the documentary



In 1968, a 23-year-old quick-witted Chinese American kid with a passion for Rock ‘n’ Roll joined a tiny new publication in San Francisco to run its music section. The fledgling magazine was a gutsy start-up and was none other than Rolling Stone Magazine.

LIKE A ROLLING STONE: The Life & Times of Ben Fong-Torres is a feature documentary about Ben Fong-Torres, an unlikely and charismatic hero of the Sex, Drugs and Rock n’ Roll era of the 1960’s and 70’s.

As part of the original nucleus of Rolling Stone, Ben was front and center of the big bang moment of rock journalism. Ben Fong-Torres’ work is known to anyone within earshot of a radio or a newsstand during the last 45 years.
