“Altamont
The Rolling Stones, the Hells Angels, and the Inside Story of Rock’s Darkest Day

Joel:

by Joel Selvin” – It was a gathering of the tribes of sorts some 47 years later there at Great American Music Hall on O’Farrell Street San Francisco – The Release read:

“Please join us this evening as we celebrate the release of Joel
Selvin’s new book ‘Altamont’ – in addition to a book signing, there will
be a concert by Rudy Colombini & The Unauthorized Rolling Stones!
Admission is free & the doors open at 7pm!”

Joel Selvin Takes Over Almost Entire Datebook Section of SF Chron:

Is it Zero Mostel? No it’s Robert Altman! – Jon Hammond: On the scene for Joel Selvin’s Book Release Party last night at Great American Music Hall:

Book Buyers — Jon Hammond: On the scene for Joel Selvin’s Book Release Party last night

“Four months after Woodstock celebrated the free-spirited nature of the
1960s, Altamont brought the decade to a crashing close. The free
festival, which took place at a speedway 50 miles east of San Francisco
on Dec. 6, 1969, lives in notoriety as one of rock music’s great
debacles — the site where 18-year-old Meredith Hunter was stabbed to
death as the Rolling Stones played “Under My Thumb.”
In his latest
book, “Altamont: The Rolling Stones, the Hells Angels, and the Inside
Story of Rock’s Darkest Day,” former Chronicle Pop Music Critic Joel
Selvin talks to the key players of the day to get the definitive account
of what went down when a crowd of 300,000, more than a dozen rock
groups and the Hells Angels — hired for $500 in beer to be stage guards —
came together in the arid valley. He celebrates the book’s release with
a signing party on Tuesday, Aug. 16, at Great American Music Hall,
featuring a set by Rudy Colombini and the Unauthorized Rolling Stones.
Selvin spoke to us about the lure of Altamont.
Q: What is it about Altamont that keeps us interested?

A: It’s one of the few dark days in the history of rock. This was the
anti-Woodstock. It also took place in December of 1969, so it bookmarked
the end of the ’60s in a chronological way. The loss of innocence that
day really is why this has lasted and why it endures as a cultural
touchstone.
Q: What compelled you to revisit an incident that happened nearly 50 years ago?

A: There was a story to be straightened out. “Gimme Shelter,” which was
produced in partnership with the Rolling Stones, is a great movie, but
it’s not a journalistic document. No one has touched this topic since
Rolling Stone magazine’s epic “Let It Bleed” issue in 1969. Until that
report came out, the media had presented Altamont as a triumph. The
Chronicle headline said, “300,000 Say It With Music.” The New York Times
noted the murder of one concert attendant in its story. Everyone fell
in with this “Woodstock of the West” myth.”…

Stern warning about using caution while crossing the train tracks in Berkeley – In memory of Scott Slaughter – age 31 R.I.P. – Berkeley CA – Jon Hammond

http://www.berkeleydailyplanet.com/issue/2007-11-20/article/28516?headline=Berkeley-Train-Death-Similar-to-June-Accident-at-Jack-London-Square–
Berkeley Train Death Similar to June Accident at Jack London Square
By Judith Scherr
Tuesday November 20, 2007

Scott Slaughter, 31, of Oakland lost his life Thursday morning when he crossed the train tracks north of the Berkeley Amtrak Station on his way to his job at Truitt & White, located near the tracks on Hearst Avenue.

Slaughter was talking on his cell phone and watched a train pass going south, but was hit by the Chicago-bound California Zephyr at 8:12 a.m. going in the opposite direction, according to Vernae Graham, Amtrak spokesperson.

This was an eerie reminder to Berkeley Councilmember Linda Maio of the death in June of Bread Project founder Lucie Buchbinder, 83, at a train crossing in Jack London Square. Similarly, Buchbinder was talking on a cell phone, waited for one train to pass and was struck by another going in the opposite direction.

“It takes three football fields [distance] to stop the train,” Graham told the Planet.

