Rolling Stone Magazine 1971

In 1971 Rolling Stone magazine wrote a great 2 part article (spread across two editions) about the Beach Boys called California Sage that is VERY hard to get a hold of today. My amazing friend Michael Volpe gave me both of those editions for my birthday so I took pictures of them to share with everyone!

Highly recommended. P.S. To anyone who cares to know, I am going to be reuploading all of the content from this blog that I still have (plus more content) to my own server so that they can't be taken down by the hosting website any more. Let me know what stuff you want me to re-upload first, because this is going to be a project that takes weeks and I don't know where to begin. 5 or 6 years worth of material is difficult to sort through.
