LOS ANGELES - "The Rolling Stones never hired the Hells Angels and Yoko Ono didn't break up the Beatles, and I prove it with Proof of Truth," says the man who was there, Ronnie Schneider, in his new book, Out of Our Heads The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and Me with Proof of Truth, from CLB Inc. Schneider tells the inside story about Altamont, Dec. 6, 1969, where a Hells Angel killed Meredith Hunter during the free concert, and how the greatest rock film, Gimme Shelter, of the greatest rock n' roll band, The Rolling Stones, was created.
"Schneider's fact-filled volume further illustrates how he and the Stones in 1969 helped establish larger creative (production and package) and economic controls of an existing business model which demanded traditional flat fee performer fees to their new economic world where the band received 60-70 percent of the box office gross. This joint model has served as the blueprint for arena and stadium acts that followed. Schneider recounts the business lives of the Beatles and offers a very spiritual moment with George Harrison stopping by his desk and handing him a signed paperback of Autobiography of a Yogi."- Harvey Kubernik-author, music historian.
