Sticky fingers: the life and times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone magazine

Hagan, Joe, 1971- author

The story of Jann Wenner, Rolling Stone's founder, editor, and publisher, is an insider's trip through the backstages of storied concert venues, rock-star hotel rooms, and the political ups and downs of the latter half of the twentieth century, right up through the digital age: connecting the counterculture of Haight Ashbury to the 'straight world. Supplemented by a cache of extraordinary documents and letters from Wenner's personal archives, 'Sticky Fingers' is the story of a mercurial, wide-eyed rock and roll fan of ambiguous sexuality but unambiguous ambition who reinvents youth culture, marketing the libertine world of the late sixties counterculture in a stylish, glossy package that would stand for decades as a testament to the cultural power of American youth
