For the past 50 years, the covers of Rolling Stone have depicted the icons of popular culture—from John Lennon, Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, Madonna, and Steve Martin to Rihanna, Louis C.K., Adele, Radiohead, and Barack Obama—cementing their legendary and influential status. No other magazine has the illustrious history and prestige of having defined popular culture from the birth of rock and roll to the present.
This fantastic collection is newly revised and updated to include the covers from all 50 years of Rolling Stone history. With an updated introduction by Jann S. Wenner as well as new excerpts from the magazine and quotes from photographers and their celebrity subjects, this nostalgic journey down the memory lane of music, entertainment, and politics is irresistible.