The city does not have statistics available on pedestrians killed by trains in Berkeley. According to Operation Lifesaver, a nonprofit that provides rail safety education, there were six pedestrians killed by trains in Alameda County in 2005 and seven in 2006. From January through July 2007 there have been three such deaths in the county.

With a new police department computer system, the city will do a more efficient job of tracking such accidents, Maio said.

Speaking on Monday, Maio said she had not yet been briefed on the accident, but said there may need to be a prohibition against trains passing each other from two different directions in an urban setting. Or trains may need to be elevated when they pass through cities, she said.

“There have been two accidents like this—it should be a wake-up call,” Maio said.

In September, at Maio’s behest, the City Council voted to have a study conducted on the feasibility of mandating a quiet zone in Berkeley, where trains are not allowed to sound their horns. Rail safety issues within the city will be evaluated in that study being conducted by WilburSmith Associates.

Operation Lifesaver provides rail safety education to interested groups. The organization can be reached through their website at www.oli.org — at Berkeley Amtrak Train

Kultur –
JOURNAL FRANKFURTAlle NachrichtenKulturMy home away from home:
on Hammond zum 27. Mal auf der Musikmesse

Nomen est omen. Der Mann heißt Hammond und spielt eine Hammond. Der Organist aus New York freut sich auf Frankfurt und lädt zur Musikmesse Warm Up Party am 9.4. in den Jazzkeller ein.
JOURNAL FRANKFURT: Was war für Sie zuerst da – die Frankfurter Musikmesse oder Auftritte im Jazzkeller?
Jon Hammond: Die Musikmesse. Ich kam 1987 zum ersten Mal nach Frankfurt, zusammen mit Joe Berger, der auf der Messe für Engl Amplifiers spielte. Wir flogen mit der Lufthansa ein und teilten uns ein Zimmer im berühmten Prinz Otto Hotel am Hauptbahnhof. Schon in der ersten Nacht stellte mir Joe den großen John Entwistle, den Bassisten von The Who vor. Es wurde eine lange Nacht, in der wir Cognac tranken und Erdnüsse knabberten in eiern Suite des Marriott Hotels. Ich habe Joe bei einer Session mit John und Ringo Starrs Sohn Zak Starkey im Dorian Grey Club gefilmt bei einer Soundcheck Party. In den ersten paar Jahren spielte ich nicht oft live weil ich noch keine transportierbare Hammond Orgel hatte vor 1991 als ich den Prototyp einer XB-2 Hammond Orgel bekam mit der ich dann um die Welt reiste. Hauptsächliche dokumenierte ich aber die Messe für meine Cable TV Show in New York, die inzwischen im 29. Jahr als The Jon Hammond Show — Music, Travel and Soft News präsentiert. Die harten Nachrichten überlasse ich CNN und den großen Networks (lacht). Vom ersten Jahr an fühlten wir uns der Musikmesse eng verbunden, haben seitdem eine tolle Zeit hier, kommen jedes Jahr wieder bis wir kleine, alte Männer sind.

Das Jazzkeller-Konzert am Vorabend der Musikmesse ist zu einer netten Tradition geworden – wie kam es dazu, was bedeutet es Ihnen und wir werden Sie dieses Jahr diesen Abend im Jazzkeller zelebrieren?
Ab 1991 lernte ich mehr und mehr Musikmesse-Menschen kennen und die mich und auch einiges von meiner Musik. Einige von ihnen ermunterten mich, doch auch für Auftritte nach Deutschland zu kommen weil es hier doch ein Interesse an Hammond-Orgel-Groove-Music gab. Mit der schon erwähnten, kleinen, kompakten aber sehr kraftvollen Orgel war das alles möglich. Zudem machte ich in New York gerade eine schwere Zeit durch, mein Vater war gestorben und ich hatte das Gefühl, einige Veränderungen könnten meinem Leben gut tun. Also kam ich nach Frankfurt mit meiner XB-2, allerdings mit einem Rückflugticket falls etwas schief gehen würde. Ich rief viele Musiker an, ließ sie wissen, ich bin jetzt da, lasst uns zusammen spielen. Das war für mich der Anfang einer langen, sehr speziellen Beziehung, vor allem zum Frankfurter Publikum nach ersten kleinen erfolgen im Jazzkeller und einer kurzen Auftritt im Hessen Report im Fernsehen. Beatrix Rief verdanke ich dieses “lucky light on me”, eine tolle Erfahrung. Seitdem nenne ich Frankfurt “My Good Luck City” und im Jazzkeller begann auch alles für mich als Musiker. Deshalb liegt mir der Club auch so nah am Herzen, deshalb hatte ich auch die Idee, meine “Musikmesse Warm Up Party” dort zu realisieren, immer in der Nacht bevor die Messe startet was zu einer schönen Tradition wurde. Im ersten Jahr, in dem ich dann auch ein wenig Sponsoring von Philip Morris bekam, konnte ich damit einige Flugtickets für befreundete Musik bezahlen. Darüber war ich sehr glücklich. Dabei rauche ich selbst gar nicht.

