“Rolling Stone” Tries To Wash That “Hills” Cover From Its Offended Readers’ Memories

May 15th, 2008 // 15 Comments

20797504-20797508-slarge.jpgAnyone with a working knowledge of The Hills and Don Henley & Co. can feel free to draw parallels between each of the individual cover subjects of Rolling Stone‘s last two issues; me, I’m just going to wonder what demographic Jann Wenner et al are going to pander to next time out. Maybe this guy?

R.S., How about a Van Halen cover next? That would be very cool. It’s good not to have anything to do with rap on the cover.

Because clearly, that’s been such a problem this year. (Dude does know who Barack Obama is, right?)

  1. Dick Laurent is dead.

    Cocaine: Not Even Once

  2. Ned Raggett

    A true Boy Scout, that Don.

  3. Thierry

    @Ned Raggett: Maybe he’s a Sufjan fan?

  4. Ned Raggett

    @Thierry: Truly, the end of the innocence.

    Oh shit, is that a Free Tibet shirt, Joe Walsh? Unfortunately it doesn’t really match Henley’s Chairman Mao shirt.

  6. Artie Fufkin

    Glenn looks a kid who just pooped his pants.

  7. Audif Jackson Winters III

    Dye that hair red, and Timothy B. Schmitt is Eric Stolz as Rocky Dennis in “Mask.”

    Saw this cover last night at CVS and thought to myself: “Gee, so glad to know that they’re back to the old fogey covers.” Guess The Hills shoot was their yearly fluke, like Zac Efron and Fall Out Boy.

  9. Chris Molanphy

    Henley is totally Lauren Conrad, which means Frey has to be Heidi.

    Timothy B. Schmidt is Audrina.

    Rolling Stone commenters are the worst. They are every 40-year-old guy from 1987.

    Actually, they all look like old men who can’t quite muster it.
