John Lennon Graces Premiere Issue
November 9th, 1967
The cover of the premiere issue of Rolling Stone featured a photo of John Lennon dressed in military attire for his role in Richard Lester's film How I Won the War. Inside, the issue featured more photos of the Beatle along with a Lennon quote: "I feel I want to be them all – painter, writer, actor, singer, player, musician. I want to see which one turns me on and what I'll be like when I've done it." Also, Rolling Stone founder and editor Jann S. Wenner reviewed the film. "Sometimes the movie gets a little exhausting," he wrote. "But it's definitely something to see: John Lennon is a good actor."
