When Noah Shachtman left The Daily Beast to take over as editor-in-chief of Rolling Stone, he promised to bring his nose for news with him. He told The New York Times’ Marc Tracy, “It’s got to be faster, louder, harder. We’ve got to be out getting scoops, taking people backstage, showing them parts of the world they don’t get to see every day.”
Shachtman is keeping his word. Rolling Stone just dropped a major story this week, taking on one of rock’s legends.