Wie würden Sie Ihr persönliches Verhältnis zu Deutschland und Frankfurt beschrieben?
Lassen Sie es mich so sagen: ich liebe Frankfurt und die Frankfurter waren immer gut zu mir in all den Jahren. Ich könnte ein ganzes Buch über die Zeit schreiben, in der ich in Bornheim wohnte und Nacht für Nacht in der alten Jazzkneipe in der Berliner Straße auftrat. Das war der Treffpunkt, wo auch die Musiker der HR Bigband hinkamen und es gab eine generöse Chefin in der kleinen Kneipe. Auch Regine Dobberschütz und Eugen Hahn im Jazzkeller waren wahre Jazzengel für mich, die mir so vieles ermöglichten in der Zeit. Wir konnten auch in den Studios von AFN Radio spielen, waren die einzigen Musiker, die das – mit einer Sondergenehmigung des US Militärs – durften. Für ein wenig Promotion für die Musikmesse. Wir nannten das Programm für die AFN “Profile TV “-Show “Sound Police”. Wir hatten viel Spaß. Kein Wunder also, dass ich Frankfurt als my home away from home begreife und ich mich jedes Mal wieder freue zur Musikmesse zu reisen, in diesem Jahr übrigens zum 27. Mal in Folge. Und ich bin diesmal besonders aufgeregt, heim nach Frankfurt zu kommen weil ich gerade 60 Jahre alt geworden bin.

Wer wird in diesem Jahr zum Gelingen des Konzertes mit teils komponierter, teils improvisierter Musik, so nehme ich an, beitragen und was für einen Sound wird die Band präsentieren?
Ich habe etwa 90% der Kompositionen geschrieben, die wir spielen werden. Es ist die Musik, die man auch in meiner New Yorker TV-Show hören kann und die mich mehrmals um die Welt getragen hat. Meinen Stil nenne ich “Swinging Funky Jazz and Blues” und featurert die ganz wunderbaren Solisten in meine Band: Tony Lakatos, den großen ungarischen Tenorsaxophonisten, der auch Mitglied in der hr Bigband ist, dann meinen alten Freund Giovanni Gulino, diesen tollen Schlagzeuger, der schon für fast alle Großen der Szene getrommelt hat. Ich liebe diese Jungs. Als Gitarrist ist mein alten Freund und Kollege Joe Berger dabei, den man auch als The Berger-Meister kennt. Auf diese Formation bin ich wirklich stolz.

Werden Sie im Jazzkeller wieder eine Hammond Orgel spielen?
Ja, sicher, das neueste Modell, eine Sk1, die exakt so klingt wie die legendäre B3. Ich liebe sie. Und sie wiegt nur noch sieben Kilo (Anm. des Autors: Das Original, ein echtes Möbel mit viel Holz, mussten immer zwei Menschen mit viel Muskelkraft die Treppen rauf und runter hieven), ein deutliches Indiz, dass wir in der Zukunft angekommen sind. Da stecken viele Jahre Forschung und Entwicklung drin, auch Bühnenerprobungen. Ich ziehe den Hut vor den Ingenieuren von Suzuki, ein unverwüstliches Instrument erschaffen zu haben. Und das unterziehe ich jetzt einen echten Härttest (lacht).

