Hells Angels Reportedly Tried to Kill Jagger

A new BBC radio documentary says Mick Jagger dodged an assassination plot back in 1969.

The program airing Monday says the Rolling Stones star was the target of the American motorcycle gang, Hells Angels.

It says members were enraged by Jagger's vow to stop using Hells Angels as bouncers at his concerts after an 18-year-old fan was killed at concert in California.

The program's host tells a British paper the gang members hatched a plot to kill Jagger at his home on New York's Long Island.

The bikers planned to get there by boat, but were all tossed overboard in a storm. They survived but, according to the documentary, made no further attempts on Jagger's life.
