"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.
"This is a book that will be cited often, starting immediately as original 'primary source' material by those documenting the Stones. Additionally, there are some very fine never-heard Beatles
stories and insights into the band at a time when they were transitioning management and their organization from Brian Epstein to Allen Klein, by way of Eastman."-Susan Doran-Rolling Stones Fan