JON HAMMOND Jazz Man

Jon Hammond’s story is one of survival. Survival as a jazz musician, survival as a Manhattanite. The organist-accordionist has survived because of perseverance, love of his art, tremendous humor, and gratitude. His new independently produced and marketed CD, HAMMOND’S BOLERO, which contains only music written by Hammond, is both a statement and a tribute. As his CD notes begin, “This record marks a new beginning for me, and I would like to dedicate it to all those who, like myself, are striking out on their own and going it alone. Don’t be afraid to follow your dreams. I did and now this record is for you!” Following his dream at times has not been easy.

Take his living situation. Hammond is fairly new to Manhattan Plaza—a resident for just two years—and like everything else involving this multitalented man, there’s an interesting story attached. “I’m living under a lucky star after years of putting up with all kinds of adverse conditions. Manhattan Plaza has been a great, great help for me.” Living in the Clinton area, Hammond survived six ceiling collapses in his apartment and was finally driven out by sick building syndrome, i.e. poisonous mold in the walls. He realized it only after watching an epsode of 60 MINUTES. Did he sue? “No,” he says. “Put it this way—the title song for my TV show is called ‘Late Rent.’ I used to pay my landlord partial payments, etc. so I never sued.”

As a further testament to his Manhattan survival, Hammond is a nineteen-year-veteran of cable access with his own television show, aptly titled THE JON HAMMOND SHOW. Manhattan Plaza residents Todd Anderson (tenor sax) and Bill Warfield (trumpet) have been featured as part of the band. the show airs on Monday at 9:30 p.m. on channels 56 and 108 and various times on other channels. For more information, viewers can check Hammond’s website, http://community.webtv.net/laterent/JONHAMMOND

Jon Hammond Band

http://www.jonhammondband.com

But before the glamour of Manhattan, CD’s, opening for Bonnie Raitt, and some other high-class gigs, Hammond paid his dues. Attending the Berklee college of Music in Boston in 1973, he earned money on the wild side. “I used to play in these Mafia striptease clubs seven nights a week. Boy, that was the end of an era. I was working for the Venus brothers, notorious gangsters, and I was the house organist at the infamous 2 O’Clock Lounge, the Mousetrap Lounge, The Hungry I—all these clubs that were in what was known as the Combat Zone in Boston.”

And how did he get to New York? “Well, I knew a stripper named Didi Bangbang, a really nice girl. She knew I had a van. When you have a van, you get some interesting calls. She had a show at this burlesque club in New York so she said, ‘Drive me and I’ll introduce you to New York.’ This was in 1975. She had wild props, like a plexiglass round platform with disco lights inside of it. We loaded everything in this army green van and drove to New York.”

From New York, Hammond went on the road with a show band called Easy Living “It was one of the top show bands—this was before disco—and you’d get on the different circuits. We were in the $10,000-a-week bracket.”

Just one problem. “I get the call for a really great gig, but it’s always at the end. When you see me show up, it’s a doomsday situation. The band toured for six months. We were in Toronto working at the Four Seasons Inn on the Park, one of the nicest hotels I’ve ever been in in my life. I was living like a king. I thought I’d died and gone to heaven. Well, they had installed a DJ booth—the first place we ever played with one installed. He played on our breaks. They would cross-fade, meaning we would re-enter playing the music he had been playing. But I could see the handwriting on the wall. The disco thing had not really come in and taken over yet—the very first tune that was a big disco hit was “The Hustle.” “We had to do it with the band. That tune was like the death knell. Disco came in and the bands went out.”

A musician’s life involves a lot of travel, and that Hammond has done—back and forth throughout North America, from New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Cape Cod, and Toronto. “Around 1977, I ended up in Boston again. There I heard through the grapevine that Lou Colombo, the trumpet player, was looking for an organist for a private harbor club in Harwichport, Massachussets. Another great job. One of the members was Tip O’Neil, who became Speaker of the House, and I played all of his private parties. He was always very nice. That lasted for two years and then they reduced the nights.”

