Good well done and informative doc about how music and culture blended our times!
13 November 2017 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

I was never a faithful reader of "Rolling Stone" magazine still I knew that it was much more than a music or rock n' roll magazine. I saw many covers and bought a few to read about entertainment and politics. And this recent "HBO" doc done a fine job to tell the 50 years about the times and highlights of the publication. Interviews and footage are provided to take you back in time to memorable moments of music, culture, events and happenings. It tells the story of how Jann Wenner created an empire.

Stories showcased were the rise of Tina Turner and black music and how times changed with music and politics and how it blended culture and race. The death of John Lennon, the rise of rap and the coming of Bill Clinton along with the religious scandals and Trump being elected were all shown as being some of the publication's most remembered printed stories.

Overall good doc that showed how a publication reported and tied everything together from social commentary and opinion to blend with music, style, culture, race and politics proving that each is different still each theme and topic came full circle together to affect the readers life and daily thoughts.
