Wait, Rolling Stone was Relevant?!
Long before Rolling Stone magazine was putting arguably the worst “band” alive on its cover (for an issue claiming to provide the “State of Rock,” no less), it was a relevant and credible music magazine. In an effort to prove this, RS is placing their entire archive online. Problem is, unlike Spin magazine which has placed their archive online for free, RS is charging $29.95 for a yearly subscription. That’s a significant price to pay for old issues even if they are considerably better than anything RS currently produces. Of course, there are still 1.5 million people purchasing the current issues, so what do I know?
