FOR MORE INFORMATION AND SCREENINGS:
The lights, the crowds, the music! Ben Fong-Torres covered it all at Rolling Stone, as a writer and their first music editor. Ben’s life is an epic sweep through the world of rock and roll. The American-born son of Chinese immigrants, Ben grew up in Chinatown with only a radio to the outside world. Driven by a passion for music and writing, his groundbreaking work helped define American culture. He became a voice of a generation which changed America forever. Featuring incredible archival footage and intimate interviews with Ben Fong-Torres, Cameron Crowe, Annie Leibovitz, Carlos Santana, Elton John, Steve Martin, Bob Weir, Quincy Jones, Marvin Gaye, Paul McCartney and more, this film brings us the personal story of this legendary journalist.