In September 1981, Hammond fulfilled his dream of a lifetime—traveling to Paris on the Concorde. “I lived it out exactly as I saw it in my dream.” Hammond recalls. “I had a haircut. I bought a dark blue suit. I bought a case that I still travel with today. Every man was wearing the same suit I was. As soon as the plane took off, I realized I was leaving the continent for the first time and I got very emotional.”

Hammond stayed in Paris “as long as I could. I wrote music there. It was more than I hoped it would be. I swore I’d come back to live. I ended up in Europe for six years, actually in Frankfurt, going back and forth to the States, from 1991 to 1997.” For being a consultant on the design, Suzuki gave him an XB-2 Hammond organ, which was a big help to him.

A career change occurred when he and his band were hired to play at the Jazzkeller in Frankfurt. “I went on a TV show to promote it,” he recalls, “Later on, I took a cab to the club and there was a huge commotion outside. I thought it was due to a group playing an earlier set. I said to the cab driver, ‘Gee, I hope they finish soon.’ the driver said, “They’re waiting for you.;” Though Hammond did very well in Europe, including a concert on Radio France, a trade war soon found american jazz musicians being cut out of European work. “I came home on Pakistan Airlines” the former Concorde passenger remembers. Hammond is used to the roller coaster ride of the musician—one day on tour with Percy Sledge, the next day coming home from France with $50.

Hammond recently returned from successful concerts in Germany at the International Trade show “Musikmesse” for the seventeenth consecutive year with his co-producer Joe Berger, of Ham-Berger-Friz Records, the producer of the CD. You got it. Hamburger/fries. Hammond’s CD is currently getting radio play in Germany and National Public Radio stations in the U.S. Several manhattan Plaza residents are involved in the CD. On April 28, he had a launch party at Le Bar Bat.

Though only occasionally veering outside of the music world, Hammond did something unusual in 2001. “My mother called me and said, ‘Jon, they’re hiring at United Airlines.’ I thought, what can it hurt to please my mother, I”ll apply. I did get an offer but I was unable to take it because it involved transporting luggage, and I couldn’t do it because of my bad back. However, they then found out that I speak German. I was offered a better job in International. Now guess when I was supposed to start training? October 2001. Well, you know what happened to the airlines after 9/11, and you know what I said about getting a gig at the death knell. So this told me one thing, I’m supposed to be a musician.” He’s right.

Miracle on 42nd Street Trailer

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-0A56IC6uM

MIRACLE ON 42ND STREET is a feature length documentary about the unique apartment complex called Manhattan Plaza located in Manhattan’s historic theatre district, a neighborhood also known as Hell’s Kitchen. Located on the block between 42nd and 43rd Streets, it is often called the “Miracle on 42nd Street” due to the near-miraculous effect the complex has had on the once-blighted neighborhood and on the lives of its residents. Seventy percent of the occupants work in the performing arts and thirty percent are Hell’s Kitchen residents who are elderly, disabled or have been relocated from substandard housing. The film tells the story of how this innovative affordable housing experiment came to be, the artists it has nurtured, the close community its residents and management have created and the positive impact it has had on the economy of Manhattan’s West Side. The filmmakers, several of whom are current and former residents, are passionate about sharing the story of Manhattan Plaza with the world. It is a unique model of what can be achieved by bringing together over 3,500 people from differing cultural, ethnic and economic backgrounds. The film is intended for festival release and to air on television. We hope that by making this film, the example of Manhattan Plaza will inspire new ways of thinking about affordable housing in cities around the globe. We believe that Manhattan Plaza’s success was brought about by the creative community it housed, people whose dreams and goals might not have been realized had it not been for the opportunity of living in Manhattan Plaza. People like Broadway composer Alan Menken, Terrence Howard, Alicia Keys, Tennessee Williams, Marin Alsop (groundbreaking female orchestra conductor), Dexter Gordon, Larry David, Charles Mingus, Mickey Rourke, Andrea McArdle (Broadway’s first Annie) and Sandy, her dog. Samuel L. Jackson worked there as a security guard in his first and only non-acting job.
