People were trying to have a good time, but the "security" was hitting those down front (you could see the shock on the faces of those back a few yards) in a poor attempt at crowd control. No matter what Mick or Keef said, it made little impact. No one expected such violence in the era of peace and love, did they!
I never thought any part of American Pie related to this concert.
Well you could say the era of peace and love was marred by the Vietnam War and there were plenty of demonstrations both violent and peaceful against that.
As I said I think the significent thing is the fact that the band although they could keep a crowd in the palm of their hand while performing don't have any real power. Also I think it was evident that the Angels had no respect for the band at all you can see it in their faces and how they looked at Mick.
