    Really sad what’s become of this magazine. I bought it on special – year for $5 – but it just goes straight into the trash. Apparently there’s no more music but they HATE them some Republicans somethin’ awful :) You’d think they might pay a bit more attention to how horrible muzak has become, but nope. Last issue should hit my trash can in December.

    I just started reading ROLLING STONE over the past year. I am in my 40s and know the type of magazine ROLLING STONE always was. In all honestly it never drew me in. When I was younger I followed more of the main stream music which Rolling Stone did not cover. They highlighted the inventive, creative and genre bending artists – the music that defined true artists or periods in time. I was a young kid loving his pop music.

    As I aged I have changed and now love all types of music. I might have appreciated the magazine when it was in its glory if my knowledge and interests were as they are now. For me, I thoroughly enjoy each issue I receive while at the same time understand why true ROLLING STONE enthusiasts would often be shaking their head at what they see. In the recent past we had Clay Aiken on the cover. I enjoy Clay’s vocals but am the first to say he is in no way a defining voice in music. He is pure pop, recording music for pure marketability. I think old school ROLLING STONE readers could overlook such things as a Clay Aiken cover if indeed he was a trend setter or in some way representative of the new school of music. Burt he is none of these things.

    The latest issue is part old school and part new. The cover story is on the breakup of the Beatles. It is an indepth well written article that reminds one of the magazine in its prime. But then we go to the music reviews and one of the longest reviews is of the new Whitney Houston cd. This is her comeback but again – Whitney was not a trendsetter in any way. She sang commercial music and had tons of top ten hits. Yes, she had an amazing voice with great range but a musical milestone? No, not definable as a musical touching stone in music.

    So I fully understand ROLLING STONE purists who feel the magazine sold out and that their resource for musical changes, inventiveness and how music affects the world is gone. Instead we have a rougher edged ENTETAINMENT WEEKLY. I love the music reviews plus the movie reviews. My tastes are eclectic as the magazine now is. There are touches of the old magazine mixed in but it is not enough for most old schoolers. But for those new to the magazine it may just be exactly what you are looking for. The articles are indepth and vary from politics, music, movies and profiles. The reviews are excellent and cover all genres in both music and movies. As I said this issue is a great example of whether the magazine will suit you. There is an amazing article on the Beatles but we also have an indepth look at the American Idol tour. If all this appeals to you then you will love ROLLING STONE. If it fills you with anger I am sorry for thos musical purists who have lost their musical bible.

    Rolling Stone is a good magazine, if you like left of center news items that get missed in other publications, like music news about older and some newer artists, plus fun TV and Movie coverage, this is the magazine for you. However, RS is a love it or hate it thing, you know where you stand.

    As for the actual subscription, great price, first issue came five weeks after my order, all well and good. The first issue I received was the new issue just hitting news stands so I was pleased. However, the following week, I received the issue before that one, an issue I had already purchased because it was too early to recieve that issue yet, right? I have had
    RS subscriptions through Amazon before, and the same thing happened, I received the current issue first, then in the next few weeks some back issues arrived. Surely the subscription should start from the first issue you recieve and not be retroactive. This seems like a cheap way to get out of sending one or two new issues. I am not pissed or anything, it is a great rate and I love the magazine, I just think that Amazon and/or RS should state that you may recieve back issues as part of your sub, that is all. One star off for that little nonsense!
