Exanded Apps have just released "You Can't Always Get What You Want", an "interactive book and audiobook app recounting the memoirs of The Rolling Stone’s and The Grateful Dead’s manager, Sam Cutler." It includes Cutler's time with the Stones and the Grateful Dead in the late 60's and early 70's, and covers "the infamous concert at Altamont Speedway, where a young man named Meredith Hunter was stabbed to death by a Hells Angel in front of the stage."

The app includes the complete book and audiobook, three 40 minute interviews with the author, and a 20 page photo gallery with "never before published photos of the Stones and the Dead".

The Rolling Stone said of the book, ""[Cutler's] memoir of his time with first the Stones and then the Grateful Dad brings to life hippie-era delights (lots of acid) and an encroaching darkness . . . he unleashes one killer road tale after another."

Be sure to pick "You Can't Always Get What You Want" up if you are a Stones or a Dead fan. And if you can wait til August, it'll be on sale for $5.99 to celebrate Jerry Garcia's birthday.
