Sam Cutler is the former tour manager for the Rolling Stones and the Grateful Dead.
"His 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"Cutler is one of the select few people alive uniquely qualified to report first-hand on all of the music and the madness surrounding the events of that historic tour, including those which occurred at the infamous free concert at Altamont . . . Sam Cutler's You Cant Always Get What You Want is 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." -- Blog Critics"An 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"Effortlessly readable, packed with entertaining, sleazy, behind-the-scenes tales. These include Cutler's fistfight with rock impresario Bill Graham outside the Stones' dressing room door, a bizarre encounter with the Butter Queen of Dallas (think Plaster Caster, except with, well, butter), plus a riveting take on the horrors of Altamont." Portland Mercury"A quintessential addition to any die-hard rock and roll fan's bookcase." -- Daily Vanguard
