Sam Cutler is the former tour manager for the Rolling Stones and the Grateful Dead.
"[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

"A riveting rock read." "--Sun-Herald"
"Thoroughly impossible to put down." --"ABORT MAGAZINE"
"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"
"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.)
"A quintessential addition to any die-hard rock and roll fan's bookcase." --Daily Vanguard Online
