Welcome to my Music Diary – today for the 9th November!

Rolling Stone - Number One (9th November 1967)

Rolling Stone – Number One (9th November 1967)

On the 9th November 1967, the first issue of the Rolling Stone Magazine was published in San Francisco and sold for 25 Cents. On the cover is a picture of John Lennon, while acting for the film „How I won the War“ (directed by Richard Lester). The moniker „Rolling Stone“ was a compilation of the three things: The famous Muddy Waters song, Bob Dylan’s first Rock’n’Roll record and – of course – The Rolling Stones. The magazine was founded by Jann Wenner, who is still the editor-in-chief, and music critic Ralph J. Gleason. The total circulation in 2012 was over 1.4 millions only for the US market. Over the years the Rolling Stone was also published all over the world and in different languages.

Music Diary – 18th July

Welcome to my personal music diary for the 18th July!

In 2009 I had my long overdue live experience with the one and only Mrs. Patti Smith! The musician, singer and poet played an open air gig in Wels at the so called Schl8hof. Although Patti got a cold that night she did an awesome performance and served us a nice mixture of her classics and some nice surprises.
