The Rolling Stone Interview

The Rolling Stone Interview is a feature article in the American magazine "Rolling Stone" that sheds light on notable figures from the worlds of music, popular culture, or politics. Editor Jann Wenner has said that the interview is "part [ly] based on "The Paris Review", which featured definitive interviews with writers like Ernest Hemingway and John Steinbeck, exploring their lives, their philosophy and their technique." The interviews are noteworthy for their expasiveness and their ability to delve into the subject's most personal details and experiences.

Subjects of the interviews have ranged from former presidential candidate John Kerry to the landmark 1975 interview with John Lennon.
