Former FBI agent Mark Young has revealed that there was an assassination attempt on Mick Jagger. UCR reports that the Hells Angles had it in for Jagger since the well known incident at Altamont where they stabbed a person who pulled a gun after preventing that person from getting on stage. The Hells Angel charged after the stabbing was acquitted, they were hired as security. But the Angels weren’t happy with Jagger’s interaction with the crowd and him later saying he would never use them again.
The assassination attempt was foiled and kept secret even from Jagger until much later. The FBI became aware of the attempted murder of Mick Jagger when an informant revealed it during their investigation of the Hells Angels. According to Young, “Their plan involved making entry into his Long Island property, going by boat. As they gathered the weaponry and their forces to go out on Long Island Sound, a storm rolled up, which nearly sunk the watercraft they were in, and they escaped with their own lives.” More here.
