Jann Wenner‘s life and career will go under the microscope for the first time in a biography in Joe Hagan’s long-awaited project–STICKY FINGERS: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine (Knopf), which is due out October 24. In the book Wenner opens up his personal and professional life to the scrutiny of a journalist for the first time, and the book examines his life, from his youth in San Francisco and the rocky first days of Rolling Stone, to his seismic rise as a 1970s kingmaker of rock and a media mogul of Manhattan. The book draws from Wenner’s vast archive of correspondence and rare documents, items that have never before been made available to a journalist.
