I suppose I could grumble that Rolling Stone has Shaun White on its cover instead of real musicians. Rolling Stone has been profiling actors, athletes, and other non-musicians for a long time, so it’s kind of a moot point.
But here’s where I’m griping – Shaun White is not a rocker. He’s a snowboarder, and a very good one at that. So where is he lighting his snowboard on fire like Jimi Hendrix and playing air guitar?
I haven’t read the article yet but what could be an interesting article about how Shaun White redefined snowboarding for Americans (and the rest of the world) will probably be wasted on paragraphs about his hair, and how he wants to rock out. And let’s not forget that Shaun White will probably come across as lonely.
