This is an excellent look at Rolling Stone Magazine,
as told by the people who were there.
No live music
in this - just the stories and photographs deemed
essential by the producers of this documentary marking
the magazines 25th anniversary.
This tale is a time
capsule of very heavy times - veiled as a special
about a magazine covering Rock & Roll.
The challenge
of making this ambitious project succeed was accomplished
by framing the stories in a non-linear way.

Specific aspects were highlighted by relevance in an
informal succession of chapters:

Rolling Stone Magazine
The Cover Story
Lennon Remembers 1970
Red Hot Chili Peppers "The Naked Truth"
The Rolling Stone Review
Rock and Roll Journalism
Altamont 1969

The Photographers
What Is It About A Photograph?
