Before music heavy weights hit the stage of The Paramount they were featured on the cover of America’s top music magazine. Over 12 million young Americans turn to Rolling Stone Magazine to get the scoop on upcoming tours, intimate interviews with artists, and a backstage pass as to what goes on off stage. After years of delivering compelling stories and some controversy along the way, Rolling Stone Magazine continues to highlight leading performers. Here are some artists who made the cover before lighting up The Paramount stage:
