We go back to late 2010 with a Rolling Stone on the cover of Rolling Stone, as they exclusively bring you Keith Richards memoirs.
Earlier in the month was what would have been John Lennon’s 70th birthday, and there was a tribute concert which Lady Gaga performed at, which was covered by Rolling Stone.
In news, Kid Rock is facing a battle against imposters and lookalikes who go out in public pretending to be him, while The Who are plotting to go on tour in 2011.
Robert Plant is the subject of a Q and A, where he reveals himself to be a fan of Los Lobos.
At the time, halfway through his presidency (though he would win a second term in 2012), there are seven pages dedicated to Barack Obama’s presidency, and the case as to why it has been a success.
The serialisation of Keith Richards memoirs gets twelve pages of coverage, focusing on Rolling Stones success in the 1960s and 1970s.
That was three times as many pages dedicated to Kings Of Leon, as they get set to release their 5th album, looking to follow on from the success of their 4th, Only By The Night.
That album gets reviewed in this edition, getting 4 stars out of 5, being described as “Their U2 moment”
