Jack Johnson gets Rolling Stone cover

Jack_Johnson_Rolling_Stone_coverNorth Shore of Oahu resident Jack Johnson made the cover of Rolling Stone this week.

Nothing new to report—beyond Johnson’s new album Sleep Through the Static spending a second week at No. 1 in Billboard. (It debuted in the top spot last week.)

There was also this Honolulu Star-Bulletin story about tickets for Johnson’s annual Kokua Festival being resold by Mainland ticket buyers for upwards of $1,000 apiece for the best seats—a 1,000 percent mark-up. Tickets for the April 19 and 20 benefit concerts featuring Johnson and Dave Matthews completely sold out in 20 minutes on Saturday, leaving many fans empty-handed and upset.

But back to the Rolling Stone news. It’s Johnson’s first cover for the magazine—still a serious milestone for any musician—and we kind of dug the cover photo.

An excerpt of the story is here, and a fairly voluminous photo gallery here.

Check out my reviews of Sleep here and in the March/April issue of HAWAII Magazine.
