Rolling Stone was first published in 1967 by Jann Wenner, and is the world’s most recognisable music title, launching the careers of Hunter S. Thompson, P.J. O’Rourke, Tom Wolfe, Cameron Crowe, Joe Klein, and Kurt Loder. The Australian edition is the longest running international version of the magazine, with its first edition printed in 1972.
