Description

Product Description

For the past fifty years, Rolling Stone has been a leading voice in journalism, cultural criticism, and—above all—music. This landmark book documents the magazine’s rise to prominence as the voice of rock and roll and a leading showcase for era-defining photography. From the 1960s to the present day, the book offers a decade-by-decade exploration of American music and history. Interviews with rock legends—Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger, Kurt Cobain, Bruce Springsteen, and more—appear alongside iconic photographs by Baron Wolman, Annie Leibovitz, Mark Seliger, and other leading image-makers. With feature articles, excerpts, and exposés by such quintessential writers as Hunter S. Thompson, Matt Taibbi, and David Harris, this book is an irresistible and essential keepsake of the magazine that has defined American music for generations of readers.

About the Author

My husband bought this for me as a Mother''s Day gift after hearing it promoted on NPR. I am so glad he did! It is quite possibly one of my favorite books I''ve ever owned. While it mainly contains (great) photos, it also features write ups/excerpts from their best pieces over the years. I read it cover to cover the day it arrived and have flipped through it several times after. It is truly the perfect book for those who love music/ Rolling Stone Magazine!

This large, coffee table style hardcover book sums up some of the best articles and most iconic photos in the popular magazine.

Founder Jann Wenner provides an informative introduction and the book highlights the journey music, politics, and culture in general have taken in each of the decades from the 60s to our current 10s.

I was particularly impressed with a John Lennon interview from the early 70s. He was very candid and offered his views with a no bullshit filter.

The 1976 photo spread of The Family, by Richard Avedon, was also very evocative. Lengthy excerpts of articles and interviews with people''s reflections are very interesting to read. The cover jacket is lush and also has a black Rolling Stones banner.

This book pretty much sums up the last half of the 20th Century & the first 15 years of our current millennium.

Wow! I couldn''t believe that some troglodyte had complained there were "too many photos." This is an ART book, hello? A coffee table book? The photos are the best we have over a half century. The paper quality, the color separations, are nonpareil. Fact is, I can barely lift this book, it weighs so heavy, above my lap.
I look forward to reading all the articles, many of which I''ve read before. There''s always something new in retrospect. We all read Jann Wenner''s magazine as kids and now adults, and this compendium takes us through a half century of our raucous lives.

Got my copy yesterday and I''ve been through the whole thing twice already.
I''ve been a subscriber for about 35 of these 50 years and this (very large) coffee table book is an awesome tribute to the legacy of the magazine. I appreciate the backstories and the reprinted items as well as the larger than life photos from a collection of artists without equal.
It also makes me miss the years of the big format magazine.
Not to forget - RS has been home to some of the finest writers of their respective generations. From Cameron Crowe, to HST, PJ O''Rourke, Mikal Gilmore and Matt Taibbi. I am very thankful the latter two are still writing for them now - Gilmore''s piece on Chuck Berry was absolutely amazing and Taibbi''s political and financial reporting is the best in the business.
Cheers to 50 years.

My wife and I have been very longtime readers of Rolling Stone and I surprised her with this book for her birthday. It is hard to tell which of us has enjoyed it the most. Since Rolling Stone is being sold (RIP Rolling Stone as we know it), get this before it goes out of print - you will not be disappointed.

I have been a reader and fan of Rolling Stone since it began. Great articles and reviews on music. Excellent political and environmental writing. I was very disappointed by this compilation. Most of the large format is taken up by full page photos. Very little reprinting of the great writing. I would have preferred far less in the way of photos and far more writing and even including of reviews of some of the great records. Too much fluff for me. I sold my copy less than 6 months after getting it. I don’t recommend it.
