On April 19th, Rolling Stone launched a redesigned, reimagined rollingstone.com. The new site is cleaner and easier to navigate. Regular doses of daily rock news, photo galleries and music reviews with new audio and video features will be augmented– you’ll be able to instantly listen to any piece of music you read about on the site, and more performances by musicians who visit the magazine’s offices will be posted. In addition, three new blogs will debut: Rob Sheffield on pop culture, David Fricke on music and Matt Taibbi on politics.
Another portion of the site, “Rolling Stone All Access,” will offer those who sign up the full contents of each new issue as it hits newsstands. And, for the first time ever, readers will be granted All Access to the entire Rolling Stone archives. You’ll be able to lose yourself in every issue since issue # 1 started back in San Francisco in November 1967. Every review published, every cover and the deepest, most thoughtful interviews with rock legends, from John Lennon to Lil Wayne, Bob Dylan to Kurt Cobain – and 43 years of journalism that has defined our times, from Hunter S. Thompson to P.J. O’Rourke to Matt Taibbi.
Give yourself a few hours, and you’ll find yourself immersed in the stories of our era: the good times and the bad, the culture, the politics and all the ridiculous hairstyles.
