Rolling Stone mag - cmon now

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by iplaybassguitar, Aug 13, 2007.


  1. was anybody else on the verge of yakking when they saw the cover of the current rolling stone? Zac Efron pretty much shirtless. what is rolling stone thinking? i think i just lost a whole lot of respect for a magazine i previously held in prety high regard.
     
  2. That, then, was your first mistake.



    :ninja:
     
  3. I'm vehemently disagreeing with you in one thread, and completely nodding my head in agreement in another.

    :)

    Rolling Stone is a piece of garbage masquarading as "music journalism". I wouldn't want to use it as TP.

    exactly the question that popped into
    my brain ...

    who really reads this rag anyway ?


    what the heck has happen to rock-n-roll ,
    that some punka$$ like this is on the cover of a supposed rock-n-roll magazine ?
    :eyebrow:
     
  9. Seriously, who is that dude? He looks like a boy-bander. Speaking of boy-bands, why do they even call them bands? None of those doof-wads played an instrument, did they? I keep seeing that "Making The Band" nonsense on MTV or VH1 or something, but they just sing and dance. That ain't no band!! :mad: :mad:

    You actually paid for it?
     
  11. Agreed. There's absolutely no reason to hold that magazine in high regard anymore. In the past year alone, they've done cover stories on such musical giants as Panic At The Disco, Fall Out Boy, and Fergie. :eek:

    I guess you can't blame 'em -- ever since the Internet, it's pretty damn hard to sell magazines.

    I remember when Rolling Stone was about rock & roll.

    If you folks were 15-year-old girls, you'd know exactly who this guy is. And, unfortunately, he is the face of rock and roll for a whole generation of so-called "'tweens."

    High School Musical is Grease for the 21st century and this guy is the latter day John Travolta. Unless Rolling Stone wants to wither and die with the remnants of the post-hippie generation, they've got to start appealing to this demographic.

    Don't be surprised if Hannah Montana shows up on next week's cover.

    In the words of Al Pacino, "Nothing personal. It's just business. You understand, right?"
     
  17. Soulgeezer's a 15 year old girl? :eek:

  19. hey hey hey now, i didnt mean that right before this issue i considered rolling stone to be the best publication ever, just that this is another mis-step taken by a once GREAT magazine.

    i do think u all were exaggerating its badness though. while they might cover some pretty crappy artists, they do also have atricles and reviews about some pretty good artists too, something youll be hardpressed to find in other magazines.

    also, i think they do a good job covering important political topics.
     
  20. Okay, how is that a bad thing?
