supple, confident, dispassionately reported and deeply well written biography Its a big book, one that no one will wish longer, but its chapters move past like a crunching collection of singles and not a thumb sucking double album Its a joy to read and feels built to last Hagan is among those relatively rare biographers who keeps macro and micro in yin yang balance Hes in command of the big picture The critic and intellectual in him understands why a mere rock magazine editor Wenner founded Rolling Stone in San Francisco in 1967 matters to the history of the 20th century Come for the essayist in Hagan, stay for the eye popping details and artful gossip Hagan could easily have named dropped his way through this book, yet he doesnt drop names so much as pick them up and coolly appraise them in a line or two In scorning Hagans work, Wenners editorial antennae have failed him He had the nerve to select a writer and not a hagiographer,., and the decision, at the end of his long career, looks good on him Dwight Garner, The New York Times Hagans portrait of Wenner is crisp and cuttingThough Sticky Fingers is, at five hundred and forty two pages, a formidable read, its also terrifically smart and full of anecdotes that anyone remotely interested in rock and roll, publishing, or the legacy of the nineteen sixties will find engrossing Amanda Petrusich, The New Yorker Hagans biography is a colossal achievement of reporting and synthesis, fast paced, compulsively readable, and consistently insightful in its understanding of how and why Wenner was able to turn a modest fanboy tabloid into an iconic cultural force and, after its golden years were behind it, to convert its waning and increasingly nostalgic cultural cachet into a media fiefdom that nearly made him a billionaire Wenner has broken with Hagan, calling his biography tawdry and bemoaning its lack of emphasis on his generations creativity Hes wrong about this the tawdriness goes with the territory and the creativity is on ample display even if sometimes its embarrassing Wenner gave Billy Joel the title line to We Didnt Start the Fire and if Wenners history of breakups and makeups are any indication, it wont be long until the two neighbors are brunching again in the Catskills Christian Lorentzen, New York Hagan has written a barn burner, fast and funny and gossip filled he names names and also bigso big that it can stand as a case study of the entire era The Boomers experience was Wenners experience, and it all showed up in his magazine, and now shows up here the Beatles and the Stones hallucinogens and cocaine sex, sanctioned and illicit, open and hidden Wenner lived a closeted life until he was nearly 50 politics and protests, the war the lifestyles of the ever rich and famous infirmity and old age Rich Cohen, The Atlantic Hagans book is both highbrow cultural digesta curious journalistic trip through the past fifty years of the largely white halls of music biz powerand, thanks to the debauched nature of rock n rolls coagulants sex and drugs, a gloriously trashy read That said, the rock cultural deep dive Hagan provides is also crucial and compelling Sticky Fingerscreates an epitaph for an industry rather than a shrine to a man who shaped it The book beckons a new era, one hopes, of music history, one thats less interested in gilding totems than in looking beyond them, to see what they obscure Jessica Hopper, Bookforum Jann Wenner doesnt like the way a new biography of him turned out Hes called the book deeply flawed and tawdry Maybe thats because thats a pretty good description of Wenners life Whatever his flaws, Wenner emerges here as major cultural influence because of his brilliant creation a publication that changed journalism and captured the zeitgeist The Age of Aquarius has long passed, and Rolling Stone is no longer revolutionary or nearly as relevant as in its heyday But Hagan not only helps us understand how terribly much it seemed to matter, once upon a time He also, through his nuanced portrait of Wenner, shows us how thoroughly the publication reflected its founder, warts and all Margaret Sullivan, The Washington Post Wenner made his archives available helped convince such superstar friends and associates as Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen to go on the record with interviews and did not read the manuscript prior to publication It was a bold move from any media titan, much less from a figure with a wildly mixed reputation whod left plenty of bodies in his wake Sticky Fingers is also the story of a magazine that could rise to brilliance What were left with is a sense of Wenners contrasting sideswhat Hagan calls Jann No 1, the seducer and Jann No 2, the betrayer Alan Light, The Wall Street Journal Magazine Its impossible to chew through Hagans delicious and meticulous retelling of the magnates life and come away unimpressed by Wenners sheer ambition or unmoved by his devotion to rock n roll Its a shame Wenner couldnt read it the same way Kim Willis, USA Today Hagans Wenner biography, which is completely enthralling over 500 plus pages Hagans achievement is to convince you that Wenner really was a kind of genius He had a very clear vision of Rolling Stoneright from the very start, and it was Wenners combination of countercultural coverage wrapped in a shrewdly capitalistic publication that was unique In the CBS Sunday Morninginterview, Wenner complained that Hagans book doesnt capture the joy of what we did and how important it was which is, actually, exactlywhat Sticky Fingersdoes Ken Tucker, Yahoo Joe Hagan s explosive biography of the publishing titan is an addictive tale of sex, drugs and John Lennon s wrath Hagan treats his subject with the same reportorial scope and literary ambition as the New Journalism championed in the column inches of Rolling Stone a thumpingly good read the book is nuanced, and while it is doubtless tawdry this is rock n roll, after all it is nothing if not substantial Charlie Burton, GQ A dark tale