Ben Fong-Torres

During his 11-year stint as an editor for Rolling Stone, Ben interviewed such musical luminaries as Ray Charles, Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon, Marvin Gaye, and Elton John. With creditials like that, he was a natural choice to report on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. An author and former disc jockey, Ben has also appeared in the pages of GQ, Esquire, Playboy, and numerous other publications.
