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.

One of the worst magazines I've seen yet. Laughable content includes "Top 100 Guitarists ever" or, even worst, "Top 100 bands ever". Rather than base it on skill/performance/ect, Rolling Stone thought it would be much better to simply list every popular band from the 70s and earlier.
Rolling Stone editor> top 100 bands ever... ok ummm... the beatles... umm... the beatles... uhhhh... oh, and like, that band that did the song "stairway to heaven" or something. guys I don't know any other bands

Rolling Stone editor 2> dude, just put the beatles down

A magazine that started off being cool, in the 60s, and is now a bi-weekly trove of bullshit extolling rap "music" as the next frontier in art.
I cancled my subscription to Rolling Stone after they compared Eminem to Elvis.
