For the past 39 years, the covers of Rolling Stone have depicted the great icons of popular culture, from John Lennon, Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, and Madonna to Steve Martin, Uma Thurman, and Richard Nixon. Often it was an appearance on the cover that launched a performers legendary status in the first place. An enormous hit when it appeared in 1997 as Rolling Stone: The Complete Covers, 1967-1997 (nearly 100,000 copies sold in all editions), this fantastic collection has been revised and updated to include the covers since 1997 up to the much-publicized 1,000th cover, slated to hit newsstands in May 2006.

With an updated introduction by Jann S. Wenner as well as new excerpts from the magazine and quotes from photographers and their celebrity subjects, this nostalgic journey down the memory lane of pop music, entertainment, and politics is irresistible.

Review: Rolling Stone 1,000 Covers: A History of the Most Influencial Magazine in Pop Culture

User Review  - Bruce Kirby - Goodreads

RS was always my guilty pop culture pleasure. I can remember many of these. Always discussion provoking, they have had one of the longest runs for a magazine. Great photography and interviews. Read full review

Review: Rolling Stone 1,000 Covers: A History of the Most Influencial Magazine in Pop Culture

User Review  - Marie - Goodreads

I read this for a story I'm writing on Rolling Stone. Though Jann Wenner's introduction is pretty bland, the information I needed is included. This serves as a good reference book to the magazine's covers and it's well-organized. Read full review
