Rolling Stone Magazine Makes Debut in 1967 – November 9, 2015


ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE DEBUT: On this day (November 9th) in 1967, the first issue of Rolling Stone Magazine was published in San Francisco. It featured a photo of John Lennon on the cover, dressed in army fatigues while acting in his recent film, “How I Won the War.” The name of the magazine was compiled from three significant sources: the Muddy Waters song; the first rock ‘n’ roll record by Bob Dylan; and The Rolling Stones.

Happy Birthday: Tom Fogerty, Alan Gratzer, and Dennis Stratton.
