Top definition
A person who likes to move often or is unwilling to settle down in one place or with one person or both. This phrase is based on the old saying "a rolling stone gathers no moss."
"Papa was a rolling stone, my son.
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone."

A magazine that was once about music and (politically correct left-wing) politics, but is now little more than a periodical of adult fan fiction for music journalists who have a crush on reactionary crybaby and sometimes rapper Kanye West.

When they're not depicting him as Jesus, they're calling him a genius who is operating on a completely different level to us Philistines who don't happen to believe that the US Government created the AIDS virus.
I just picked up the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine, but all it is was a bunch of nude drawings of Kanye West. It did come with a free magnifying glass, though.

A metaphor for something that is always moving or changing. This phrase has many connections to music: It's the name of a magazine that focuses on pop culture and music, it's the name of a band, and it's a lyric in a song by Bob Dylan. These three things may be connected. A possible origin of this phrase is the old saying, "a rolling stone gathers no moss."

A political magazine disguised as a music magazine.
Every time I look at a Rolling Stone, I swear there are more political articles than music articles. I don't read a MUSIC magazine for the fucking politics. I read it for the MUSIC.

A "magazine" of advertisements, with the occasional article of value. A great example of corporate America using the entertainment industry as puppets to try and peddle their bullshit wares.
