Review:

"[Cutler] writes with great insight and with humor about the antics of the legendary musicians he looked after and having to deal with riot police, groupies, drug dealers, mobsters and promoters, as well as friendships with rock legends like Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and former Pink Floyd frontman, Syd Barrett." --Bookviews by Alan Caruba (blog)

"A fascinating historical snapshot not only on the life and heady times of the Stones, the Dead and Altamont, but of the Sixties themselves. As such, it is not to be missed." --blogcritics.org

"[Cutler's] memoir of his time with first the Stones and then the Grateful Dad brings to life hippie-era delights (lots of acid) and an encroaching darkness . . . he unleashes one killer road tale after another." --"Rolling Stone"

"A quintessential addition to any die-hard rock and roll fan's bookcase." --Daily Vanguard Online

"A riveting rock read." "--Sun-Herald"

"Effortlessly readable, packed with entertaining, sleazy, behind-the-scenes tales." --"Portland Mercury"

"Entertaining, eye-opening memoir . . . the book hits a particularly colourful stride with the Stones' arrival in LA to finish "Let It Bleed" and rehearse for the dates ahead." --"Uncut Magazine" (U.K.)

"Thoroughly impossible to put down." --"ABORT MAGAZINE"

Book Description ECW Press,Canada, Canada, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Sam Cutler was tour manager for the Rolling Stones at some of their major gigs in the late sixties, including the infamous concert at Altamont where a man was murdered by a Hells Angel in front of the stage while the Stones played on. After the show, Sam was left behind to make peace with the Hells Angels, the various mobsters and organizations who had taken an overt interest in the event, and the people of America. There has never been an official investigation into events at Altamont and those involved have never before spoken on record. Sam Cutler has decided that it is time to put to rest the myths and legends that have grown up around this infamous event in rock history and for the first time reveal the truth. Sam survived Altamont and went on to live the ultimate rock and roll dream. This is also his own account of the high ol' times he had managing tours for San Francisco band the Grateful Dead -- who went on to become the world's most successful live act. Along the way Sam draws intimate portraits of other stars of the psychedelic circus that was the music industry in the sixties and seventies, including Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, The Band, the Allman Brothers, Pink Floyd, and Eric Clapton. This is an exhilarating, all-areas-access rock memoir from someone who has seen -- and done -- it all. Seller Inventory # AAT9781550229325
