A Tale of Two Stories: Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone magazine

Side Tracks with Rusty Pate

Release Date: 06/30/2018

In 2017, Rolling Stone magazine celebrated its 50 th anniversary. To commemorate the occasion, many tributes took place. Two of the most exhaustive were the documentary “Rolling Stone: Stories from the Edge,” directed by Alex Gibney, and “Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone,” written by Joe Hagan.

I watched the movie and read the book, noticing some points that I felt deserved a closer examination.

As always, thank you to Frontier Folk Nebraska for use of their song “Cut You Loose” as our theme music.
