The Stones' RS Debut
The Rolling Stones first appeared on the cover of RS for the August 10, 1968 issue, around the time of the release of Beggars Banquet. The album was a return to form after the more experimental Their Satanic Majesties Request. As RS Editor and Publisher Jann S. Wenner wrote in the cover story, "[Beggars Banquet] is the best record they have yet done. In all aspects it is a great album; great Rolling Stones material and performance; a great rock & roll album, without pretense, an achievement of significance in both lyrics and music."
