What was the name of the magazine founded by Jann Wenner and Ralph J. Gleason?
Rolling Stone Magazine was created in 1967 in San Francisco, California, by Jann Wenner, and jazz critic Ralph J Gleason who was working for the San Francisco Chronicle at the time. Wenner had to borrow 7,500 dollars from his family and future in-laws to set it up. The name was based on the 1950s blues song “Rollin’ Stone” and Bob Dylan’s famous hit song “Like a Rolling Stone.” It was meant to showcase the artistic tastes and political sensibilities of the younger generation. And the cover price of the first issue was only 25c.
