. My parents saw them in Boston on this tour and I still have the ticket stubs. Great blog!