about greed and ambition and the pervasive celebrity culture that, according to the author, has become the framework of American narcissism Hagans reporting is as vivid as the work of some of Rolling Stones most famous writers, including the avatar of the new journalism Tom Wolfe and gonzo journalist Hunter Thompson Hagans sources throughout the book are impeccable Sol Stern, The Daily Beast The book Hagan ended up writing is dishy Hagan gets into Wenner s explosive marriage and his struggle with his sexuality but never tawdry Hagan, a former Rolling Stone contributing editor, captures the drama of Wenner s celebrity relationships, including Patty Hearst and Hunter S Thompson, but he is also insightful on how Wenner cannily created a popular and culturally influential magazine by mixing rock n roll with high octane political journalism Los Angeles Times The biography would be independent, not authorized in the usual sense, Hagan explains Wenner is unhappy with the result, and Sticky Fingersgoes a long way towards explaining why this was probably inevitable Andrew Flanagan, NPR Wenner kept an exhaustive archive of all of his records and correspondence, and he gave Hagan full access He also gave his permission or at least acceded to itto write the story as he saw fit, with all the sticky facts that unfailingly accompany a life so large And, man, did Hagan pull it off Sticky Fingers is overstuffed with anecdotes, interviews, and history that not only evoke Wenners persona in all its grandiosity and creative energy, but also that of the era he helped create One way to know that the book is good Although Wenner reportedly regrets the result he has denounced it as tawdry , he doesnt dispute it Hagan did him a favor This is certainly not hagiography, but ultimately, Wenner will loom larger for it Jon Foro, The Book Review Everybody from Mick Jagger to Paul McCartney to David Geffen to Bruce Springsteen talks in Hagans sex drug and rock n roll filled story of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone, which reads like a picaresque novel of the baby boom era Esquire Sticky Fingers is a thorough going over of Wenner and his epic magazine Its also a sharp survey of Americas golden age of print journalism and a bracingly unsentimental study of how the 1960s became a booming business before the decade had even ended Sticky Fingersis a testament to the kind of deeply reported, stylish longform writing that Wenners great idea made possible, for a while anyway Lara Zarum, The Village Voice Clearly, if Wenner didnt like the book, I thought, then Sticky Fingers must be a fascinating read Sure enough, I inhaled the 500 page tome like the many piles of white powder that Wenner and his compatriots consumed during the magazines heyday Steven Hyden, Uproxx With so much sticky material to sort through, handpicked Boswell Joe Hagan was probably bound for a falling out with his subject Rolling Stone has managed to chronicle both the substantial and the tawdry consistently over its bumpy half century journey Likewise, Hagans book, said to have been sold in a bidding war for seven figures, manages both with a rich bounty of lively anecdotes James Sullivan, The San Francisco Chronicle Its a delectable rise and fall of a man who once stated that his ambition was to become the Henry Luce of the counterculture Hagan is a marvelous stylist He has a genuine passion for music and does a superb job of explaining the cultural shifts the magazine has navigated, from Richard Nixons presidency to the era of Donald Trump Davin Leonard, Bloomsberg A perceptive account that also details the bruised feelings, grudges, feuds and stitch ups left in Wenners wake A terrific, sometimes comic portrait of a music biz mogul Neil Spencer, The Guardian Exhaustively researched and startlingly candid Jann Wenner, who seems all appetite, is best at creating celebrity and then trading on it He commercialized that talent in a singular magazine that blasted the establishment even as it became establishment itself Joe Hagans book, occasionally giddy but never fawning, puts Jann Wenner in his rarefied, wealthy and fundamentally lonely place Carlo Wolff, The Pittsburgh Post Gazette The book is a subtle reading of the workings of American celebrity and the New York that Wenner, who founded the magazine in San Francisco in 1967, would come to inhabit The true stylistic influencers of the following decade are colourfully revealed But so too is what the stars Rolling Stone sometimes slavishly covered truly thought of Wenner Edward Hel, The Guardian An exhaustive, wildly entertaining biography that pulls no punches Wenner, now 71, comes off as an incorrigible egotist blinded by money, fame and cocaine a visionary who turned into a back stabbing businessman, rejected 1960s idealism, and flew off to the Caribbean in his private jet You can almost get a contact high from reading Sticky Fingers But the comedown is brutal for anyone who cares about journalistic ethics or liberal ideology Thor Christensen, The Dallas Morning News A lurid and revelatory tale of drugs, sexand powerWenners voracious appetitefor power, status, drugs, drink and sex, is vividly chronicled in this engrossing study of how he turned a small rock n roll fan paper into one of the most important and influential magazines in American publishing history Mick Brown, The Telegraph Hagan s book resists the pressures of hagiography, chronicling in immense detail Wenner s ambition, his public rise to prominence, his private feuds and some major miscalculations, such as rejecting a lucrative offer from Hearst to buy Rolling Stone Zach Schonfeld, People Hagan is a terrific storyteller with a keen ear for killer quotes Neal Justin, Minneapolis Star Tribune Looking at Rolling Stone today is like watching a dodgy videotape of a funeral for the idea that long form, serious, intensive, irreverent and creative music journalism should be a valuable part of our cultural discourseBut reading Sticky Fingers