Last night your intrepid team here at BWE.tv braved the elements and made a rare sojourn out of our blogging dungeon to attend the uber-exclusive party at Manhattan’s Hammerstein Ballroom celebrating the 1000th issue of the only counter-culture “underground ‘zine” that puts Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears and N’Sync on its cover – Rolling Stone Magazine! Read all the sordid details after the jump.
We were treated to performances by John “the only Cougar better than Sharon Stone” Mellencamp, the Paul “where’s Dave Letterman?” Shaffer Orchestra, and a very special set by one of our favorite rock and roll acts – The “most over-rated under-rated band in the world” Strokes. The highlights had to be “Juicebox”, which featured the guest vocals of Eddie “I have a new record with an Avacado on it” Vedder, and a mind-blowingly cool rendition of “Walk on the Wild Side” with guest rocker Lou “motherf*cking” Reed.
And what would a party like this be with out the star wattage of A-listers such as Marilyn “my wife is hot enough to make me not look that weird” Manson, Ice “my wife is a porn star” T, Sebastian “remember me from Skid Row” Bach, and “Moby”? Because we were too busy guzzling as much free booze as we could, we failed to take pictures – if you’d like to see some, go here, here, here or here.
