Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine

We rated this book:

$29.95

The groundbreaking magazine known as Rolling Stone burst into the pop culture zeitgeist in November 1967. The story of its founder, Jann Wenner, is as integral as his creation. Jann Wenner aspired to get as close to the elite as possible while yet keeping himself partially hidden. The magazine’s radical roots began in San Francisco. Wenner’s fanboy love of music guided him along the way, with the aid of many talented critics and social commentators. Rolling Stone would be the voice of New Journalism, in the guise of Hunter S. Thompson and Tom Wolfe. The potent voice of the magazine would shepherd the Baby Boomer generation through the tumultuous 60s into the 70s. Wenner would rise and fall with the fortunes of the magazine, jetsetting with the rich and famous along with his lovable wife, Jane. The marriage would witness similar ebbs and flows. The magazine is still here 50 years later, going with the flow, but is its soul still the same?
