The most powerful words I have ever heard issuing forth from the mouth, heart and soul of a United States President...was when I stood front and center and not 20 yards away from William Jefferson Clinton as he delivered his first inaugural address on the Capitol Steps in January of 1993. I was closer to him than Mary Travers, Sally Field, Jann Wenner and even Jack Nicholson. His words were so simple and yet so true. "There is nothing wrong with the United States of America, that cannot be fixed by what is right with the United States of America!" He may have lied about having sex..."with that woman." He may have lied about inhaling marijuana. But on this day...and in front of the entire world, our 42nd President spoke the truth. And I, for one, still believe!

Buy the ticket, take the ride," was a favorite slogan of Hunter S. Thompson, and it largely defined both his work and his life. This full-blooded collection of his finest work for Rolling Stone showcases his roller-coaster career at the magazine that was his literary home. Jann Wenner, the gonzo journalist's friend and editor for nearly 35 years, assembles articles from Thompson's infamous run for sheriff of Aspen on the Freak Party ticket in 1970 to his final piece on the Bush-Kerry showdown of 2004. In between, Thompson dices out the 1972 presidential campaign (a miracle of journalism under pressure); spills plenty of ink over Richard Nixon, his bête noire; and encounters Muhammad Ali, Bill Clinton, and the Super Bowl. Here too is a lengthy excerpt from his renowned masterpiece Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and selected correspondence between Wenner and Thompson flows throughout the book. "Thompson should be recognized for contributing some of the clearest, most bracing and fearless analysis of the p ...

Rolling Stone is a magazine published every two weeks that focuses on politics and popular culture. In 1967, Rolling Stone was founded in San Francisco, California, by Jann Wenner – who is still the magazine's chief editor – and music critic, Ralph J. Gleason. Rolling Stone was known for its musical coverage and for political reporting by the enigmatic and controversial gonzo journalist, Hunter S. Thompson. In the 1990s, the magazine changed its format to appeal to a younger readership interested in youth-oriented television shows, film actors, and popular music. This led to criticism that the magazine was emphasizing style over substance. In recent years, the magazine has resumed its traditional mix of content, including in-depth political stories. It also has expanded content to include coverage of financial and banking issues. As a result, the magazine has seen its circulation increase and its reporters invited as experts to network television programs of note.
CHAPTER 18: BANDS THAT ARE NOT IN THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has always had a measure of controversy (Cleveland?). There have been questions about some of the members of the nominating group and their agenda (writers from Rolling Stone), charges of vote tampering, charging bands exorbitant amounts of money to attend their own inductions ($25,000 for a table? Is this true?), charges of certain types of music being ignored by the organization, and questions about where the annual induction ceremonies are held. This list is comprised of bands that have been snubbed by the organization, for whatever reasons. I started with the least unbelievable and ended with the ones that I thought should be obvious choices. 10. The Monkees- I know all the arguments against them; they didn’t write their own songs (untrue after 1967, although they still used other writers), they didn’t play their own songs (untrue by 1967), and they were no-talent hacks (in 1967 they outsold the Beatles ...

Love this letter *** Jagger sent to Rolling Stone mag founder Jann Wenner back in 1981:
Rolling Stone is not just about music, but also about the things and attitudes that the music embraces. ~ Jann Wenner, Editor, the first edition
Fear and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Main article The book for which Thompson gained most of his fame had its genesis during the research for Strange Rumblings in Aztlan, an exposé for Rolling Stone on the 1970 killing of the Mexican-American television journalist Rubén Salazar. Salazar had been shot in the head at close range with a tear gas canister fired by officers of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department during the National Chicano Moratorium March against the Vietnam War. One of Thompson's sources for the story was Oscar Zeta Acosta, a prominent Mexican-American activist and attorney. Finding it difficult to talk in the racially tense atmosphere of Los Angeles, Thompson and Acosta decided to travel to Las Vegas, and take advantage of an assignment by Sports Illustrated to write a 250-word photograph caption on the Mint 400 motorcycle race held there. What was to be a short caption quickly grew into something else entirely. Thompson first submitted to Sports Illustrated a manuscript of 2,5 ...

