You Can\'t Always Get What You Want...*****A must have!!!! by Schoeps. "This app is great, got me through a long plane ride, I didn't want to get off the plane!...If you care about rock and roll, you must get this!"
"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 Can\'t 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." -By Glen Boyd, Reviewer, BLOG CRITICS.ORG
\"Altamont was a fundamental pivot in \'60s history, the real day that the music-the dream-died. How it went down has generated more books and more nonsense than almost any other event in the era. Sam Cutler was in the middle of it all, and I\'m buying his version. It\'s not always pretty, but it\'s the truth.\" -By Dennis McNally, Author of books on THE GRATEFUL DEAD and THE BEATS
ROLLING STONE reviewer Brian Hiatt states, "His memoir of his time with first the Stones and then the Grateful Dead brings to life hippie-era delights (lots of acid) and an encroaching darkness...he unleashes one killer road tale after another"
You Can't Always Get What You Want is a magnificent account of the life and times of Sam Cutler with the Rolling Stones, then the Grateful Dead in the late 1960s and early 1970s. As tour manager for the Stones he played a pivotal role at a watershed moment in American history: the infamous concert at Altamont Speedway, where a young man named Meredith Hunter was stabbed to death by a Hells Angel in front of the stage.
There has never been an official investigation into what actually happened at Altamont. Cutler has recorded for posterity the political build up to the free concert, and the aftermath of the fateful occurrences there. The release of You Can't Always Get What You Want is intended to finally "set the record straight" and his lucid backstage and onstage account is undoubtedly the book's centerpiece. But, he adds, "there's more to my story than Altamont. This is the story of my life on the road with two of the world's greatest bands."
Cutler is a humorous writer, selfless and unfazed by the antics of the legendary musicians whose touring lives he looked after. While the Stones took their roles of cosseted rock stars for granted Cutler's job consisted of dealing with riot police, groupies, drug dealers, mobsters, and promoters. Rock fans will love Cutler's in-depth descriptions of his friendships with the likes of rock legends Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and former Pink Floyd frontman Syd Barrett. Cutler shows the colorful personalities of performers, and provides a fascinating look at the logistical challenges of touring the bands. He includes a rapturous account of what is known as the "Winnipeg Express," the train tour in 1970 that carried an assortment of the most talented musicians of the time.
