RS 40th anniversary issue: Man, the Summer Of Love sure was white

    Some really great interviews in this one — Dylan, McCartney, the Twins, Nicholson, et al., reminiscing about 1967 and other stuff — but all the interviews are of white people.

    I'd have thought the ol lefthander would have mandated a more colorful set of interviewees.

    The interviews crack me up; one of the first questions in every one is "how incredibly vital was 'Rolling Stone' back then?"

    And I love the Dylan interview -- Wenner keeps asking dopey questions and then gets pissed when Dylan doesn't give him the answer he wants.

    And yes, it was apparently the Summer of White.

    The interviews with Jack and McCartney made me love them even more. Jack came off so cool.

    Not to change the subject randomly, but I thought the cover of this issue was sweet.

    The cover was pretty cool, though I wonder what they'll do the next time they celebrate. It seems like they have three anniversaries a year, so the better get the cover-idea machine cranked up. Oh ... the gals on the ad in the back didn't look bad under that cover treatment, either.

    Counter-culture to nostalgia-culture in two generations. Check with the New Yorker to see that a magazine can evolve and remain relevant without pandering or navel-gazing.

    They were too busy cutting small gashes in their foreheads and lacing their headbands with LSD. I'm sure you understand.

    James Brown is dead. So what's your point?

    I'm pretty sure RS interviewed almost everyone here in their 30th anniversary issue. Cover is cool though, light years beyond that mess they put on their 1000th issue.

    Very true and Sly Stone isn't too coherent any more. Must be too easy for them to beat the same warhorses for interviews.