Flippo, who has served as CMT and CMT.com's editorial director since 2001, died Wednesday in Nashville following a lengthy illness at age 69. At Rolling Stone Magazine in the 1970s, Flippo gained a national reputation as a country music authority and contributed liner notes to landmark albums such as the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's Will the Circle Be Unbroken and also Wanted! The Outlaws featuring Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Jessi Colter and Tompall Glaser.

Today's Dylan quote, from Jann Wenner's interview from 2007. Wenner: "Modern Times" is not lighthearted. It seems not distant from "Highway 61" or earlier records where you describe a difficult situation in the country, but nothing in this record indicates anything has gotten better – indeed it's gotten worse. Dylan: Well, America's a different place than it was when those other records where you describe a different situation were made. It was more like Europe used to be, where every different territory was different – every county was different , every state was different. A different culture, different architecture, different food. You could go a hundred miles in the States, and it would be like going from Stalingrad to Paris or something, It's just not that way anymore. It's all homogenized. People wear the same clothes, eat the same food, think the same things. Commentary: This is very interesting, I think. What it really says, is that Europe has become more like USA, more homogenized. While the ...
Rolling Stone recently released a massive Bob Dylan issue, with lists, facts, bla-bla-bla, but also all the interviews Dylan's given to the magazine through the years. As your guide through the tumultuous culture of our time, I will comfort you with some semblance of stability by daily, chosen quotes from Rolling Stone's Dylan interviews, from the one in 1969 by Jann Wenner, all the way to and including the 2012 interview by Mikal Gilmore. Thus, from 1969: Wenner: I'm sure you read the reviews of "Nashville Skyline". Everybody remarks on the change of your singing style. Dylan: When I stopped smoking, my voice changed ... so drastically. I couldn't believe it myself. I tell you, you stop smoking those cigarettes and you'll be able to sing like Caruso. Comment: I can verify this. I used to smoke cigarettes to and fro, but ended this filthy habit in 2005, when my beloved sister Suzy was ill with cancer. (Had my last cigarette in a bar in a harbor in the Virgin Islands.) Since then my voice has improved mark ...

"Rolling Stone was created so Jann Wenner could meet John Lennon. It still exists so Jann can ski with John Mellencamp." -- Chuck Klosterman
From a recent interview with Chuck Klosterman: KF: If you had one album to convince Jann Wenner of KISS' brilliance, would you pick "The Elder." CK: Why would I possibly aspire to do this? I don't care what Jann Wenner thinks about KISS. Look - there are some really smart people who work at Rolling Stone. But that magazine was created so that Jann Wenner could meet John Lennon, and it continues to exist so that Jann Wenner can go skiing with John Mellencamp.

Reading my new Rolling Stone aka the anti-Romney propaganda machine. I find it amazing that on matters of ACTUAL PRESIDENTIAL IMPORTANCE, RS founder Jann Wenner wrote a desperate and pleading 2009 house editorial wondering why Obama was so incompetent regarding the BP oil disaster. Then they had at least one big article a couple years back about how he COMPLETELY lied about his medical marijuana policy and was making the most arrests and drug busts of ANY president, EVER. Add in their early expressed frustratiions over his failure to follow his own Guantanamo Bay policy and the fact that he surged in Afghanistan and wouldn't effect a pullout there faster than 2014. ALL MAJOR ISSUES TO THE LEFT. But when election year came around, all was forgiven with NO explanation from Jann or anyone below him, Obama was back flashing his pearly whites on the cover as the magazine endorsed him and EVERY *** ISSUE has an attack on Mitt Romney's personal finances or religion. Yet how DARE we wonder about Obama's college ...

