Joe Hagan - Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine — at Politics and Prose at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Friday, September 21, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Now available in paperback, Hagan’s biography of Rolling Stone’s founder, editor, and publisher, Jann Wenner, is as much a story of daring journalism as it is of the lives and work of the great rock stars from the 1970s and after. Hagan, who has written for New York, Rolling Stone, The Wall Street Journal, and other publications, was granted exclusive access to Wenner’s archives, but retained complete editorial control, making the book both judicious and authoritative—and full of great stories about musicians and concerts, pioneering writers such as Tom Wolfe and Hunter S. Thompson, and Wenner’s evolution from the ambitious twenty-three-year-old who borrowed money from his family to found a rock magazine in 1967 to his near-legendary status as a pop-culture taste-maker.
