Sam Cutler literally wrote the book on touring with rock stars. Putting on shows for bands like Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, the Grateful Dead, Eric Claption’s band Blind Faith, and the Rolling Stones, he became a key player in the newly emerging rock and roll era of the 60s. With modest beginnings at pub gigs, eventually 100 people grew to 500, then 5000 and then exploded in to 500,000 when The Rolling Stones played Hyde Park. Sam lived the highs and lows of touring with rock stars, most notably as tour manager when The Stones headlined the infamous Altamont Free Concert, where Meredith Hunter was stabbed metres from the band. We spoke to Sam about his life on the road and the inner workings of rock and rolls most famous bands.
