In 1968, a 23-year-old quick-witted Chinese American kid with a passion for Rock and Roll joined a tiny new publication in San Francisco with barely room for four desks above a noisy printing press. 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 film about Ben Fong-Torres, an unlikely and charismatic hero of the Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll era of the 1960’s and 70’s.

As part of the original nucleus of Rolling Stone, as a legendary writer and its senior editor in charge of music coverage in those most pivotal years, Ben was front and center of the big bang moment of rock journalism.
