ali rolling stone 1975

Okay, my very first magazine subscription was to the Weekly Reader. But the very first one that I paid for with my own money, the one I chose over all the others on my somewhat lengthy list, was Rolling Stone.

It was 1975, I was a junior in high school – ah, the playful days of youth! -and I promise you I was tempted by the other mags on my list: Glamour, Self, The New Yorker, Vogue, Time, People, Cosmopolitan… Β But Rolling Stone won out, and I never regretted it. I renewed that subscription yearly for a long, long time.

 

I read every word of every issue, over and over. And then over again.
