Rolling Stone: The Covers 1972-2010

September 3, 2010

Last night, Rolling Stone: The Covers 1972-2010 opened at Artisan.

I haven’t bought a single issue of Rolling Stone magazine, nor am I terribly knowledgeable about music or the music industry, but I do know this publication has become an archive of who’s doing what, what’s hot and what’s happening in the world of music.

For any magazine, the cover is a window to the issue and is a voice for its contents. Simply on viewing the cover, we get a snapshot into what was happening at that period in time. And, if your band made it onto the cover, well, I’ve heard it’s the music industry’s equivalent of making it onto the cover of Time Magazine.

If you’re a collector, a music-o-phile, graphic designer, or just interested in looking at a bunch of magazine covers, the show continues until 2 October, 2010.
