With the recent release of History of the Eagles on Blu-ray and DVD, it made sense to revisit Cameron’s Rolling Stone cover story from September, 1975.
Even though the Carrie remake (starring Chloë Grace Moretz) was recently pushed back to October 2013, we still wanted to debut this 1979 Rolling Stone cover story and interview with the original Carrie, Sissy Spacek. The topic of Carrie is covered, along with Badlands, Coal Miner’s Daughter, some projects that didn’t quite get off the ground, Sissy’s musical background and much more. It’s a 6,500 word journey and we hope you take the trip with us.
David Bowie is celebrating his birthday today and we’ve decided to join him. Cameron and Bowie go back to the mid 70′s including an in-depth 1976 Playboy interview, a short RS article on his ’76 tour and his cover story in Rolling Stone. Most recently, Cameron contributed liner notes to the 25th anniversary re-release of Station to Station. Happy Birthday David!
We have an exciting new addition to the Journalism section today. Cameron profiled rock manager Irving Azoff for the June 15, 1978 issue of Rolling Stone. At the time, Azoff was the most powerful manager in the industry. He would go on to produce Fast Times at Ridgemont High, head MCA, start his own label (Giant Records) and much more. Azoff is currently the CEO/President of Front Line Management and Live Nation and was recently ranked #1 on Billboard‘s Power 100 list for the music industry.
Neil Young turns 67 today and is showing no signs of slowing down. His output is amazing and his music, as vibrant as ever. In the past few months, we’ve been treated to two wonderful albums with Crazyhorse (Americana and Psychedelic Pill) and a new Jonathan Demme documentary, Neil Young Journeys (recently released on DVD and Blu-ray).
Here’s the links to three Rolling Stone journalism pieces. Two were in-depth cover stories five years apart along with a short piece during the 1978 tour where Cameron was able to “join” the stage show. Happy Birthday Neil!
