Jann Wenner ‘attacked’ over controversial comments about black and female stars

Rolling Stone Magazine co-founder Jann Wenner is being “attacked” for not including black and female stars in his new book, according to Sky News host Andrew Bolt.

Mr Wenner was removed from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame over controversial comments he made about black and female musicians.

Mr Wenner said: “It’s not that they’re inarticulate, although, go have a deep conversation with Grace Slick or Janis Joplin. Please, be my guest.”

“You know, Joni (Mitchell) was not a philosopher of rock ‘n’ roll. She didn’t, in my mind, meet that test of Black artists,” he continued.

“You know, Stevie Wonder, genius, right? … Maybe Marvin Gaye, or Curtis Mayfield? I mean, they just didn’t articulate at that level.”

Mr Bolt discussed the issue – and about the allegations made against comedian Russell Brand – with writer and broadcaster Esther Krakue, who says Mr Wenner is being convicted of committing a “thought crime”.
