"Sam Cutler was the personal tour manager for the Rolling Stones at some of their major gigs including the never to be repeated free concert in Hyde Park in London. And he was the man left behind after the Altamont concert descended into hell. Left behind with $300 to make peace with the Hells Angels, the Grateful Dead who had supported the concert, the various mobsters and organisations who had taken an overt interest in the event, and the people of America. There has never been an official investigation into events at Altamont and those involved have never before spoken on record about it. Sam Cutler has decided that it is time to defeat the myths and legends that have grown up around this infamous event in rock history and for the first time reveal the truth. Sam survived Altamont and went on to live the ultimate rock dream. He managed tours for the Grateful Dead--the world's most successful live band--for years and has been involved with the production and touring of many bands over the last four decades including Janice Joplin, The Band and the Allman Brothers. He dropped out for a while, living in India and came to appreciate world sounds and the Goa Trance. Spain was his next stop and he became involved in the Ibiza Sound and scene which continues to attract allcomers to this day. This is a tell-all, behind-the-scenes rock memoir from someone who has seen it all, and tried most things himself"--Provided by the publisher of a previous edition.… (more)
