IN WHICH A PERSON CONTINUES TO LONG FOR ERAS SHE DID NOT LIVE THROUGH, VINTAGE ROLLING STONE MAGAZINES PART 8

The 1981 issues may not have yielded much, but they did offer these gems:

1Elviscountrified

September 17, 1981

2standbyyourman

National Reno Gay Rodeo?! I feel like Rolling Stone used to be so much more progressive. Now the only suggestive content is tawdry pornified dreck like the recent Kardashian cover, which pales in comparison to this Brokeback Mountain precursor!

3stevienicks

Stevie Nicks on the September 3rd, 1981 issue.

4Pretenders2ad

I wish I had been able to see The Pretenders.

6pretendersareforreal

If these pink overalls were mass produced, where have they all gone to? Why can’t I find a vintage pair!?

Sean and Yoko

9alicecooper

Alice Cooper just being himself.

Jeans briefs! Sounds comfy.

Keif. No regrets. November 12, 1981.

Richard Belzer before mostly being known as a tv cop.

14andyandchrissie

Andy Kaufman and Chrissie Hynde! Brought together thanks to the magic of the TV show Fridays.

15Princead

An intense Prince ad.

16pretenders

Chrissie Hynde serving face. In awe of that eyeliner and fringe game.

17U2ad

I wish that was all that stood between me and Bono. Rawr.

18zappa

Zappa. Go for the good stuff.

19Pettyad

Tom might not be traditionally good-looking, but I could fall for that.

20reaganeating

Isn’t this disgusting? I hate watching people eat, generally, but Reagan takes it to another level of yuck.

21Pettycover

Petty, fighting the good fight!

22GEsmith

G.E. Smith!

23bruceskating

February 5, 1981. Bruce looks cold.

I love this because somebody added their opinion to these two acts.

One of the best couples of all time, Gilda Radner and G.E. Smith.

29Lennon

I’d love to see John Lennon having a “hard day with the baby”.

30firstfamilygilda

I need to see this!!!!!

31Lennonthrowingshade

One of the best pictures of John Lennon ever. Throwing shade at the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who according to Mia Farrow, was a total creep.

32lennonlounging

It’s so interesting to see icons doing even mundane things.

Joe Strummer just being the most.
