Former Tour Manager For Grateful Dead And Rolling Stones Compares Bands (Video)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Aug 30th 2010 11:43AM
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. I think the Grateful Dead somehow captured the zeitgeist of the 60s and 70, of that generation who were looking for fresh versions what constituted liberty and freedom."

Like CBS's other medical drama for this TV season, 'Three Rivers,' 'Miami Medical' is very earnest and filled with moments that strive for poignancy. The fact that it doesn't succeed is less a reflection on the network than the creators. At least CBS gets credit for realizing that 'Miami Medical' was less that the sum of its aspirations and planted it in the little viewed Friday, 10 PM time slot.

Al Franken IS Mick Jagger, in this clip from ... Solid Gold!

Well, they finally settled that Norm Coleman vs. Al Franken race in Minnesota. So I thought this would be a good opportunity to show Franken in another time, impersonating Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger on Solid Gold in the 80s. Partner Tom Davis is doing Keith Richards. I wonder if Franken would have won if Coleman had just run this video on a continuous loop on his web site for a year.

I want to rob Mick Jagger

mick jaggerRolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger may be playing a key role in a new comedy for ABC about a group of guys in New York who decide to rob a celebrity. That celebrity may be Mick Jagger, if negotiations pan out.

Originally, the title of the sitcom was I Want to Rob Jeff Goldblum, but Jeff is working on his own pilot project for NBC and was never attached to the project (although, I totally like the idea of him in that role). The creators turned to Mick Jagger, but his name won't be in the title and he will only appear in a few scenes.

I totally dig this idea for a show. I think they could keep it going by picking different celebrities to rob. I'd like to see them try to rob Patrick Swayze, Carol Channing, and Frankie Muniz. Who would you like to see robbed?

Super Bowl XL: The Rolling Stones

by Michael Sciannamea, posted Feb 5th 2006 11:20PM

The excitement that is rock and roll, by and large, has always had difficulty coming across on television. The television screen puts limitations on the visuals of a rock and roll show, especially the feedback the crowd gives the band when they're playing well. Plus, rock and roll is meant to play loud, and no matter how loud you put the volume up on your television, most of the time it just doesn't translate.

However, there have been a few times where rock and roll has transcended the television screen and brought across truly memorable moments. Of course, when The Beatles appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, it was such an historic event that what you heard didn't matter--it was only what you saw. A few years ago, U2 played at halftime of the Super Bowl, and again, although the sound was a bit murky, their performance was so mesmerizing that people still talk about.

This year's Super Bowl halftime show featured The Rolling Stones. As big a fan as I am (I've seen them live over 20 times), I was curious to see how they would come across on television. They've been appearing on TV for over 40 years, so they know the drill, and Mick Jagger certainly knows how to play to the cameras.

ABC puts a 5-second delay on Super Bowl

janet jackson super bowlJust in case Mick Jagger or, God forbid, Keith Richards decides to flash us, ABC was already planning to put a 5-10 second delay on the halftime show. Now it will also be ready in case Matt Hasselbeck decides to moon the camera. For the first time in the Super Bowl's 40-year history, the entire event will be broadcast with a five-second delay. That includes pre-game, game, and post-game coverage. Gee, I wonder what that's all about. It couldn't be the thing that wouldn't die, AKA Janet Jackson's accidental or intentional boob reveal during the halftime show two years ago, could it? Apparently ABC doesn't want the $550,000 in fines that CBS had to pay for that major nip slip. Last year, FOX refused to put a tape delay on its broadcast of the Super Bowl. FOX network said it was treating the game "as a news event".

The Parents Television Council publicly praised ABC for going with the delay. The group president said, "ABC has wisely decided to ensure that this year's Super Bowl is not hijacked by raunchy performers as it was in 2004."

Now that the sex will be taken care of, what about all the shots of the coaches and players yelling curse words? Come on! We may not be able to hear them but we know they're not yelling about figs.

Older Stones fans welcome at Super Bowl

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 7th 2006 10:23AM
Remember how the NFL put an age limit on the "crowd" members who would rock out to the Rolling Stones during the Super Bowl haltime show? Yeah, that's been lifted. The original casting call was for groups of people between the ages of 18 and 45 to play the role of the crowd on the football field as the Stones perform. Organizers of the performance said they called for younger dancers because the role was physically demanding. People had to run on and off the field real quick. And they had to act like they're crazy for the Stones. Not surprisingly, the NFL heard from a lot of die-hard fans over the age of 45 who can totally rock out to the Stones like the younger crowd. So, they lifted the age limit. Or, maybe it was all the press they were getting over the casting call. Anyway, now you only have to be 18 years old or older to rock out to the Rolling Stones during the halftime show at the Super Bowl in February 5 in Detroit. All you old folks can sign up here.

Casting call for young Stones fans

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 4th 2006 3:13PM
Here's a way for you and 20 of your closest friends to go to the Super Bowl: act crazy about the Rolling Stones. The company that is planning the halftime performance for the Super Bowl just put out a casting call for 2,000 people to be the crowd on the football field when the Stones perform. The only catch? You've gotta be younger than 45. That leaves out a good chunk of the Stones fan base, doesn't it? The halftime planners say they put the age limit on the participants because the role of the crowd is physically demanding because people will have to sing, dance, and act like they're all-out nutso for the Rolling Stones. Um, there are plenty of people over the age of 45 who do that whenever the Stones go on tour. I think the real reason is that the planners know many of the Stones fans are older, like the band, but old isn't cool! They want the Stones and halftime in general to appear young and hip. That's the key demographic, baby! Anyway, if you are between 18 and 45, have 20 friends who are willing to shake their booty, and happen to be in Detroit on February 5th, you can sign up to audition here.
