    1. Joe Levy Jann S. Wenner Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the The Rolling Stone Interviews book, this is one of the most wanted Joe Levy Jann S. Wenner author readers around the world.

    2. Worth anyone's time who needs to understand that celebrities are rather odd people who seem to march to the beat of a different drum than the vast majority. Jagger seemed the sanest by far with Coppela interesting in his discussion on Apocalypse Now.

    3. Here are the impressions that I got from this book of interviews:- John Lennon was a complete loon.- Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love really loved each other and their daughter a lot.- Ozzy Osborne didn't start out as a guy who liked to bite heads off of bats.- Spike Lee is a very angry man.- Axl Rose is out of his mind.- Patti Smith is a gentle person.- Eminem really cares about children.These aren't necessarily facts--just the feelings that I got from how these people answered questions.

    4. *Back-dating reviews based on snips I find*I openly have a penchant for books of interviews. I just love them. My favourite to date would be Mick Wall’s ‘Appetite For Destruction’, helped mainly because he interviews many if not most of my favourite classic bands back in their early years. So, on a wider scale this interested me just as much with the likes of Eric Clapton to Bruce Springsteen, Robin Williams to Hunter S. Thompson. Basically, I really enjoyed this book – proven by the fac [...]

    5. I started reading Rolling Stone in the early 80's. This is not my best of the best, but there are a lot of gems. However, some of them--like John Lennon's frank, revealing and sometimes unjust interview--have been truncated from the originals I remember. Major complaint: not enough white women or African American musicians/personalities are represented. It's embarrassing to see David Breskin bait Spike Lee right off the bat in 1991; the interview is wasted because of Breskin's personal hang-ups. [...]

    6. Phew! I'm finally finished with this book. I think it was less the number of pages in this book that was daunting as it was how many of the interviews I found really boring. I set down the book several times for weeks on end, before I'd get the discipline to push on through some more. I'm not sorry I read it, but it certainly felt like work at several points. It was worth it for the good interviews, though, and an overall sense of the American music/ pop culture scene, which is still something I [...]

    7. По случай 40-годишнината си списанието "Ролинг Стоун" отделя 40 от най-добрите си интервюта, правени през годините с някои от най-ярките звезди на шоубизнеса, литературата и политиката. Тази книга действително е едно пътешествие във времето и грам не съжалявам за вниманието, [...]

    8. With interviews ranging from Pete Townsend(1968) to Bono(2005) these candid interviews give a slice of life insight into the lives of artists; Joni Mitchell (ok article), Bill Murray (not so good), Truman Capote (as good as an interview can be with Truman), Neil Young (not good at all), Robin Williams (too young to have given a good interview). While not digging as deep as the reader would like these interviews still provide entertainment and a bit of insight. A fair winter read for diving un-ex [...]

    9. Very good interviews with entertainers ranging from Johnny Cash to Kurt Cobain. Beware if you're a huge Lennon fan, as he comes off (in featured interview) as a pompous ass.

    10. Great interviews some better for me than others. They leave you to be biased though. I did learn some from many of the interviews about artist I didn't know before. I just wish there had been more women. 5 out of 40 just isn't enough!

    11. The Rolling Stone Interviews by Jann S. Wenner is a book with interviews on very significant people in the music industry. Mostly based on rock, they (Interviewers vary) ask questions about their life, and how they got into music, and what the meaning of their music is. There are many deep questions with long answers from the people being interviewed. In the book, Wenner is trying to show how musicians got interested in music. This is shown throughout the book, but when Jerry Hopkins (interviewe [...]

    12. The Rolling Stone InterviewsNow I will be the first to admit that I no longer read Rolling Stone. I out grew the magazine a few years back, it happened when I no longer could stand the music that was being covered and I never liked the politics of the magazine. Yet, even with that said, I always thought that the interviews were some of the best published. It all depended on the subject. Rolling Stone interviews people from all areas, so there tends to be interesting and fascinating things to be [...]

    13. From the interior of the book:         "This volume contains the best and most significant of the interviews which appeared in Rolling Stone from the end of 1967 through the early months of 1971.  Taken together, they comprise a fascinating panorama of recent musical history: the songs and how they came to be written, re-written, recorded and played; the groups and how they gathered and grew and evolved and dissolved, then regathered and grew; the musicians, their influences, life historie [...]

    14. As an avid music lover (new and old) and someone generally interested in people, this Rolling Stone collection of interviews was both fascinating, entertaining, and an enjoyable read. Some of the interviews (Curt Kobain, Axl Rose, Courtney Love etc.) were more riveting than others, but as a whole, the book was capturing. It isn't the kind of book that you sit down and read all in one sitting, the reader is able to skip around, put it down and read another interview in a couple weeks, or skip som [...]

