The Rolling Stone 50 Immortals

If you check the archives of this site you will know that my opinion of Rolling Stone magazine is not too high but every once in awhile they put together something interesting and their The Immortals: The Fifty Greatest Artists of All Times is pretty interesting. Having musicians writing about musicians that inspire them is a great idea and some highlights for me are Little Steven’s piece on the Rolling Stones, Little Richard on Little Richard (!), and The Ramones by Lenny Kaye. The only one I was surprised at was they had Joe Perry write about Chuck Berry. I suppose Keith Richards was busy. Anyhow, this article is something that I can finally recommend that you read by the formerly great, then kind of OK, now pretty much crap Rolling Stone.
