Sam Cutler has worked with some of the most famous acts in Rock and Roll history, most notably as tour manager for the Rolling Stones and the Grateful Dead. Appearing on "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren' (Weeknights, 10 PM ET Fox News) the 66-year old Englishman compared the two legendary bands.

"They were wildly difference," Cutler explained. "I always tell people they're the comparative model vs. the cooperative model."

"The Rolling Stones -- super competitive, want to be number one, want to have huge albums, want to be famous, want to have their pictures everywhere," Cutler continued. "The Grateful Dead -- cooperative, they didn't really care about the media.

Mad Men season finale

jerry garciaJustin Berfield, who played the dumb but lovable brother Reese on Malcolm in the Middle, has secured the rights through his production company J2 Pictures to make a film about the life of Grateful Dead singer and guitarist Jerry Garcia, who passed away in 1995.

Whatever your opinion is of guitar jams that last seven hours, one can't deny that Garcia is a musical icon. Berfield insists they're approaching the project carefully to find the right director for the film and the right person to play Garcia. Berfield claims they've already talked to one actor, but he's not saying who it is. Hell, they could always just create a CGI actor for the role (that's Computerized Garcia Image).
