235. Sticky Fingers author Joe Hagan on interviewing Paul McCartney and Bob Dylan, the future of Rolling Stone and the Jann Wenner / Trump parallels

On this off-formate episode, journalist Joe Hagan joins me to talk about one of the best music books of last year, his biography of Rolling Stone magazine and its founder Jann S Wenner. We discuss his unique experiences interviewing Paul McCartney and Bob Dylan, the mutually exploitative relationship between Wenner and Mick Jagger, the future of both Wenner and Rolling Stone, how he found an ending to a story that is arguably not yet over, and the parallels between Jann Winner and a certain orange haired President. My Favorite Album is a podcast on the impact great music has on our lives. Each episode features a guest on their favorite album of all time - why they love it, their history with the album and how it’s influenced them.

Jeremy Dylan is a filmmaker, journalist, concert promoter and photographer. He directed the the feature music documentary Jim Lauderdale: The King of Broken Hearts (out now!) and the film Benjamin Sniddlegrass and the Cauldron of Penguins.
