On November 1 1968, French director Jean Luc Godard filmed the Airplane playing a set on the roof of Manhattan’s Shuyler Hotel. The shots of passer-bys looking up at the roof recall the climax of Let It Be, which captured the Beatles’ final live performance on the roof of Apple in London on January 30, 1969.
The Airplane are a little more, shall we say, uncouth, with Grace Slick howling, “New York, wake up, you fuckers! Free music! Make some! Free love!”
Earlier in 1968, Godard documented the Rolling Stones making Beggars Banquet in Sympathy for the Devil: One Plus One.
