You Can't Always Get What You Want

Sam Cutler managed the Rolling Stones at some of their major gigs in the late 1960s and has now decided it's time to put to rest the myths and legends that have grown up around an infamous event in rock history - the Stones concert in which a Hell's Angel was murdered in front of the stage while the band played on. Also included in Cutler's account are details of his life managing the Grateful Dead and portraits of other stars of the 1960s and 1970s including Janis Joplin, Pink Floyd and Eric Clapton. An exhilarating, access-all-areas rock'n'roll ride.

About the Author

"A riveting rock read." "--Sun-Herald" "Thoroughly impossible to put down." --"ABORT MAGAZINE" "[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." "[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
