As Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show once sang, "Is the thrill that'll getcha / When you get your picture / On the cover of the Rolling Stone."

That hit song did the trick, as Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show indeed appeared on the front of the music magazine in March 1973. By that time, the rock 'n' roll rag was half a decade old and already an institution. In its early years, Jann Wenner's magazines featured many hot musicians of the era. 

Here are some early covers of Rolling Stone released between 1968 and 1970. Can you name the musicians?

There really was a "Win a date with Pig Pen", vocalist and keyboardist of the Grateful Dead, #1. I can't remember where I saw it. He doesn'tseem to be named after the Charlie Brown character. Hedated Janis Joplin, I think briefly.

9/11 - some of them may have departed too soon but a lot of their great music lives on

Not my fault. We only had a subscription to Better Homes and Gardens.

9/11--in fact, I missed 9 and 11. Wouldn't know any of the members of Iron Butterfly by sight, but I did recall the story I heard about In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida. It was supposed to be "in the Garden of Eden", but the lead singer was supposedly too bloody high to pronounce it correctly (funny, he didn't have a problem with the rest of the song...).

9/11. I don't remember MC5 & I thought #5 looked like George Harrison.

Clapton does look like Harrison in that photo. I was not surprised that they had George as one of the choices.
