Answer: The cover of the very first issue of Rolling Stone magazine was an image of John Lennon from his film “How I Won the War”. Lennon would go on to grace the cover two more times within the first ten issues on his way to becoming one of the most featured people on the cover of Rolling Stone. It was revealed in the first issue that the title of the magazine was a reference to the 1950 blues song, “Rollin’ Stone”, recorded by Muddy Waters, the rock and roll band the Rolling Stones, and Bob Dylan’s hit single “Like a Rolling Stone”.
