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 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 "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.

The great rock band that started the Hard Rock genere, which was sucsessed by Led Zeppelin. Other bands were equally amazing like Queen, AC DC, Metallica, Styx, Aerosmith, and of course Guns and Roses. By the late 1980s the Hard Rock Genere starts to die down after Nirvana happened. Now there is the crappier alternetive, pop and rap generes. What is this world coming to? First Hard Rock got rid of disco and this how u repay us? Hard Rock shall live on for generations to come"
"Hard Rock is the best music ever! If you disagree, then may the Hand of God strike you down! He invented The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Metallica, AC DC, Styx, Aerosmith, and Guns and Roses"

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.
