Wanna see my smilin' face, on the cover of the Rollin' Stone.

Sir Elton John.
The Beatles
Altamont music festival.
Jim Morrison of The Doors
How cool are these vintage copies of Rolling Stone magazine? I'm a big fan of Rolling Stone--not just for the music, but for the many other articles on movies, lifestyle and politics. Rolling Stone has come a long way throughout the years. I recently bought a book, Psychotic Reactions and Carburetor Dung, by legendary rock critic Lester Bangs. 
Lester wrote for Rolling Stone as well as Creem Magazine and is credited for being a leading influence in rock music criticism.

The title of this post comes from "The Cover of Rolling Stone" by Dr. Hook. 
There is a scene in Almost Famous where William tells the band they are going to be on 
the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, the lead singer, Jeff, starts singing a verse of this
song and they all celebrate together. 

If you haven't seen Almost Famous, go watch it. Now.
