"We get out of Vietnam, I think it was the 6th of December, 1969. A few days later The Rolling Stones were going to do a free show in Altamont, so my god, what a way to re-adjust to civilian life. It was something that was as edgy as 26 months at war. So we gassed up on the corner of Ashby and Shattuck at a gas station that had a huge sign that said "Gas Cheaper Than LSD" and I took a picture of it and off we went to Altamont. About six or seven miles short of Altamont the highway started turning into a parking lot. You couldn't get much further. At the last possible moment, there were six of us, we decided to go back. Nobody was up for walking the six or seven miles. Thank god. On the way back we had to go for a while in the emergency lane. All of the sudden there was this giant hole in the emergency lane, about 8 feet deep, wider than our car and if we hadn't stopped just in time we might have been killed and gotten swallowed up into that hole. So it was with that energy that off we sped back to Berkeley."- Roger Steffens
