Topic: I got the Stones on the cover of my mag! Return to archive

Saint Sway after 10 years of art directing wine mags, I recently made the leap over to art directing a rag called PC magazine. Its a huge publication about computers and techy gadgets.

anyway, the cover story for the new issue in on the best new portable laptops. So obviously they wanted to show 2 of the top ones on the cover. So what we did was put PICS OF THE STONES PRESS CONFERENCE displayed on the cover. My Creative Director (who's really cool!) picked out a great shot of Ronnie & Keef jamming and another of Mick doing what he does best. I was at the press conference so I'm psyched that we ran those pics. Plus, its some good free publicity for my fav bands upcoming tour.

in the upper corner we have a pair of mp3 players and appropriately on them the songs playing are Crue's version of "Street Fighting Man" and Devo's "Satisfaction".

anyway... its on newstands this week!! Don't feel obligated to buy a copy or anthing but do check it out. Just go to the tech section of your newstand and look for the press conference pics.

Monkey Woman Very, very cool! Fans doing their bit in keeping up the Stones awareness in the general public! I'll keep my eyes open for the French edition to see if they give it the same cover.

Nellcote Sway, you Hot Dog you!
I got my copy in the mail last week, and said to myself,
here comes the pre tour publicty, which leads me to purchase any and all mags with Stones on 'em, all the time you had a hand in it.
That gets the WICKED PISSA award of the day!
ROCK ON!!!

Saint Sway wow! cool to see that someones seen it! and others are on the look out.

my only goal in this industry is to somehow, somewhere, someday get to do an actual story on them. But for now this is pretty cool.
