Comparing Rolling Stones Covers


Here are the two covers that the media is comparing.  The issue on the left was put out right after the Charles Manson murders.  Here’s what I see as the huge difference.  Charles Mason is not handsome and almost angelic.  He does not look like a rock star.  While I don’t think Charles Manson should be on any covers of anything, there’s a world of difference between the two covers!

    Manson’s picture/painting is also an odd color – it’s supposed to look surreal. The other cover is a picture, and the subject looks much more relatable. You’re right – these covers are definitely making different statements.

    • By far. The one on the right could be the next Justin Bieber the way they are presenting it. That’s what disturbs me so much.
