1st issue Of ‘Rolling Stone’ Magazine Published (1967)
On this day in 1967, the first issue of Rolling Stone magazine is published. The brainchild of Jann Wenner, a 21-year-old San Francisco native who dropped out of college to pursue his dream of starting a music magazine, Rolling Stone was originally conceived as a way to document the rapidly expanding counterculture movement of the 1960s. In its earliest incarnation, Rolling Stone functioned as both a magazine and a newspaper, covering everything from political news to sports to popular culture. In the decades since its inception, Rolling Stone has become one of the most respected voices in American journalism, winning multiple awards and frequently tackling controversial topics. Although it has undergone many changes over the years, Rolling Stone remains one of the most iconic publications in the world.
