    Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine by Joe Hagan. This is the story of how one man’s ego and ambition captured the 1960’s youth culture of rock and roll and turned it into a hothouse of fame, power, politics, and riches that would last for 50 years. Wenner gave Joe Hagan exclusive access to his vast archive of correspondence, rare documents, recordings, and never-before-seen images. Hagan stunningly renders the lives behind a magazine that began as a scrappy rebellion and became a locus of influence. Featuring interviews with Mick Jagger, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, Elton John, Pete Townshend, Yoko Ono, David Geffen and dozens of others, this is an unforgettable biography of one of the most significant cultural forces of our time.
