Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Rolling Stone's brand of impressionistic journalism has been fairly steady over the 20 years of the magazine's existence. This omnibus features Hunter Thompson on local politics in Aspen, Colo., Tom Wolfe on fashion, Greil Marcus on Woodstock. Interviews with Bob Dylan, Sting, Mick Jagger, John Lennon, and pieces on Stevie Wonder, the Grateful Dead and Michael Jackson lift the art of fanzine writing to new heights. For reportage of great social significance, there are articles on Kent State, Charles Manson and the Karen Silkwood case. Among the 135 pictures are Richard Avedon's minimalist photos of politicians and Ralph Steadman's Watergate cartoons. This coffee-table album is for fans. BOMC and QPBC selections.

From Library Journal

It's difficult to believe that 20 years have passed since Rolling Stone published its first issue. But here is RS editor Wenner's "impressionistic chronology" of the period, an anthology of the best the magazine has offered: articles on Charles Manson, Watergate, Karen Silkwood, and the Sex Pistols written by the likes of Hunter S. Thompson and Tom Wolfe; major interviews with Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger, John Lennon; along with 135 photos, by photographers including Annie Leibovitz. A reminder that RS was never just a music magazine, but rather one at the cutting edge of our time. Highly recommended and a bargain. Rosellen Brewer, Monterey Cty. Lib., Seaside, Cal.

Format: Hardcover
Read it for nostalgia or read it for enlightenment. A collection of major articles published in Rolling Stone between 1965 and 1987. Several are interviews, including Keith Moon, John Lennon, Mick Jagger, Sting, Bob Dylan, and Jack Nicholson. Then there are the "following the celebrity around for a day" pieces, and the political and social commentary, including that of Hunter S. Thompson. It's just a survey of Rolling Stone-ness for 20 years. Excellent journalism, and that goes for the substantial collection of photos here too.
