Rolling Stone magazine started in San Francisco but made waves across American pop culture. It was shaped and catapulted into success partly by Ben Fong-Torres, who was the magazine’s first music editor. His landmark interviews, a list that consists of hall-of-famers — like Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, Tina Turner, Grateful Dead, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, and Stevie Wonder — shaped the way America consumed the countercultural movement of the time.
