Why Rolling Stone?

The legendary Rolling Stone magazine turned 50 in 2017. It has been an essential guide for music news and criticism for millions of music lovers throughout the decades. There are many terrific on-line and print music magazines out there (Pitchfork, Spin, Consequence of Sound, NME, American Songwriter, Paste, Stereogum etc.), but Rolling Stone is the granddaddy. And its lists touch on all genres of popular music, so there’s something for everyone.

This blog is not just a tribute to the music of the 80s and 90s, it is our love letter to a great magazine.
