MUSIC MAGAZINE DEBUTED ON THIS DAY IN 1967

rolling stone first issue

Rolling Stone was founded in San Francisco, CA by Jann Wenner, who is still the magazine’s chief editor, and music critic, Ralph J. Gleason. The cover featured a
photo of John Lennon from his movie, How I Won The War.

Wenner borrowed $7,500 from his family members and his soon-to-be wife, Michell Palmer to start the publication. The magazine was named after the Muddy Waters
1950 song “Rollin’ Stone”.
