Looking back on when Rolling Stone had a three-person office at 1700 Montgomery St.
On this day in 1967, the first issue of Rolling Stone was published in San Francisco. Founded by Jann Wenner and Ralph Gleason, the music rag has grown from the small team in Fog City to become a media giant, chronicling music trends. A decade after its birth, the magazine moved its headquarters to New York in 1977 and closed the last SF office in the early 1980s. Its presence here will never be forgotten though; and it can be said that through the nurturing of local bands, the music scene has become what it is. Relive that first decade of Rolling Stone in SF with a look back at a cover from each year, up until 1976.
