" Rock out and read this landmark book celebrating Rolling Stones 50th birthday. Documenting the magazine's rise from humble beginnings in a tiny office in San Francisco, the book includes interviews with artists such as Bob Dylan, the Beastie Boys and Adele, images from iconic photographers including Annie Leibovitz and sparking prose from the likes of Hunter S. Thompson. Each page makes it easy to see why every budding musician dreams of gracing its cover." * Daily Mail *

Founder Jann Wenner provides an informative introduction and the book highlights the journey music, politics, and culture in general have taken in each of the decades from the 60s to our current 10s.
I was particularly impressed with a John Lennon interview from the early 70s. He was very candid and offered his views with a no bullshit filter.
The 1976 photo spread of The Family, by Richard Avedon, was also very evocative. Lengthy excerpts of articles and interviews with people's reflections are very interesting to read. The cover jacket is lush and also has a black Rolling Stones banner.
This book pretty much sums up the last half of the 20th Century & the first 15 years of our current millennium.
“When Rolling Stone started, music was the only medium available to young people to express themselves and share ideas. Now everything is open to young people and their concerns and values: television, newspapers, books, every medium imaginable.”