reminds us of what was, what could have been, and what just might rise from the dead, if we all do our part I plan to do mine Jeff Miers, Buffalo News Hagan s bio doesn t disappoint At than 500 pages, the book digs deep into Wenner s life and spins a warts and all tale of one of America s last media titans Steven Ward, The Clarion Ledger A well written and thorough biography of the magazine founded during the 1960s counterculture that brought real journalistic standards to rock and roll writingfilled with colorful characters Dan DeLuca, The Philadelphia Inquirer Founded 50 years ago, Rolling Stone was a self proclaimed beacon of radical counterculture But as revealed in Sticky Fingersa new biography of Jann, written by Joe Haganmany of the magazines staffers didnt just chronicle sex, drugs and rock n roll They lived it, hardcore Hardeep Phull, New York Post Sticky Fingers, meticulously researched and reported, is the result of hundreds of interviews, not only with famed musicians and actors, but friends, business associates, and employees of Wenner going back decades And oftentimes, what theyve said is deeply critical Two pages into the prologue, Wenner is likened to a boy vampire and, according to his own staff, a starfucker With good reason, as the next 500 pages makes clear Elon Green, Columbia Journalism Review Rife with juicy celebrity gossip and insider detail And Wenner has already expressed his disappointment But than that, it tells, in full, the story of a manand magazinewho, for better or worse, came to define his generation David Marchese, Vulture The first biography of the magazines founder is much critical than HBOs conveniently timed new documentary, and its a better tribute for it its scope and rigor ultimately do far to honor its subject Sticky Fingers is undeniably substantial, an engrossing and exceptionally well reported chronicle of a cultural empire and its emperor A formidable tribute to an American original and a titan of his age, an age were arguably still living in Sticky Fingers really does print the legend and all the news that fits Jack Hamilton, Slate Hagans book tells us about rock stardom than plenty of actual rock biographies Michael Hann, Financial Times A fair and even handed assessment of Wenner, whose treachery toward family, friends, colleagues and employees is the stuff of legend I understand why Wenner didn t like the Sticky Fingers title The negative connotations are obvious I bet he was hoping for something like Citizen Wenner Michael Heaton, Cleveland.com Hagan is great at plumbing the dark side of the boom years A dense and dishy and hilariously hypercritical broadside that burrows deep into Wenners thorny personal life Rob Harvilla, The Ringer Its a book of tensions between fandom and journalistic integrity, between financing and rebellion, between personality and projection And its as much a story of the modern media landscape as it is the story of Wenners life Haley Cunningham, Hazlitt Hagan s 547 page opus is a delectable peek behind the curtain of one of the most influential outlets in pop culture history Simon Houpt, The Globe and Mail Drawing from than 100 hours of conversation with Wenner as well as interviews with musicians, writers, publishers, friends, lovers, and past and present employees of the magazine, Hagan has fashioned a fascinating biography of a controversial figure and the iconic publication he started Booklist, starred review Much like its spiritual cousin Saturday Night Live, Rolling Stonemagazine has been a murderers row of talent for decades Working with his subjects full consent and participation, the author manages to create a far deeper portrait than many readers will expect In capturing Wenners legend, Hagan creates a moving portrayal of a complicated, brilliant, flawed man who genuinely moved the needle on American culture Sticky Fingers is a lasting legacy for the keeper of rock n rolls watchtower Kirkus As freelance writer Hagan posits in this searingly honest biography, Rolling Stone and its founder, Jann Wenner, turned rock stars into celebrities, fed salacious fare to slavering fans, and assembled a staff of writers including Ralph Gleason, Greil Marcus, and Jon Landau who elevated rock music criticism into serious writing Drawing on hundreds of hours of interviews with Wenner who exercised no control over the book , his family and friends, writers whove worked for the magazine, and musicians Hagan has provided an entertaining insiders history of a legendary magazine Publishers WeeklyA delicious romp through the heyday of rock and roll and a revealing portrait of the man at the helm of the iconic magazine that made it all possible, with candid look backs at the era from Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Elton John, Bono, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, and others The story of Jann Wenner, Rolling Stone s founder, editor, and publisher, and the pioneering era he helped curate, is told here for the first time in glittering, glorious detail Joe Hagan provides readers with a backstage pass to storied concert venues and rock star hotel rooms he tells never before heard stories about the lives of rock stars and their handlers he details the daring journalism Tom Wolfe, Hunter S Thompson, P.J ORourke and internecine office politics that accompanied the start up he animates the drug and sexual appetites of the era and he reports on the politics of the last fifty years that were often chronicled in the pages of Rolling Stone magazine Supplemented by a cache of extraordinary documents and letters from Wenner s personal archives, Sticky Fingersdepicts an ambitious, mercurial, wide eyed rock and roll fan of who exalts in youth and beauty and learns how to package it, marketing late sixties counterculture as a testament to the power of American youth The result is a fascinating and complex portrait of man and era, and an irresistible biography of popular culture, celebrity, music, and politics in America.
