The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine
A portrait of the founder of "Rolling Stone" magazine places his life and achievements against a backdrop of the music, culture, and politics of the late twentieth century. Hagan tells how Wenner partnered with rock luminaries to manufacture an unforgettable cultural mythology in words and images every other week for five decades. Rolling Stone magazine began as a scrappy rebellion, reinvented youth culture, and marketed the libertine world of late-sixties San Francisco in a stylish, glossy package that became a locus of influence, access, and headline-making news. Wenner was a wide-eyed rock-and-roll fan of ambiguous sexuality but unambiguous ambition whose bottomless appetite for music, drugs, sexual liberation, and political provocation epitomized a generation.
