I'm willing to consider more issues featuring Nemesis, but at this point the one above is my one and only.

The D ick Tracy newspaper strip was one of my very favourites in the 1960's. It ran on the very front page of the colour comic section in the Saturday London Free Press. Here are scans from my small collection of D ick Tracy comics:

The last Harvey issue of D ick Tracy was #145 cover dated April 1961. I'd like to add more issues to my collection over time.

It was fifty years ago on the 6th of December that the infamous concert at the Altamont Speedway in California would bring the curtain down on flower power and the love generation:

 

 

Compelling evidence indeed that hasty last minute planning of a free concert in California that would end up attracting 300,000 music fans and sundry LSD and amphetamine fuelled hippies, the budget driven hiring of drunken Hells Angels to provide security and a collection of rock bands including the Rolling Stones don't mix. Despite the resultant deaths including that of Meredith Hunter, things could have turned out even worse. Hunter was according to his own girlfriend enraged, irrational and "so high (on methamphetamines) that he could barely walk". Who did he intend to shoot with the revolver? Angels, Stones, or was he just going to start shooting?

Nonetheless it was fitting that the Rolling Stones who had made a career out of being the "bad boys of rock" were not just present but were key players at the denouement of the Woodstock generation.

December 1969 was also the month of release of the LP Let It Bleed which marked the demarcation point between the Brian Jones era of the Stones and the Mick Taylor era. Neither fellow played much on the LP. Brian Jones played autoharp on You Got the Silver and added percussion to Midnight Rambler but that was it. Mick Taylor meanwhile played guitar on Live With Me and slide guitar on Country Honk but that too was it.

The LP contained several tracks still regarded as all-time classics:

 

 

 

What's ironic is that back in their early years in 1963-64 the Stones had repeatedly insisted that they were not a rock band but a "rhythm 'n blues" band. Yet beginning with the 1966 release of Aftermath, the Stones had by December of 1969 released five LPs that had stretched the boundaries of rock music. They were of course also billing themselves as the "World's Greatest Rock & Roll Band" by this time.

 Indeed! In their early years the Stones used to make a point of stressing that they were actually a rhythm and blues band unlike most other British Invasion bands. Brian Jones can be heard making the statement in this LP:

For whatever reason I picked up this outlier for my magazine collection some fifteen years ago:

I must have had a pocketful of spending money that day I guess....
