Nabb1: Wow.  Let's see, I let my subscription lapse in 1996 or 1997 when they put Britney Spears on the cover in her school girl outfit, which would have put him in kindergarten at the time.


By strange coincidence, I started subscribing to Rolling Stone when they put Britney Spears on the cover in her school girl outfit.

I hope this doesn't upset the 250 people who still read Rolling Stone.

Mark my words: Gus Wenner will confound his critics, and leave Rolling Stone to his children.

Not the company, mind you, but the April 2017 issue begging for money. That thing will be a collector's item after the company goes bankrupt.

Just when Jann Wenner was trying to prove he had a soul by letting Rush into the Jann Wenner Memorial Hall of Musicians Jann Wenner Thinks Are Cool, he goes and reminds me why it's been over ten years since I've read RS.

\I know you *think* it's the RRHOF, but my name for it is much closer to the truth.

You could put Rolling Stone on a box of shiat and it'd sell well and run a vast range of critical reviews, from "Cutting edge social commentary to" "what the fark this is just a shoebox filled with shiat and the name Rolling Stone stamped on it." If it was me I'd sell it to a group of corporate dickwads, rake in enough cash to be independently wealthy and then buy my kids a dinosaur to ride around and eat peasants like us.

I don't think it is nepotism.  In the couple of weeks he was working there, he really out-shined the folks that had be there for 10, 20, 30 years.  Son or not, he's got the makings of modern day Randolf Hearst.

/Looks really humble too....so there's that

"Gus Wenner. Peter Doocy. Cinderella stories. Outta nowhere. Former college jagoffs, now, about to become media champions."

People said the same thing when I took over my Dad's dealership right out of college.  But I learned a lot in my fraternity and was completely prepared to handle a dealership.  Someday, my son will run the dealership.  He'll be able to say with pride "my Dad owns a dealership."

Saw Thompson give a talk at an out-of-business ski resort in Montana back in the mid 80s.

He was being his usual disconnected self - drinking Wild Turkey/smoking with a cigarette holder -but just as he was getting up to leave I yelled out
'What's Jann Wenner REALLY like???' and his head spun around and he was starting to.. just.... go... off when his handlers hustled him out of the room.

CSB.

NobleHam: He's managing the website, not editing the magazine, so I really don't care.


If he knows a little html his dad probably thinks he's some kind of dangerously powerful computer warlock.

How do you know he isn't some wunderkind? With a pedigree like his. maybe he's been writing like Thompson since he was knee-high to Tim Burton.

I think it's a good idea. Rock is a young person's game and they can finally scrape the corpse that has been grinding out monthly U2 updates and putting Christina Aguilera on the cover bi-annually for the last decade out its aeron and get to reporting what young people are listening to and what avenues they are using to discover music.
