Rolling Stone Stuck in the 1960s?
Here's a terrific article about how fossilized Rolling Stone
has become, even as the icons of that decade show some growth and humility:
"Do you think it's gloomy on the horizon," Editor Jann Wenner asks Bob Dylan.
"In what sense do you mean," Dylan replies.
"Bob, come on," Wenner goads.
"No, you come on. In what sense do you mean that?" Dylan demands.
Wenner tries again: "We seem to be hell-bent on destruction. Do you worry about global warming?"
"Where's the global warming?" Dylan asks. "It's freezing here."
Jack Nicholson: "I'm a patriotic fella and this factionalism today isn't to my liking. I'm incapable of hating a president of the United States."
Stewart Brand, LSD tripper and inventor of the Whole Earth Catalog: "Almost everything we tried either failed hideously or didn't pan out. Communes failed, drugs went nowhere, free love led pretty much to AIDS. A lot of people thought Mao Tse Tung was a hero."
