For the past fifty years, Rolling Stone has been a leading voice in journalism, cultural criticism, and – above all – music. Now you can reminisce the past five decades through a new landmark book which 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… some of which we share with you here.
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.
50 Years of Rolling Stone: The Music, Politics and People that Changed Our Culture by Rolling Stone and Jann S. Wenner is available via Abrams & Chronicle Books, priced at £45.
