Sam Cutler

As the rotors created an ungodly racket above, I sat there crammed into the helicopter with the Stones, their management and various hangers-on. What the hell had happened? The free concert at Altamont was meant to be a peak in the career of the Rolling Stones. It was intended to be a celebration of not just the music, but the thriving peace and love counter-culture of the sixties. Rather it had descended into a bloody chaotic mess of violence, death and despair. And we were on the run.’

Sam Cutler has been at the centre of some of the most exciting developments in the music industry, and has worked with the two largest grossing live artists in the world, the Rolling Stones and the Grateful Dead. Listen as he shares his titillating stories, now captured in a behind-the-scenes tell-all rock memoir.
