Rolling Stone Magazine: Stories from the Edge   

Synopsis

Rolling Stone Magazine: Stories From the Edge chronicles the last 50 years of American music, politics and popular culture through the story of the magazine that understood rock ‘n’ roll was more than music – it was a cultural force that re-shaped America. 

Drawing on previously unheard recordings provided by some of Rolling Stone’s greatest writers, as well as original interviews, rare photos and footage, the series is an inside look at how Rolling Stone helped shape the zeitgeist and has endured for a half-century.

Directed by Academy Award®-winner Alex Gibney (Going Clear: Scientology & the Prison of Belief) and Emmy®-winner Blair Foster (Sinatra: All or Nothing at All), the voice of Rolling Stone is narrated by Jeff Daniels (The Martian, The Newsroom).
