A cultural fixture of what, I ask you.

Curiously, I don't see any mention of *cough,cough* Led Zeppelin in there.

Yeah, Rolling Stone is 50 this year… and the mag is less than a pamphlet!! My wife works in a college library and she brought home the recent issue with the Trumpnado cover and I was astonished to see how the thing has bled ad pages even in the last 18 months! I think it was 48 pages overall! And dudes, those were clay-coated pages! In other words, Rolling Stone is now, physically, Parade Magazine with a glossy cover! The last time I saw an issue it had at least a third more pages. It can't be long for this world as a print magazine. That said, Matt Taibbi's political coverage is excellent.

But yeah, the comparison to Parade Magazine is apt. Both aimed for a readership of retirees.

I was a subscriber for years, mostly for the reviews. But they started cutting way back on those so I cut the subscription. For the money, Mojo is way better. You might not get the hip stuff in Mojo but it is a music lovers magazine for sure. I can spend hours reading each issue, vs. 15 minutes with RS.