Watching RnR Hall of Fame induction, Steve Marriott, you finally made it. Now if only Jann Wenner and his voting cast of *** would get around to Paul Rodgers..
Wiki: "Jann Wenner, who co-founded the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation in 1983, has endured quite a bit of controversy during his career as it relates to his involvement in the organization. Fans and supporters of several artists, which include Chicago, Deep Purple, The Doobie Brothers, KISS, The Monkees, Electric Light Orchestra, Yes, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Motörhead, Jethro Tull, Linda Ronstadt, The Marvelettes, Chubby Checker, Mary Wells, The B-52s, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Rush, Dokken, Warrant, Ratt, Queensryche, Mötley Crüe, Journey, Judas Priest, Dio, Foreigner, Iron Maiden, The Guess Who, Bachman–Turner Overdrive, The Moody Blues and Jan and Dean, have placed a large amount of blame on Wenner for keeping them out of the Hall of Fame. They claim Wenner has lobbied to keep them from consideration and nomination to the Hall based on personal bias and a dislike for their music." Never waste your time with RS or the "hall".

From the 1970 interview with Jann Wenner of Rolling Stone Magazine.
© GOD CODE PEACE by Pepper Chomsky - All rights reserved John Lennon was quickly becoming aware of British Intelligence from circumstances surrounding Brian Epstein’s so called “suicide”. On that day, sequestered without telephone contact and within the confines of an adhoc ashram in North Wales, Lennon and the Beatles were being guided by Maharishi to "Just be happy", an emotion that entirely did not ring true. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who became world famous and exceptionally wealthy as the founder of Transcendental Meditation, had bouts in an earlier career as a used car salesman. The Beatles later alleged that he was a fraud and a sexual pervert. Epstein's suicide fallout sent the Beatles scurrying for safe-haven, Paul to a secluded farm in Scotland, and John to Bed-ins in Amsterdam and Montreal, and eventually landing in the USA. Upon entering the United States, John Lennon was purposely inconvenienced and aggravated by continual surveillance and humiliation from US and British forces. The FBI a ...

Letters of Note: 'I AM the boss' 1982 correspondence between Rolling Stone co-founder Jann Wenner and Annie Liebovitz
Brilliant! "I AM the boss." Rolling Stone co-founder Jann Wenner spells it out to photographer Annie Leibovitz:
ha...yeah, i'll take that over Jann Wenner.
The new album is so good I bet Jann S. Wenner might even buy a copy.
Last night I listened intently to the entire new Beach Boys album, That's Why God Made The Radio, three times in a row. That probably makes 30 listenings in the past two weeks. It's an absolute masterpiece, one of their finest, the best new record I've heard in a very long time, and I strongly suggest that everyone fire up their Spotify and give it a listen. If I was Jann Wenner I'd give it 5 stars, easy. It deserves 6. The perfect music backdrop for summer.
This is an excerpt from a 1968 interview Pete Townshend did with Rolling Stone Magazine founder Jann Wenner
It's the birthday of the music journalist and cultural critic Greil Marcus, born in San Francisco (1945). After he graduated from Berkeley, he got a job writing reviews for Rolling Stone Magazine. He was frustrated, though, because most reviewers just wanted to talk about lyrics, and he wanted to go deeper. He wanted to write about music the way Pauline Kael wrote about movies. So Rolling Stone's founder, Jann Wenner, made him an editor instead. In the decades since, he's written numerous volumes of rock music criticism and other criticism, including A New Literary History of America (2009). It's a collection of essays — nearly 1,100 pages long — which he co-edited with Werner Sollors. The book covers Colonial days to the election of Barack Obama. His most recent book is The Doors: A Lifetime of Listening to Five Mean Years (2011), and a collection of his interviews, Conversations with Greil Marcus, is due out this year (2012). He's also at work on "an intimate history of rock 'n' roll." Source: The W ...

Jann Wenner, a previous editor of Rolling Stone, estimated that Hunter S. Thompson wrote about 450,000 words for the magazine throughout his over 3 decades there, and I fear that after tonight, I will have read them all.
Who cares if Axl Rose didn't go to the Rock Hall. That's what Jann Wenner gets. He should've had Geddy Lee take Axl's place.
