Rolling Stone Founder in Rock Fame Hall

Rolling Stone magazine founder Jann Wenner will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for lifetime achievement in the nonperformer category, the museum foundation said.

“Due to Wenner’s vision, Rolling Stone uniquely contributed to the perpetuation and popularity of rock and roll with thoughtful, in-depth and often controversial coverage that legitimized rock’s contribution,” the New York City-based foundation said Monday.

“Rolling Stone’s unprecedented access to major artists put the magazine in a class of its own.”

Wenner co-founded Rolling Stone with writer Ralph J. Gleason in 1967.

He will be inducted along with performers George Harrison, Prince, Jackson Browne, Bob Seger, Traffic, ZZ Top and the Dells in an induction ceremony to be held March 15 in New York City.

The museum is located in Cleveland.
