A Man’s Jan

by Katherine Barrett Swett

“Insofar as the women, just none of them were as articulate enough
on the intellectual level.”

—Rolling Stone co-founder Jan Wenner, on why he chose only white men
for his book on rock’s ‘masters.’

Wenner the arbiter?
He prefers rock stars who
Think like a man.

Women don’t cut it as
Neither does Jan.