    15. Comprehensive collection of Rolling Stone interviews from 1971 to present, with subjects ranging from Kurt Cobain to Joni Mitchell to Gandhi. Some of my favorite interviews are Truman Capote, Andy Warhol conducts the interview and Capote cuts Mick Jagger down to size, and Brian Wilson, which begins with Wilson saying he's been clean for some time and ends with him asking whether Jan Weiner can score them coke. Excellent book for the shelf.

    16. I picked this up at a Boarders for $5 in Panama City while on vacation for some light beach reading. The most surprising thing was that the people who gave the most coherent interviews were Kurt Cobain and Keith Richards, and the only people who hadn’t completely ruined a good portion of their lives with drugs were Bruce Springsteen and Bono. I honestly don’t know how everyone else survived, or managed to make music at all.

    17. Por enquanto, só dois comentários: tradução/revisão péssima (às vezes chega a parecer tradutor automático do Google) e alguns entrevistados completamente irrelevantes no Brasil. Este segundo ponto ainda é compreensível, porque faz parte do pacote, então, para ler John Lennon e Jack Nicholson (uma das melhores), você encara os desconhecidos aqui que são ilustres lá. Ou não; pode pulá-los. Mas o primeiro ponto infelizmente não é compreensível.

    18. It was an interesting read. A person’s ability to enjoy the book is probably dependant on how familiar and interested they are in the interviewees contained within. In general, I enjoyed reading the book. Some of the interviews were more rambling while others more focused. Jim Morrison came across as more intelligent then I realized. It is a fun read if you want some insight into the personalities contained within the book but it is not something that you have to read.

    19. This is a great compilation of some of the best Rolling Stone Magazine interviews going back to the 70's. A good book for readers interested in the names (John Lennon, Bono, Patti Smith, Mick Jagger, Kurt Cobain, etc) or for those simply interested in reading interviews with successful artists. Reading in succession I found it fascinating to see common threads that ran through many of their background stories.

    20. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the interviews with the music celebrities (many now deceased) contained herein. Their perspectives of the future (which is now the present and the past) are very interesting when comparisons to what really happened are made. The interviews with Little Richard and David Crosby are both quite interesting in different ways. I recommend this book to any fan of rock and its beginnings, especially rock in the 60s.

    21. This is a great collection. I enjoyed the interviews from Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan, but I thought I would since I'm a fan. However, I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy the Tina Turner and Neil Young interviews since I don't really like them as performers. I happened to pick this up as Border's was closing and since the book was damaged it only cost $3 not a bad deal.

    22. some real interesting interviews with some real interesting people, selected from throughout the 40+ years of Rolling Stone magazine. i found that even the interviews with people i don't necessarily like/am a fan of, were very interesting and insightful. a book that can easily be read in long stints, or short intervals.

    23. “The Rolling Stone Interviews” might not be the deepest tome ever written, but it’s certainly interesting. If you don’t read anything else in it, be sure to check out Andy Warhol’s “interview” with Truman Capote. As you might expect, it’s terrifically weird.

    24. This was a surprisingly quick read for being a 450+ page book.What can be said? Rolling Stone does a good interview - always has. I especially liked the President Clinton interview. Read about the people you're interested in; skip the ones you don't care about.

    25. It's just what it says it is . . . interviews from Rolling Stone. That's plenty for me. I think that RS is one of the most discounting magazines ever - blown off as some pop culture rag. It's that, too, but so much more . . . quality journalism enveloped in here.

    26. Excellent book that captures the perspective of one of the world's most influential magazine. Fantastic interviews of Eric Clapton, Tina Turner, John Lennon not to mention the Dalai Lama and Hunter Thompson. I would recommend this book to serious pop culture fans.

    27. Was interesting. Was excellent bathroom reading as it hops around. Some I wanted more of and some I wanted less of. My sole issue is that it's kinda boomeresque, not surprising and there are very few interviews written by women.

    28. Read the following interviews out of the book:Jim MorrisonJohn LennonRay CharlesTruman CapoteJohnny CashNeil YoungOriana FallaciBrian WilsonJohnny CarsonJoni MitchellBill MurrayTina TurnerAxl RoseDavid LettermanKurt CobainCourtney LoveBill ClintonThe Dalai LamaBono

    29. as expected a lot of really good interviews, with the odd stinker mixed in.Found it interesting how these types of people generall fall into 1 of 2 categories:they come across as genuine and down to earth(springsteen), or arrogant and self centered (brian wilson)ally enjoyed this.
