Rolling Stone Magazine

Everyone may have at one time or another seen or read an issue of this magazine. This magazine is a US-based magazine devoted to all things music and music culture, and politics. Almost every musician since the beginning of time has at one time or more then once gotten their image on the cover of this magazine. Thia magazine was founded in San Francisco in 1967 by Jann Wellner and music critic Ralph J. Gleason. In the 1990s, this magazine changed it's format slightly to appeal to a younger audience.

When this magazine first started, it mainly reported on the hippie counterculture world of Haight-Ashbury, and they came in newspaper format. Rolling Stone had come under fire for discussing musicians that ahd previously been ignored, such as OutKast, Queen, Radiohead, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, The Beach Boys, Nirvana, Weezer, 2Pac.

For many years, they have maintained a main site where you can listen to some songs by some of the artists that have been on the cover, download songs onto your MP3s, read articles, read blogs, read reviews of albums and artists, and even read biographies about different artists. And if social media is your thing, they also have a page on Facebook, Twitter and MySpace.

Some people have appeared on the cover many times. Here are just some of those people:

  1. Issue 1: John Lennon
